Booz Allen Hamilton has won a potential five-year, $40 million blanket purchase agreement to help the Defense Information Systems Agency use automated tools for its cybersecurity functions.
DISA seeks to improve both its cyber and risk management postures for the agency's Enterprise Mission Assurance Support Service. The eMASS system works to give users tools such as controls scorecard measurement, dashboard reports and risk management frameworks for IT and cyber functions.
EMASS also is designed to help establish process control mechanisms for who has authority to connect information systems to military networks.
Booz Allen's work will include lifecycle development and sustainment of eMASS, user training and integration with other cyber tools for automation.
