DHS Awards 17 Spots on Potential $6B Cyber Contract

CybersecuritySeventeen companies have won positions on a potential $6 billion Department of Homeland Security contract covering cybersecurity products and services, Federal News Radio reported Monday.

Jason Miller writes the General Services Administration is responsible for the continuous monitoring and diagnostics contract and will charge a 2-percent fee for usage.

Federal, state, local and tribal governments can use the contract to acquire tools, hardware and software for implementing continuous-monitoring-as-a-service, Miller reports.

Citing a GSA statement, Miller writes the government aims to move away from historical compliance reporting and adopt a more real-time structure for combating cyber threats.

The government also wants to correlate and analyze security-related information across the federal enterprise by using automated monitoring tools, according to the report.
