GSA SmartBuy contracts awarded

Five companies chosen to provide cybersecurity software to agencies; sixth could be on its way

The General Services Administration’s SmartBuy program has awarded five contracts for agencies to use to purchase cybersecurity software.

Four of the awards are to resell BigFix’s Platform 7 software. The companies winning those awards were Autonomic Resources, Intelligent Decisions Inc., Merlin International and Patriot Technologies.

The fifth award went to Winvale Group to resell Gideon’s Secure Fusion software.

GSA said a sixth award may be made. The contracts are worth more than $20 million and can be used by federal and state and local government agencies, GSA said in a statement. The Homeland Security Department worked with GSA to make the awards.

The awards are blanket purchase agreements and are for cybersecurity services such as baseline configuration management, network mapping/path discovery and vulnerability management.

“GSA’s new suite of security solutions is aimed at protecting our IT infrastructure from cyber security incidents and other vulnerabilities, while providing maximum value for taxpayer dollars” Jim Williams, GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service commissioner, said in a statement.
