SRA International Inc. will help protect information technology systems from cyberattacks at the Transportation Security Administration under a task order worth up to $53 million.
Under the contract, SRA will lead a team that will monitor the agency’s IT systems and assess various security threats to those systems, company officials said Aug. 25. The work includes detection, analysis and coordinated response to threats and attacks, the officials said. The SRA-led team will provide the services via a security operations center.
SRA’s team includes InScope Solutions Inc., SE Solutions LLC and Verizon Business.
TSA, a component of the Homeland Security Department, is responsible for the security of the nation’s transportation systems. The task order was awarded through DHS' Enterprise Acquisition Gateway for Leading Edge Solutions contract.
Among the other deals SRA won in recent months is a $63 million contract to upgrade communications infrastructure for the Defense Department’s Joint Staff Information network.
SRA, of Fairfax, Va., ranks No. 26 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
