Leidos and Silicon Valley-based cyber company Fortinet have forged a partnership to offer managed security services in the federal and commercial communities.
Both companies participate in the General Services Administration’s Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Services program that seeks to help agencies connect to public Internet and other external networks in compliant with the Office of Management and Budget’s Trusted Internet Connection initiative.
This teaming arrangement calls on Leidos to act as an expert service provider for Fortinet’s FortiSIEM security suite available for federal government and commercial entities.
The companies intend to make available a unified security information and event monitoring offering with analytics functions to help users manage network security, performance and compliance.
