InfoReliance-McAfee Team Wins $182M Army Managed Services Contract for Endpoint Security Platform

The U.S. Army has awarded a team of InfoReliance and McAfee a potential five-year, $182 million contract to provide managed cybersecurity technology platforms and services for the service branch.

The companies will field and operate the Army Endpoint Security System through a managed platform-as-a-service model to provide global situational awareness capabilities, InfoReliance said Thursday.

The AESS platform will work to increase the military branch’s endpoint protection, automate reporting metrics to the Defense Department’s Cyber Scorecard and reduce the service’s attack surface.

The Army awarded the competitively procured contract to the industry team through InfoReliance-owned SEWP Solutions joint venture under NASA’s Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement V government-wide acquisition contract.

Aaron Faulkner, chief strategy officer at InfoReliance, said the contract seeks to reflect the company’s efforts to implement and deliver McAfee platforms as a service in an effort to provide cyber defense capabilities to clients.

The managed platform will be hosted at Army-operated data centers and will work to provide threat detection and response functionality through McAfee’s Threat Intelligence Exchange designed to leverage the company’s Data Exchange Layer offering to facilitate threat information sharing.

McAfee and InfoReliance will respectively deliver and manage the AESS platform that will work to provide visibility of the Army’s approximately 1.4 million endpoint devices worldwide.
