Pentagon Awards 12 Computer Security Contracts

It's good news that the Pentagon has awarded contracts to companies to protect unclassified data on its employees' laptops and other mobile computing devices. But the 12 contracts combined are worth $79 million at most, the Department of Defense said June 18, and none of the winners is a household name. MTM Technologies Inc.; Rocky Mountain Ram LLC; Carahsoft Technology Corp.; Spectrum Systems Inc.; SafeNet Inc.; Hi Tech Services Inc.; immixGroup Inc.; Autonomic Resources LLC; GTSI Corp.; GovBuys Inc.; Intelligent Decisions Inc.; and Merlin International are the winners, DoD said.

DoD, the Office of Management and Budget, and the U.S. General Services Administration awarded the contracts June 18 for blanket purchase agreements. The winners' products are Mobile Armor LLC's Data Armor; Safeboot NV's Safeboot Device Encryption; Information Security Corp.'s Secret Agent; SafeNet Inc.'s SafeNet ProtectDrive; Encryption Solutions Inc.'s Skylock At-Rest; Pointsec Mobile Technologies' Pointsec; SPYRUS Inc.'s Talisman/DS Data Security Suite; WinMagic Inc.'s SecureDoc; CREDANT Technologies Inc.'s CREDANTMobile Guardian; and GuardianEdge Technologies' GuardianEdge.

DoD's Enterprise Software Initiative and the U.S. Air Force's 754th Electronic Systems Group at Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base, Ala., will provide acquisition and contract support for the awards and administer the five-year contracts.
