NJVC is part of a team led by Leidos that won a spot on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security‘s potential $6 billion cybersecurity tools and services contract.
The Leidos team will provide continuous monitoring as a service to agencies in order to safeguard government networks and mobile devices under the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program, NJVC said Tuesday.
Jody Tedesco, NJVC president, said the company brings to the team more than 10 years of experience in helping defense and intelligence agencies address cybersecurity challenges.
“Not only is this contract a game changer for the government’s approach to cyber security, it is a milestone in the partnership between Leidos and NJVC,” Tedesco added.
Leidos was one of 17 prime contractors selected for the government-wide cyber defense initiative.
The General Services Administration is managing the contract for DHS and has committed $185 million to start the program.
