DISA Selects HP To Enhance Assessment Of Networks For Vulnerabilities

Program will provide analytics to enable the assessment of DoD enterprise networks and connected IT systems

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 20, 2012 – HP today announced that the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has selected HP Enterprise Services as the prime contractor for a program that will provide analytics to enable the assessment of U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) enterprise networks and connected IT systems against DoD standards, as well as any known system vulnerabilities.

The contract, awarded under DISA’s Encore II contract vehicle, is valued at up to approximately $39.8 million over seven years. The work performed will help enhance the DoD’s ability to detect IT system vulnerabilities, ensuring improved and efficient security.

Under the terms of the contract, the Assured Compliance Assessment Solution (ACAS) will be available for implementation across the DoD as the enterprise-wide compliance solution. HP will ensure strict compliance levels are met by providing implementation, training, help desk, and project management services to DISA.

“Providing robust cybersecurity protection and defenses to DISA and across the DoD enterprise is a top priority for DISA’s leadership,” said Betsy Hight, vice president, Cybersecurity Practice, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services. “HP’s solution is flexible, scalable, easy to deploy and maintain, and delivers the best overall value to the DoD community.”

To further enhance the client experience, HP provides integrated services for ACAS, which include the Tenable SecurityCenter product by Tenable Network Security, Inc., a leader in Unified Security Monitoring. This integrated solution provides DISA with instant access to its global footprint and technology expertise, while delivering a turnkey solution that will achieve all information security compliance initiatives.
