ECS Wins $430M ARCYBER Contract Recompete for Endpoint Security Solution Support

The U.S. Army Cyber Command has awarded Fairfax, Virginia-based company ECS a five-year, $430 million recompete contract for Army Endpoint Security Solution support.

Under the contract, ECS will continue providing managed service operations and continue developing enhanced functionality for AESS 2.0. The company will also expand the system’s endpoint detection and response capabilities and create a unified asset management system that will increase network device visibility and management.

AESS 2.0 will give the Army a platform that can detect, investigate and respond to threats across enterprise networks, ECS said Thursday.

The current iteration of AESS protects up to 800,000 endpoints across the Army’s classified and unclassified networks. The contractor provides traditional and advanced protections, threat detection, web controls and adaptive threat protection for AESS using its cloud-ready platform.

Mark Maglin, vice president of Department of Defense security at ECS, said the company is working with ARCYBER and the service’s Network Enterprise Technology Command to deliver a zero trust cybersecurity solution for AESS 2.0. He added that ECS uses an open architecture for its solution to enable continuous innovation and integration.

John Heneghan, president of ECS, shared that AESS 2.0 will be able to integrate with the Gabriel Nimbus data platform and other DOD platforms to enhance threat intelligence capabilities.

ECS, the federal government segment of ASGN, offers cybersecurity, IT modernization and artificial intelligence solutions.
