CSRA’s (NYSE: CSRA) SRA International subsidiary has received a potential five-year, $163 million task order to provide integration support for the Defense Information Systems Agency’s Endpoint Security Solutions.
CSRA said Wednesday it will collaborate with Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) and McAfee through SRA to help DISA build up its cyber strategy and ESS capabilities as well as implement containment, hardening and other cybersecurity platforms across the Defense Department enterprise.
DISA’s ESS platform works to ensure the availability and confidentiality of the agency’s classified and unclassified networks used to support U.S. warfighters.
The task order awarded through the General Services Administration’s Alliant governmentwide acquisition contract has a one-year base period and four option years and includes systems engineering and technical support for DoD’s endpoint devices.
CSRA will serve as a primary integrator for DISA’s more than 3 million endpoint systems and assist the agency to operate and protect the DoD Information Network from potential cyber attacks.
Ken Deutsch, an executive vice president and head of defense group at CSRA, said the contract seeks to reflect the company’s partnership and support for DISA in delivering next-generation technology platforms to warfighters.
The task order came five months after DISA awarded CSRA a potential $498 million contract to provide commercial infrastructure services for the milCloud 2.0 private cloud platform.
