“The Department of Homeland Security on Monday awarded contracts to 17 vendors for tools and services to continuously monitor federal systems and networks for cyber risks.

Most large civilian agencies have agreed to use the $6 billion contract, which will provide diagnostic tools for agencies to quickly identify and fix the most serious cyber risks in their networks. The year-long contract has four option years, and DHS has committed $185 million this fiscal year to launch the first of three phases under the Continuous Diagnostic and Mitigation Program.”
