Market Connections congratulates Booz Allen Hamilton for being selected the first prime contractor of the next chapter of Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) government-wide Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program. This $621 million award is for a six-year task order to monitor and protect federal networks under the Dynamic and Evolving Federal Enterprise Network Defense (DEFEND) Program.
For two years, Booz Allen hast supported the DHS CDM efforts, helping 13 agencies deploy cybersecurity tools to better protect four million computers. CDM DEFEND expands capabilities of the CDM Program to include: cybersecurity coverage for cloud and mobile devices; automated capabilities for incident response and system compliance; enhanced protection of data at rest and in transit; and improved user management.
“The cybersecurity threats facing government agencies today are growing increasingly dynamic and sophisticated, making them more challenging to defend against,” said Senior Vice President and Leader of Booz Allen’s Civil cyber business, Brad Madeiry. “We are well positioned to help in this fight, applying experiences that our analysts, threat hunters and engineers gain by working on the cutting edge of cybersecurity. We are embedded in the nation’s most important missions and will continue to help drive toward innovative solutions like CDM to make the world a safer place in the face of ever-evolving cyber threats.”
