CYBERCOM Awards Clear Ridge Defense Cybersecurity Support Prime Contract
Clear Ridge Defense said it has secured a potential $25 million prime contract from U.S. Cyber Command for cyber capabilities support services.
CRD will provide red team operations, cyberthreat emulation, infrastructure engineering, exercise scenario development, adversarial threat assessment, training and other support services to CYBERCOM’s Cyber Adversary Tactics Office.Work on the contract ensures that cyber mission forces can combat advanced and persistent threats against the United States and its allies, CRD said Thursday.
The contract builds on CYBERCOM’s efforts to enhance its cybersecurity capabilities.
In November, the combatant command awarded Parsons a potential five-year, $91 million prime contract to support the J9 Program Executive Office Cyber and the Joint Cyber Warfighting Architecture Integration Office. Parsons was tasked with delivering software-enabled systems, sensors and tools for full-spectrum cyber operations.
In May, CYBERCOM announced plans to build the next generation of JCWA to meet warfighters’ evolving needs. According to Michael Clark, director for cyber acquisition and technology at the combatant command, JCWA 2.0 will be integrated into a warfighting platform, a departure from the original JCWA, which he said was merely a set of capabilities.
