Army plans network fortification

Monday, 5 July 2004, 1:29 PM EST

Army officials expect to spend millions of dollars as early as next year to fortify networks that are increasingly becoming the targets of cyberattacks, according to service and industry officials.

Budget constraints are hampering funding efforts, but the Army is in dire need of new security products, said industry officials familiar with the situation. They cite an instance in August 2003 and another in January in which hackers attacked systems at an important U.S. installation.
