Fortinet to Support Army Infrastructure Goals by Providing Solutions Under ITES-SW2 Contract
Fortinet, a provider of integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, has been selected to support the enterprise infrastructure goals of the U.S. Army.
Under a new agreement, Fortinet will serve as a manufacturer on the Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 contract for the Army Computer Hardware Enterprise Software and Solutions.
Currently, the contract work is led by Carahsoft Technology, a government IT solutions provider, Fortinet said.
ITES-SW2 is an indefinite-delivery / indefinite-quantity contract vehicle that includes firm-fixed price terms. The deal provides commercial-off-the-shelf software products and services for the Department of Defense and other federal agencies, as well as system integrators.
Carahsoft is tasked with providing cybersecurity solutions from Fortinet to support the enterprise infrastructure requirements of various federal agencies.
Government agencies are working to boost cybersecurity because of the current adversary threat landscape, an expanding attack surface, and a growing cyber skills gap, according to Bob Fortna, president of Fortinet Federal.
The government needs partners that would help consolidate, integrate and automate cybersecurity infrastructures to remain focused on its missions and reduce the risk of cybersecurity threats, Fortna noted, adding that the Fortinet Security Fabric platform is designed to meet the security requirements of federal agencies.
The company’s platform includes automated policy enforcement that meets the government’s regulatory and compliance mandates, the Fortinet official said.
