SAIC, Computer Associates to share DISA spyware work

Science Applications International Corp. and Computer Associates International Inc. won a $6.9 million task order from the Defense Information Systems Agency for an enterprisewide, anti-spyware solution.

Systems administrators and cybersecurity personnel throughout the Defense Department, related intelligence agencies and the National Guard and Reserve will use the solution, called Spyware Detection Eradication and Protection. The solution also offers a stand-alone version for use on personal computers of department employees.

The task order was awarded under DISA's I-Assure contract, a multiple-award contract that provides engineering product services and technical support for unified, fully integrated systems security solutions for the Defense Department.

Based in Arlington, Va., DISA is a combat support agency that provides global net-centric solutions for the country's soldiers and organizations that support them.

Before the solution is deployed throughout the department, a 120-day test run of the tool will take place in a few Defense Department locations to work out training, deployment and operational issues. The Joint Forces Command, the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and the Coast Guard are participating in this pilot phase.
