McLean, Va. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) officials selected Booz Allen Hamilton for a $40 million single-award Blanket Purchase Agreement to help improve Department of Defense (DoD) cybersecurity and risk management using automated security solutions for the agency?s Enterprise Mission Assurance Support Service (eMASS).
Brad Medairy, senior vice president with Booz Allen, says “Today’s information security professionals can easily spend much of their day sorting through cyber incident alerts. New approaches, like automating incident response, are key to cyber resiliency and will enable DISA’s talented cyber warriors to shift from sorting anomalies to focusing on the most critical issues.”
Under contract, Booz Allen will provide full lifecycle development and sustainment of the eMASS system, including user training and enhanced integration with other cybersecurity tools for automation.
