IronNet added to Carahsoft ITES-SW2 contract
McLean, VA-based IronNet Cybersecurity Inc announced on May 11 that it has been named a manufacturer on the Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2) contract for the U.S. Army Computer Hardware Enterprise Software and Solutions (CHESS). This contract is held by Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider, and is effective through August 30, 2025.
ITES-SW2 is a firm-fixed price, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract vehicle for commercial off-the-shelf software products and related services and hardware with a USD$13 billion ceiling value. The contract has no fees, and ordering is open to all Army, DoD and Federal agencies and authorized systems integrators on a worldwide basis. Under this contract, Carahsoft provides software, software maintenance, and ancillary services and hardware from IronNet to support Federal agencies’ enterprise infrastructure and cybersecurity goals.
GEN (Ret.) Keith Alexander, IronNet founder and co-CEO, said, “During my time at NSA and CyberCommand, I saw firsthand how difficult it was to defend against cyber attacks that we had limited visibility into. I’m honored that IronNet is entrusted to help change that for government agencies and contractors. Our Collective Defense platform will bring better information sharing, faster detection, and a stronger defense against the destructive cyber attacks that the U.S. and countries around the world are battling every day.”
Based on AI-powered behavioral analytics, IronNet’s Collective Defense platform detects unknown cyber threats that signature-based tools often miss and shares the related threat intelligence in real time within a secure community ecosystem. Community members — comprising an industry, supply chain, or other related grouping of organizations — share and receive anonymized threat data to create a radar-like view of potential incoming attacks so member organizations can defend more proactively.
