On July 15, 2019, The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) awarded the five-year Assured Compliance Assessment Solution (ACAS) contract to Foxhole Technology, the small business leader in cyber security, vulnerability management, continuous network monitoring, advanced analytics and context-aware security. ACAS is an integrated software solution providing automated network vulnerability scanning, configuration assessment, and network discovery-highlighted by a suite of products to include the Security Center, Nessus Scanner and the Nessus Network Monitor. This program provides a critical capability to ensuring overall DoD cyber health. Foxhole Technology and partner, Perspecta Enterprise Solutions, will continue to assess U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) enterprise networks and connected IT systems against DoD standards, as well identify any known system vulnerabilities
ACAS expands Foxhole Technology’s DISA Enterprise Cyber Security Prime Portfolio, which currently includes the Continuous Monitoring and Risk Scoring (CMRS) program, the Secure Configuration Management Program (SCM) and the System Information and Event Management Program (SIEM) under DISA’s Cyber Development Directorate (CD). ACAS and SCM provide critical data feeds that assess compliance and vulnerabilities across reporting agencies, and are rolled up into CMRS to provide enhanced Security reporting to the DoD CIO. ACAS is also a critical component used to assess vulnerabilities as part of the Cyber Security Readiness Inspections (CCRIs) mandated by USCYBERCOM and is used to quickly and accurately assess the security posture of DoD enterprise networks.
Through ACAS, we can detect assets and vulnerabilities using several sensors. As an integrated software solution, ACAS has the ability to scale to an unlimited number of locations. It can be deployed without difficulty via download to all DOD agencies – without the need to procure and install appliance devices. Further, the product suite generates the required reports and data, with a centralized console.
As DISA moves to ACAS 2.0, Foxhole Technology will support sustainment and training for ACAS, design, architecture, implementation and integration of ACAS 2.0 with current DISA technologies, as well as, support expanded integration of the tool across SCM and CMRS. Foxhole Technology, and partner, Perspecta Enterprise Solutions, stand ready to provide continued ACAS support to the DoD Enterprise from sustainment of the current suite of ACAS software through the proposed transition to next-gen, cyber security solutions.
