National Security Division Announces Agreement with Netcracker for Enhanced Security Protocols in Software Development: Netcracker Technology Corp. (NTC), a global software company serving the telecommunications industry, has agreed to  implement enhanced security protocols for software development, implementation, and its other services to clients, many of whom are part of the United States’s critical communications infrastructure, announced Dana Boente, Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Justice Department’s National Security Division and U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.  NTC is headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of NEC Corp.

The enhanced security protocols are designed to increase information security by regulating remote access to U.S. company networks and transfers of sensitive data.  The protocols are being implemented as part of a Non-Prosecution Agreement, which resolves a criminal investigation described in a statement of facts, both of which are accessible here and here.

“We are pleased Netcracker has agreed to invest in enhanced security protocols that will reduce the risk of unauthorized access to its clients’ sensitive data,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Boente.   “As threats to our critical infrastructure increase, especially from abroad, these protocols serve as a model for the kind of security that U.S. critical infrastructure should expect from the firms they use to develop, install, and maintain technology in their networks.”
