Advanced Technology Company to Provide Software Licenses, Training and Services
ASHBURN, Va. – March 26, 2009 – Telos® Corporation today announced the U.S. Air Force’s 754th Electronic Systems Group has awarded the company a NETCENTS task order increase of nearly $6.7 million to provide software licenses, training classes and services in support of the Air Force Application Software Assurance Center of Excellence (ASACoE), located at Gunter Annex, Maxwell AFB, Ala. This brings the modified delivery order value to $15 million.
ASACoE ensures application security best practices are incorporated across the Air Force. The Air Force is meeting its mission of addressing cyber security by identifying critical vulnerabilities and securing Air Force applications. With the additional security provided by the center, the Air Force is better able to defend against application-level attacks, protecting sensitive information that in turn helps protect the nation.
Telos was awarded an initial task order to establish the center, which has a ceiling of $75 million, in October 2007. In 2008, ASACoE conducted over 125 software assurance assessments and identified numerous vulnerabilities. The assessments were conducted jointly with the AF program developers in order to make the assessment process part of the software development life-cycle. This effort supports the “build it in” framework being discussed across the application security community.
The period of performance runs through August 30, 2009.
Telos serves as a prime contractor on the five-year, $9 billion NETCENTS contract vehicle. NETCENTS, an Air Force indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, enables the federal government to purchase hardware and software, network-centric voice, video and data products and services, and telephony solutions from preferred contractors. NETCENTS provides a proven competitive edge for the federal government by reducing the time-to-market for critical networking and communications equipment and services.
