Google (Nasdaq: GOOGL) has received a $2M other transaction agreement to help the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center assess and secure the military branch's information technology environment.

USAF said Friday the company will apply its experience in network security and scalability efforts under the OTA awarded as part of a broader enterprise IT-as-a-service initiative at the service branch.

The EITaaS program aims to reduce potential risks of technology products through a technical feasibility test and covers commercial end-user service, compute and store and network-as-a-service offerings.

Nextgov quoted Mike Daniels, vice president of the public sector division at Google's cloud business, as saying the company will support the Air Force in data protection and cybersecurity efforts.

“We continue to partner with the U.S. government, including the military, to solve key problems in areas like cybersecurity, logistics, transportation and planning and more," Daniels added.

Google also agreed to help the service branch measure airmen's digital experience.
