Science Applications International Corp. has landed a potential eight-year, $36M prime contract from the government of Texas' Department of Information Resources to carry out cybersecurity services for network systems and data center infrastructure.
The company said Monday it will help augment the security posture of the department's Data Center Services program through the employment of cybersecurity technologies and practices.
SAIC will also optimize the department's investment in access management tools and update the data center’s identification and threat detection capacities through the contract.
“We are thrilled to expand SAIC's state and local portfolio into Texas, and to strengthen our multi-sourcing integration capabilities through the provision of cross-functional cybersecurity operations,“ said Bob Genter, executive vice president and general manager at SAIC's civilian markets customer group.
The contract has an initial period of four years and comes with four additional option years.
