ECS Federal will develop a dashboard for federal agencies to view cybersecurity data and risk exposure reports under a potential six-year, $276M task order from the Department of Homeland Security.

The company said Monday it will help DHS deploy the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Dashboard Ecosystem and incorporate data ingest and visualization, search performance and indexing tools into the platform.

The ecosystem is intended to offer cyber analytics via business and artificial intelligence.

ECS added it will include a threat intelligence technology in the ecosystem to deploy security orchestration automation and response tools, facilitate threat indicator sharing across the government and integrate a risk-scoring algorithm.

“We are thrilled by DHS’ decision to select ECS to lead and innovate this program and capability,” said George Wilson, president of ECS and a 2019 Wash100 winner.

He added the company's leaders, architects, engineers and developers are committed to supporting the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency mission.

DHS issued the task order under the General Services Administration's Alliant 2 contract.
