Raytheon has won a $1 billion contract from the US department of Homeland Security to Provide Mission Critical Cybersecurity Solutions.
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has selected Raytheon to be the prime contractor and systems integrator for the agency's Network Security Deployment (NSD) Division.
NSD is responsible for the National Cybersecurity Protection System (NCPS), a system providing the vital infrastructure that assists more than 100 federal civilian government agencies with the protection of their networks against advanced cyber threats, the company announced Monday.
Raytheon will lead a team providing full lifecycle development and sustainment support. The period of performance under this contract is five years, with the ability to extend some orders for up to an additional 24 months.
"Today's cyber threats are increasingly pervasive and serious, and our government and private sector institutions require the best protection possible," said Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services.
"Raytheon has invested over $3.5 billion in recent years to build our cybersecurity capabilities, and we're looking forward to bringing the very best and most innovative solutions to the Department of Homeland Security." Wajsgras added.
"Cybersecurity incidents have increased an average of 66 percent a year worldwide between 2009 and 2014." Wajsgras said.
The scope for this contract is to provide NPPD with design, development, and operations/maintenance services in support of the NCPS.
