Science Applications International Corp. will aim to help the Department of Homeland Security bolster the cybersecurity posture of federal civilian “.gov” networks and protect cyber infrastructure under a potential five-year, $6 billion contract.

SAIC is one of 17 awardees that will compete to provide DHS tools and services under the blanket purchase agreement awarded by the General Services Administration, the company said Monday.

Julie Taylor, SAIC senior vice president and national security operations manager, said the company will work to help DHS use risk-based analytics to prioritize threats.

Federal agencies and state, local, tribal and territorial governments can acquire tools and services under the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation, Tools and Continuous Monitoring as a Service contract.

DHS intends to help participating agencies automate their existing continuous network monitoring systems, correlate and analyze security-related information and use risk-based decision making at the agency and federal enterprise level.
