Lockheed Martin holds a position on a potential $6 billion Department of Homeland Security blanket purchase agreement covering cybersecurity services and tools for DHS’ government network defense program.
The tools will work to scan the government’s information technology infrastructure for threats, implement security measures and audit network performance under DHS’ Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program, Lockheed said Wednesday.
Lockheed is one of 17 prime contractors on the potential $6 billion BPA, which contains one base year and four one-year options.
Vicki Schmanske, vice president of information technology and security solutions for Lockheed’s information systems and global solutions business, said Lockheed aims to expand its cybersecurity services for the federal government under the BPA.
Federal agencies and state, local, tribal and territorial governments can purchase the services under the General Service Administration‘s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center IT Schedule 70 vehicle.
