Intel Security company McAfee has awarded Govplace the Federal Solution Provider of the Year Award to recognize the information technology service delivery company’s three-digit growth in 2014.

Reston-based Govplace, which uses McAfee technology to provide cybersecurity packages to its clients, said Monday it registered revenue gains, up 250 percent from year-ago figures.

Govplace’s work includes its role as security products subcontractor to Knowledge Consulting Group’s continuous diagnostics and mitigation project for the Department of Homeland Security.
