DISA posts RFI for application containment, endpoint detection and response capabilities

On December 12, the Defense Information Systems Agency posted a request for information for application containment and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) capabilities (Solicitation Number: 831812054). Responses are due by 10:30 a.m. Eastern on January 2.

The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) / Development and Business Center (DBC), Endpoint Security Solutions (ESS) Branch (DBC/ID/ID3), is seeking information from industry to assist with the development and planning of a potential new requirement.

DISA, ESS Branch is seeking information from potential sources capable of providing application containment and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) capabilities that provide the necessary protection, detection, and response for an endpoint with the smallest overall footprint and lowest cost. Proposed solutions do not need to be similar to current solutions employed by the Government.

DISA is responsible for the transition to an enhanced ESS. This includes the identification, testing, and piloting of products that address the need for endpoint (excluding devices like phones and tablets) security and management solutions.

DISA is requesting responses for innovative products that support the containment and EDR capabilities of endpoint security. Any proposed solution must continue to be effective in disconnected, virtual, intermittent, and low bandwidth network conditions without a dependence upon regularly recurring (e.g. daily, weekly, monthly) content updates. The proposed products must be capable of scaling to millions of endpoints and provide information in near real-time.

The scope of this effort is to gather information on viable products that may be able to be part of the eventual ESS. DISA is requesting responses on specific products that meet capability requirements, instead of proposed solutions made up of many components.

Responders to this RFI will be considered for solution test and pilot activities.
