US-based information technology company CACI International has secured a contract to support the US National Security Agency’s (NSA) signals intelligence and cybersecurity missions.

US-based information technology company CACI International has secured a contract to support the US National Security Agency’s (NSA) signals intelligence and cybersecurity missions.

Under the $447m five-year single-award contract, the company will provide process and mission technology for the missions.

CACI president and CEO John Mengucci said: “This award continues CACI’s decade-long relationship supporting the NSA’s cryptology, signals intelligence and network operations missions.

“CACI remains steadfastly committed to supporting our customer in executing their critical missions to keep our nation and its citizens safe.”

The NSA is a key member of the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which collects, processes and disseminates intelligence information from foreign electronic signals.

This information supports military operations, national foreign intelligence and counterintelligence purposes, and prevents rivals from gaining access to classified national security information.

In 2019, CACI partnered with BlackBerry to develop a solution to meet the NSA’s Commercial Solution for Classified (CSfC) programme requirements.

The SteelBox enterprise technology is the first secure and certified mobile communications app developed for use at both classified and unclassified levels.

The app allows government officials to send calls and text messages without fear of eavesdropping or data compromise. This helps to meet the needs of more than four million government-issued mobile phones covered by Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) requirements

Last July, CACI partnered with US-based technology company RigNet to deliver several upgrades to SteelBox.

Last week, CACI recorded a 5.9% increase in revenues to $1.55bn in the third quarter of the year ending 31 March, compared to $1.46bn in the same period a year prior.

The company currently employs around 23,000 people and is a member of the Fortune 1000 Largest Companies, Russell 1000 Index and S&P MidCap 400 Index.
