Defensive cyber operations accord signed between U.S. Army and Intelligent Waves

RESTON, Va. Information-technology provider Intelligent Waves has won an Eagle Shield Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) from the U.S. Army in support of Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO).

The U.S. Army's mission of maintaining cyberspace security and operations requires the integration of complementary systems and advanced technologies in support of what it calls support Cyber Protection Teams (CPTs) worldwide. The BPA -- with its five-year performance period -- addresses the Army's need for flexible, scalable, and responsive changes driven by the evolving threat landscape, technological innovations, and ever-changing availability of cyberspace solutions.

Under the terms of the contract, Intelligent Waves will support DCO programs and the Department of Defense (DoD) cyber community as it provides program management support services for cyber-related, nontraditional procurement activities.
