McLean, Va. — Reducing the Federal Government’s on-going exposure to cyber attacks requires sophisticated cybersecurity tools, services, and solutions. To enhance the visibility of risks and maintain an active defense against these threats, DHS – in partnership with the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM) – established the CDM Program in 2012 to provide continuous diagnostic tools and integration services for over 60 Federal Civilian Agencies. In 2015, Booz Allen (NYSE: BAH) was the first integrator to partner with DHS under the ambitious CDM Program, across multiple contracts. In its first phase, Booz Allen designed, integrated, and deployed a data-driven cybersecurity stack that provided 13 participating Agencies with state-of-the-art visibility into their networks. Booz Allen’s CDM solution (inclusive of Group D and the previously awarded Group B task order), secures nearly 80 percent of the .gov enterprise, including 4.1 million network addressable devices, more than 1.75 million users, over 19,700 sites, and 89 individual Federal organizations.
FEDSIM and DHS have selected Booz Allen as the prime contractor to continue enhancing the cybersecurity capabilities of Federal Agencies with a $1.03 billion, six-year task order. The scope of work for this Group D task order will enhance CDM capabilities for six (6) Agencies, including GSA, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Social Security Administration (SSA), Department of the Treasury (Treasury), and the United States Postal Service (USPS).
