In a press release on Tuesday, GSA said the service will include an Einstein Enclave (a computer network intrusion detection system) and the following components:
- Security operations center for agency protection
- Transport from the agencywide area network to the trusted Internet connections portal
- Redundant Internet access service

- Optional features to allow for agency unique requirements
The press release also says that the Internet security program under Networx allows agencies to comply with OMB's TIC initiative.
