CGI Federal Inc. (CGI) today announced it was awarded a position on a new Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to provide cyber security continuous diagnostic and mitigation tools, as well as Continuous Monitoring as a Service (CMaaS) for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The $6 billion multiple-award contract vehicle has a five-year work period.
CGI will provide IT services and tools to implement DHS’s Continuous Diagnostic and Mitigation (CDM) program.
“In today’s world of shared government networks, Continuous Monitoring as a Service represents an important and timely piece of the security puzzle for federal government agency clients,” said Donna Ryan, president of CGI Federal. “In a time when cyber attacks are a true social and economic threat, government agencies need to be assured that their security posture is not just continuously monitored but adapting to ever-changing risks.”
CGI will also provide clients with Configuration Management Database for enhanced hardware and software management; malware detection and prevention; threat detection and risk mitigation and automated vulnerability mitigation and remediation.
The CDM program is designed to defend public sector IT networks from cyber threats by providing continuous monitoring sensors, diagnosis, mitigation tools and CMaaS to strengthen the security posture of government networks.
