General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) has won a $14.7 million contract to provide a cybersecurity system to the Internal Revenue Service for the agency’s tax and revenue data asset networks.

The five-year contract calls on the company to develop and update the system with the goal of preventing network penetrations, malicious codes and data system intrusions, General Dynamics said Monday.

“To support tax administration, the IRS maintains sensitive and personal tax information, ” said Marcus Collier, senior vice president of health and civilian solutions for the General Dynamics Information Technology business unit.

General Dynamics will also review firewall security, manage hardware and software vulnerabilities and provide cybersecurity outreach services to the agency’s constituents.

The company has supported the IRS’ computer security incident response center for the past six years.
