Hewlett Packard holds a position on a potential $6 billion blanket purchase agreement to provide tools and services for the Department of Homeland Security‘s cyber defense program.
HP is among 17 contractors who will compete for work over one base year and four option years under the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation, Tools and Continuous Monitoring as a Service contract vehicle, the company said Thursday.
The General Services Administration awarded the BPA.
“As threats to systems and data continue to evolve, it is important that government agencies have access to real-time situational awareness and decision criteria to ensure their continued ability to deliver citizen services and protect economic or national security,” said Betsy Hight, vice president of HP’s cybersecurity solutions group.
Under the contract, HP will compete to deliver sensors, mitigation and diagnostic tools to DHS as well as provide asset and configuration management services.
DHS intends for the program to help agencies resolve system vulnerabilities by adopting an unbroken risk analysis and identification cycle.
