MetTel has received authorization from the General Services Administration and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency to help federal customers connect to a network in accordance with the government’s Trusted Internet Connection guidelines.
The company said Thursday it obtained authority to operate from the two agencies to offer a managed trusted internet protocol service through the GSA’s Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract vehicle after completion of the TIC evaluation and certification process.
“The constant attempt by cybercriminals to penetrate government websites is showing no sign of slowing down,” said Robert Dapkiewicz, senior vice president and general manager of MetTel’s federal business.
Dapkiewicz added that the company will work to help agencies secure networks.
MetTel designed its MTIPS offering with multiple tools to detect network intrusions, scan emails and report data to a security operations center in real time.
The New York-based telecommunication firm booked more than $1.3 billion in task orders under the EIS contract during 2020.
Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) serves as a security partner of MetTel in the governmentwide telecom program.
