AT&T Approved Under Networxx

The General Services Administration and Homeland Security Department have approved the first government-wide provider of cybersecurity services under the Networx telecommunications contract. AT&T has received authority to operate its Managed Trusted IP Services (or MTIPS) program, a move that took almost a year to approve. Qwest, Sprint and Verizon also received awards to be MTIPS providers, but have not received the authority to operate on a governmentwide basis.

Conficker Worm is Alive and Well

The Department of Homeland Security is putting together a report on the global response to Conficker Worm attacks, while analysts warn, the Worm is still alive and well, though probably well hidden. Atlantic Monthly columnist Mark Bowden says, botnets like the Conficker Worm are evidence that worms and viruses are now being developed by those who have intricate knowledge of cryptography, a prospect that makes defending against attacks increasingly difficult.

GSA Platform Will Generate Ideas for Improving Government

A new online platform from the General Services Administration is helping federal agencies generate creative ideas for improving government while also improving openness and transparency, a White House directive. GSA officials say the Innovation Challenges Platform provides agencies with a way to lower the barriers for government's use of prizes and challenges by providing a platform at no cost that simplifies the public engagement process for both agencies and the public. It allows the public to suggest and discuss solutions to government problems. The platform is currently being used for AppsforHealthyKids.com. Director of new media and citizen engagement at the agency Bev Godwin says, there are a lot of different benefits that agencies can derive from such challenges, one of the most important being that they only pay for the solution.

New Device Gets a Grip on Stroke Treatment

Researchers with the National Science Foundation have developed a new tool for efficiently removing blood clots in the brain, the leading cause of strokes. The tool overcomes limitations in current emergency stroke treatments, potentially extending the time for a victim to get help. Engineered with support from the Foundation's Small Business Innovation Research program, Insera Therapeutics of California, developed the Stroke Help using an Transcatheter Retrieval device. It contains two primary components; an outer sheath for containing captured clots and an inner filament that houses the collapsible, five-millimeter-diameter, nickel-titanium mesh that grabs and filters the clots. The technology can be custom-fit for patients. Researchers say, such strokes are the leading cause of long-term disability in the U.S.
