EDS, an HP Company, Awarded $111 Million Security Services Contract with Defense Department

HERNDON, Va., Dec. 15, 2008



EDS, an HP company, has been awarded a $111 million contract by the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to provide security readiness reviews for the Department of Defense (DoD).

These readiness reviews will support DISA’s mission to provide integrated, agency-wide protection and operational restoration capability to counter security threats.

Under the contract, EDS will work with the DoD’s Field Security Operations (FSO) division to conduct worldwide security reviews of DoD enterprises, enclaves, networks, systems and applications. EDS will send technical resources to client locations around the world to conduct security assessments on DoD operating systems, applications, databases and networks.

EDS also will deliver certification and accreditation support, provide independent evaluation of DoD security policies and conduct security assessments to evaluate the compatibility and interoperability of FSO systems located at various DISA FSO locations.

This agreement builds on a 13-year relationship between the DoD and EDS. EDS has provided DISA with a wide range of infrastructure services, hardware and software through the DISA I-Assure and ENCORE contract vehicles.

“By providing security readiness reviews, we will help DISA to counter security threats,” said Dennis Stolkey, senior vice president of U.S. Public Sector at EDS, an HP company. “This contract builds on a long-standing relationship between EDS and the agency. We look forward to continuing to provide the right people, processes and technology to help DISA align technology with the Defense Department’s needs into the future.”
