ECS, a leader in advanced technology, science, and digital transformation solutions, has been awarded a five-year contract by the U.S. Army valued at $49 million.

This project aligns with the Army’s larger network transformation strategy of providing units across the globe with a simple-to-use, expeditionary, mobile, hardened tactical network. To that end, ECS will provide software licensing, engineering services, training, and laboratory services to support the accreditation, integration, testing, and fielding of security software products.

“We are looking forward to partnering with the Army in modernizing and strengthening its tactical networks,” said John Heneghan, president of ECS. “ECS currently supports the deployment of the Army Endpoint Security Solutions (AESS) program, integrating, testing, accrediting, and fielding solutions that protect up to 800,000 endpoints. This wealth of experience will help inform our low-risk methodology in support of the Army’s network transformation initiative.”

“With this contract award, ECS has the opportunity to help the Army achieve multiple mission objectives while advancing the greater strategy of transforming its tactical networks,” said Mark Maglin, vice president of Department of Defense (DoD) Cybersecurity at ECS. “Using our experience delivering the AESS for the enterprise, we are ready to leverage our expertise across software engineering and cybersecurity disciplines to help the Army achieve a unified network, increased visibility, and an improved cybersecurity posture.”
