Sev1tech Wins $40m Contract to Continue CBP Enterprise Network Architecture and Engineering Support Services
Sev1Tech has announced that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), an agency under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has selected the company to continue its Enterprise Network Architecture and Engineering Support Services (ENAESS) program in support of CBP’s Office of Information and Technology (OIT), Enterprise Networks and Technology Support Directorate (ENTSD), and Network Architecture and Engineering Division (NAED).
Sev1Tech was originally awarded CBP’s ENAESS prime contract in September 2015 and was charged with modernizing its IT infrastructure and engaging in initiatives to evaluate and implement emerging technologies, migrate to the cloud, support mobile platforms, and continually improve the performance, security, and availability of its network services. The success of the original contract helped Sev1Tech secure this recompete award and continue its partnership with CBP.
During the new five-year, $40 million contract, Sev1Tech will use IT service management tools, automation, and analytics to ensure CBP’s network and security infrastructure is supported and running 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year. Specifically, Sev1Tech’s team will provide network and security engineering, evaluation and testing, network performance monitoring, incident tracking, network troubleshooting, and performance analytics to protect, defend, and restore the confidentiality, integrity and availability of CBP mission-essential data communications and applications.
“We look forward to continuing our support of the CBP mission to help keep our nation secure by implementing critical enterprise-wide network architecture, network engineering, and management services” said Tara Berman, SVP of Sev1Tech’s DHS Business Unit. “This award is a testament to CBP’s confidence in our engineering capabilities. Our Network Architecture and Engineering Team remain committed to providing innovative solutions and exceptional services in support of our customer’s mission.”
