Military automates security reviews of its Web sites

Thursday, 19 February 2004, 12:24 AM EST

Ottawa-based Coast Software Inc. today announced that it has struck a deal with the Pentagon to provide the military with its Web Quality Central software to automatically scrub Defense Department Web sites for sensitive operational information and ensure adherence to privacy policies.

The U.S. Army, Air Force and Navy have deployed Coast's software in an effort to adhere to both internal Defense Department guidelines on the management of Web content as well as portions of the e-Government Act of 2002. That law requires federal agencies to adhere to Office of Management and Budget guidelines on protecting the privacy rights of Web site visitors.

Pentagon officials declined to comment on the agreement.
