CSRA Lands $114M Task Order to Help Secure Pentagon’s IT Networks

CSRACSRA (NYSE: CSRA) has received a potential $114 million task order to develop and implement an in-depth strategy for the Defense Department to identify and neutralize hostile cyber network activity at the Pentagon.

The company said Thursday it also seeks to leverage a range of tactics, procedures and techniques to help DoD block, detect and respond to incidents that affect government networks.

CSRA will also cooperate with the U.S. Cyber Command as well as various agencies to provide information about security threats and incidents.

“While having the right technology in place is a critical element of a successful cybersecurity plan, we’ve found that developing and deploying a comprehensive network strategy, and collaborating with other parts of the government, is equally as important and needed to defend an organization’s IT system effectively, ” said Ken Deutsch, executive vice president of CSRA’s defense group.

The company received the task order through DoD’s Joint Service Provider program under the Chief Information Officer–Solutions and Partners 3 contract vehicle.

The order’s period of performance will run for four and a half years.
