Raytheon|Websense wins $8M contract to support FBI network infrastructure

Raytheon|Websense has won an $8 million contract to provide the FBI secure access to multiple networks from a single workstation.

The project, called the Enclave Consolidation Initiative, will be the largest enterprise deployment of a multi-level security solution as a full software platform, Raytheon said in a release.

The FBI’s objective under ECI is to reduce their distributed global infrastructure by eliminating the unclassified infrastructure in most sites and move it fully to the data center, the company said.

This contract will support up to 55,000 named users and leverages the virtual desktop infrastructure containing Dell appliances and Nutanix hyper-converged software.
