DataPath: Integrating Security in the Core of Government Organizations


The biggest challenge in cyber security planning for military and government organizations mostly revolves around quantifying the threat and figuring out how to best protect mission critical networks. Organizations that are evaluating cyber services, need to realize that not all cyber security solutions are created equal, nor do all network environments have the same security requirements. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, DataPath specializes in providing cyber security solutions that are designed to meet the unique needs of mission critical telecommunications networks— involving satellite and fixed wireless technologies. “Our cyber and managed security solutions combine the latest tools, threat intelligence, and our experienced team of experts to prevent, detect, and respond to a wide variety of threats within government networks,” begins David Myers, President and CEO, DataPath.

Founded in 1991, DataPath simplified the process of identifying lurking threats by offering easy to understand bundles of managed cyber security services including the Essential, Assurance, and Vigilance packages, that can be tailored to fit into each customer’s needs. The company’s Essential cyber security package includes the basic elements of a network protection plan and solid security assessment. The Assurance package includes additional software and hardware upgrades as well as periodic security audits. Lastly, their Vigilance package adds a number of features including online real-time security alerts, 24/7 on-site incident response, and post incident investigation services.

DataPath also provides a wide array of managed security services to meet the needs of various customers operating in the government, infrastructure, aerospace, and broadcast markets. The firm’s products span across the entire continuum of network architecture. Further, their MaxView Enterprise Network Monitor and Control (NMC) software is proffered as the solution for government agencies, leading broadcast organizations, and satellite operators to manage all of their IP devices across the entire network from a single console.

The software gives a single, consistent interface to manage all equipment, elements and service applications within a customer’s network across all locations. By providing a centralized view and control of their entire network, MaxView allows users to improve operational efficiency and incident response time. “Our continual enhancements to MaxView Enterprise highlight our commitment to quality and innovation in advanced software tools that every mission critical network needs in order to be successful,” says Myers.

DataPath’s array of professional services includes global field support services, training and documentation services, information assurance and logistics engineering, and 24/7 network operations support and a separate 24/7 dedicated Cyber Security Operations Center (CSOC). Built on government-grade security protocols, DataPath’s cyber and managed security solutions are backed by 24×7 monitoring, support, and on-site incident response. “We have over two decades of experience in protecting high security government and military networks,” extols Myers.
