U.S. Defense Department Offers McAfee Exclusive Agreement

The U.S. Defense Department is expanding its exclusive arrangement with McAfee, whose security software is at the heart of the military’s cybersecurity efforts. McAfee has received a $9.7 million order to deploy Host Based Security System on the Air Force’s portion of the Defense Department’s classified network, known as the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet.) McAfee and its partner Northrop Grumman have already installed the HBSS software suite on the Air Force’s Non-Classified Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet). McAfee says it deployed the Department of Defense’s HBSS solution on more than 500,000 hosts in a six-month period for the Air Force’s NIPRNet contract.
