The funding DHS is providing through the BAA to solve cybersecurity issues will ultimately benefit agencies by delivering innovations that can address short-term cybersecurity issues, according to new Forrester research.

The results will benefit agencies by providing pragmatic solutions to cybersecurity issues. The private sector will be watching closely and the same solutions by extension will become a standard for broader commercial enterprises.
