Top 20 Homeland Security Solution Companies - 2019

The department of homeland security (DHS) has often lacked behind when it comes to technology adoption. However, with the rise of cyberthreats and other dynamic security challenges, the DHS is now facing increased pressure to overhaul outdated systems and accelerate its own digital transformation journey. In a quest to offer better services to the citizens, the DHS is adopting sophisticated technologies such as cloud computing, AI, and analytics. AI, for example, is acting as a force multiplier, simplifying the work of human security analysts, increasing their flexibility in accessing data, and eliminating the lag between analysts in the field and their counterparts in the cyber operations center. Cloud computing, on the other hand, is bringing a massive shift in how the DHS manages its IT operations. Cloud computing is also contributing significantly to national defense and security strategies, helping reduce costs and enhance collaborative analysis and real-time information sharing.

With a comprehensive view of such innovative technologies and their wide applications in enhancing the security measures of the DHS, CIOReview has compiled a list of leading homeland security solution providers and consulting/service companies that are distinctively prominent in the field. With several innovative technological capabilities, these companies are constantly proving their mettle in the security landscape.

We present to you CIOReview’s “20 Most Promising Homeland Security Solution Providers – 2019,” and “10 Most Promising Homeland Security Consulting/Service Companies – 2019.”
