The Pentagon’s Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) awarded RedSeal a $33.8 million multi-year contract to use its network modeling and risk scoring platform to model and continuously monitor the Joint Regional Security Stacks (JRSS), the company said Tuesday.
DISA plans for the RedSeal services to provide visibility into network segmentation and measure overall resiliency to deliver risk-based situational awareness.
The JRSS is a set of equipment meant to upgrade a secure, consolidated and collaborative Joint Information Environment (JIE) across DoD. JRSS tools perform firewall functions, intrusion detection and prevention, enterprise management, virtual routing and forwarding and provide network security capabilities.
The program will also centralize the security of DISA’s networks into regional architectures that are more secure than locally distributed ones spread across individual bases, camps, posts, and stations.
As a result of this contract, DISA will provide RedSeal’s modeling and risk scoring platform to all Army networks, Air Force boundary networks, and several other Combatant Command networks.
“DISA chose RedSeal because our platform will help them more clearly manage and measure their cyber strategies and investments. This selection by DISA underscores the value RedSeal delivers to military and federal organizations, as well as enterprises at-large. As a company, we’re proud to help DISA’s teams be more resilient by being better prepared to sustain critical operations and protect high-value assets,” Ray Rothrock, chairman and CEO of RedSeal, said in a statement.
“From Fort Meade, the Joint Management Program monitors, manages and controls DoD digital operations all over the world. They need effective metrics to understand the real-time health of the global network, and RedSeal proved to be the best choice for ensuring its resilience under relentless probing and attacks,” Kimberly Baker, vice president and general manager of RedSeal’s public sector, added.
