MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
In today's digital world, it's an imperative for the U.S. military to
have access to mission-critical information anywhere around the globe.
Information Systems Agency (DISA) is responsible for ensuring that
the Department of Defense (DoD) has access to the best in class command
and control, and information-sharing capabilities required to keep U.S.
warfighters, national leaders and coalition partners safe. In support of
this mission, DISA has awarded Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) a $40
million single-award Blanket Purchase Agreement to help improve DoD
cyber security and risk management using automated security solutions
for the agency's Enterprise
Mission Assurance Support Service (eMASS).
"We are honored to be selected as the government's trusted partner for
this important DoD cyber security mission," said Brad Medairy, senior
vice president with Booz Allen. "Today's information security
professionals can easily spend much of their day sorting through cyber
incident alerts. New approaches, like automating incident response, are
key to cyber resiliency and will enable DISA's talented cyber warriors
to shift from sorting anomalies to focusing on the most critical issues."
Booz Allen will provide full lifecycle development and sustainment of
the eMASS system, including user training and enhanced integration with
other cyber security tools for state-of-the-art automation. To learn
