The Defense Information Systems Agency has awarded a $6.9 million task order to Science Applications International Corp. to provide a Defense-wide, anti-spyware tool.
SAIC, partnering with Computer Associates, will provide its Spyware Detection, Eradication and Protection (SDEP) solution. Defense system administrators and cybersecurity workers'including the intelligence agencies, the National Guard and Reserves'all will use the tool.
The contract calls for around-the-clock, virtual on-demand training, as well as conventional classroom training.
SAIC will work with DISA to implement a 120-day pilot of SDEP at a limited number of Defense locations to fine-tune training, deployment and operational concepts. The Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Joint Forces Command and the Coast Guard are participating in the pilot.
