WASHINGTON. Enlighten IT Consulting, LLC., a subsidiary of Alion Science and Technology, a company that designs and delivers complex engineering solutions for Defense and Intelligence agencies, announced that it won the U.S. Air Force LevelUP Cloud Services Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA).
This is a multiple-award agreement and a performance period of up to five years. According to the company, the effort will support the Air Force's LevelUP program, which developed the Unified Platform tool to aggregate cybersecurity incident data into a single platform with visibility across the service, as well as with the other military branches.
Officials also state that the cloud services acquired through this contract will be utilized as a DevSecOps platform in which the Joint Forces can build, test, and deploy new capabilities via a Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipeline. The Alion team will be supporting across Public, NIPRNet, SIPRNet, and JWICS cloud environments, which are networks that were developed to prevent hackers from committing cyber attacks.
