World Wide Technology, Inc. has won a multimillion-dollar cybersecurity contract to protect the Army’s 1.2 million endpoints and provide similar services to other federal agencies.
The first ever Production-Other Transaction Agreement was awarded by the Defense Innovation Unit Experimental, allowing WWT to provide cybersecurity endpoint management services to the Army and other federal agencies who elect to participate. The contract has a ceiling value of $750 million.
WWT will use Tanium to protect managed endpoints across the Army network and will also provide ongoing operation and maintenance of the Tanium deployment as a managed service.
“WWT is partnering with Taniun to provide the Army with instantaneous and complete visibility to endpoints across their network, which allows for the automated detection and remediation of threats in real time,” said Bryan Thomas, vice president of federal sales for WWT. “The combination of WWT’s integrated management services and Tanium’s single, integrated toolset will more effectively protect the Army’s endpoints against modern-day cyber threats.”
Rick Pina, chief technology adviser of federal for WWT, said the contract award could have taken several months to complete had the company approached it traditionally.
“Working with DIUx and Tanium to expedite a solution that meets the Army’s immediate needs exemplifies WWT’s commitment to provide revolutionary technology products, services and supply chain solutions for our customers around the globe,” he said.
