AbleVets to Help Secure DHA IT Network; Wyatt Smith Comments

AbleVets has received a potential three-year, $64.5M task order to provide life cycle network protection services to the Defense Health Agency.

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center awarded the order, which contains one base year and two one-year options, under the U.S. Navy‘s SeaPort-e contract vehicle, AbleVets said Tuesday.

The company will assess cyber risks, analyze vulnerabilities and detect insider threats across the DHA’s IT network, as well as provide 24/7 support for the agency’s network security operations center.

Work will primarily take place in Charleston, S.C.

“SPAWARSYSCEN is all about making IT count for the warfighter and nation,” Wyatt Smith, founder and CEO of AbleVets, told ExecutiveBiz.

“This same mission is at the core of our longtime work protecting critical and complex environments at Veterans Affairs and other federal health agencies. We are pleased to extend our full lifecycle cyber services to support SPAWAR in ensuring operating effectiveness, reliability and readiness,” Smith added.

Chantilly, Va.-based AbleVets offers engineering and consulting services to federal clients in the cybersecurity, health IT and cloud computing areas.
