KBR (NYSE: KBR) has won a four-year, $216M task order via the U.S. Navy's SeaPort Next Generation contract vehicle to provide cybersecurity services to the Defense Health Agency.

The company said Monday it will support DHA's assessment and authorization division as well as help Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic create frameworks for cybersecurity and risk management.

KBR will also help prepare an enterprise mission support service authorization package, discuss independent verification results and support the integration of federal information technology policies.

“We are proud to continue delivering our cybersecurity solutions to DHA as it ensures service members and their loved ones receive high-quality health services," said Byron Bright, president of KBR's U.S. government solutions business.

The Houston-based firm secured a position on the 10-year, $50B Seaport-NxG contract in late 2018 and also held a spot on the predecessor vehicle known as SeaPort Enhanced.
