ManTech gets $110M U.S. cyber contract for CDM and access control
Herndon, Va.-based ManTech International has been awarded two task orders totaling $110 million to provide governmentwide cybersecurity services for the Department of Homeland Security.
In a press release this week, the company said the orders — one under DHS’s Continuous Diagnostics and Monitoring program and the other as part of the 2015 Cyber Sprint and the White House’s Cybersecurity Strategy and Implementation Plan — were worth $25 million and $85 million respectively.
The CDM order was issued by the General Services Administration’s Federal Acquisition Service on the Alliant government-wide contract vehicle. It covers continuous monitoring as a service, or CMaaS, and goes for one year initially, with option years available for the following two years.
In its release, ManTech says the company ‘will provide CDM services to multiple federal agencies, in addition to consolidated reporting to the Federal CDM Dashboard, leveraging a sophisticated cloud solution.’
Ultimately, the company says it will deliver CDM to 44 U.S. agencies, ‘providing the government with unparalleled visibility into the security of federal networks.’
The second order, worth $85 million, runs for two years and is for privileged access management — technology and processes that control who has the most powerful access to federal computer networks. It was awarded under the CDM CMaaS blanket purchase agreement and the GSA IT Schedule 70 contract.
‘Controlling access to critical information and establishing a secure cloud environment is essential for protecting our federal agencies from insider and emerging threats,’ said L. William Varner, president of ManTech’s Mission, Cyber and Intelligence Solutions Group.
The firm did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
