Accenture Federal Services Secures $789M Navy Contract to Enhance Cybersecurity

The U.S. Navy has awarded Accenture Federal Services a $789 million contract to strengthen cybersecurity for the service’s global maritime forces.

The contract, which has an initial five-year base period with the potential to be extended for an additional five years, centers on supporting the Navy’s SHARKCAGE program, an initiative aimed at establishing a unified and continuous security perimeter across all Navy networks, Accenture Federal Services said.

Under the contract, Accenture Federal Services will implement and integrate commercial cybersecurity hardware and software solutions such as InformationTechnology-21, ONENet and the Navy/Marine Corps Intranet into the Navy’s Program Executive Office, Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence Program Manager, Warfare Cybersecurity.

The company’s responsibilities range from design and architecture to testing, production, installation and logistical support.

Rick Driggers, a 4×24 member and Accenture Federal Services’ managing director and cyber practice lead, said the solutions will enhance the Navy’s ability to safeguard vital defense assets and sensitive military data in an increasingly interconnected environment.
