By Light Awarded $82M VA Contract

MCLEAN, Va. -- By Light Professional IT Services LLC (By Light) has been awarded the My HealtheVet (MHV) Development, Security and Operations (DevSecOps) contract by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Valued at $82M over five (5) years, this contract provides for the continued support and development of VA's Veteran-facing Electronic Health portal.

"Team By Light considers it an honor to continue our long and valued partnership with VA to provide innovative DevSecOps solutions to the MHV Program with a Scaled Agile and Digital Services Playbook approach," says Bill Sackewitz, By Light Senior VP for Digital Transformation. "Our team has invested heavily in DevSecOps, User Centered Design, and Lean Agile Product Delivery methods to hasten and improve value delivered to the customer. Our mission in By Light's Chief Strategy Office is to help our teams and our clients adopt new ways of working that lead to better user outcomes."

The MHV patient portal provides healthcare communications and coordination for millions of Veterans, caretakers, and providers. The MHV program is a nationwide initiative intended to improve the overall health of Veterans. It provides an eHealth portal, a secure environment where Veterans can view and manage their personal health record online and access health information, health assessments, and electronic services. Online health resources will enable and encourage patient/provider collaboration, as clinicians will be able to communicate with Veterans more easily.

The online environment will complement existing Veterans Health Administration (VHA) clinical business practices and be transformational in the way health care is delivered and managed. Like other VA systems MHV will eventually be integrated into VA.gov that will be accessible to Veterans from MHV, or other web portals as identified by the government.

"Our team has been supporting the development and expansion of MHV since 2012 and is dedicated to furthering the evolution of one of the U.S. Government's largest and most important technical programs benefiting those who have served," states Matt Bain, MHV Program Director at By Light. "We are very proud of our ten years of supporting MHV eHealth delivery capabilities and look forward to further deliver new and innovative solutions that support VA's Office of Connected Care ecosystem and improve the experience for Veterans and their care givers."

"We are happy to have By Light back and to continue the great work we have done together over the past decade," notes Greg Kirk, MHV Program Manager. "The MHV solution will continue to evolve with the DevSecOps contract, and the results will ultimately deliver better products and services faster to the Veterans."

MCLEAN, Va. -- The Army National Guard awarded a $2M follow-on contract to By Light Professional IT Services LLC (By Light) and its teaming partner Warhorse Training Solutions. Under this contract, By Light will provide 44 additional Recruiting Experiences to attract and educate young men and women about critical Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) while providing recruiters with valuable personnel leads. This contract also provides one year of maintenance and support for the existing 85 Recruiting Experiences fielded across the United States.

The new Recruiting Experiences consist of 44 interactive kiosks offering vocational and vehicle operator experiences. The first group of 22 kiosks features 4-in-1 Virtual Recruiter Touch Screens that allow players to engage in simulated vocational experiences, such as Air Traffic Controller, IT Specialist, Allied Trade Welder, or Combat Medic via intuitive touchscreen displays.

The second group of 4-in-1 Virtual Recruiter Vehicle Operator kiosks consists of 22 hands-on interactive Vehicle Operator Stations that invite players to sit and operate various vehicle controls to engage in four simulated experiences: Firefighter, Motor Transport Operator, Horizontal Construction Engineer, or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Operator.

The Recruiting Experiences include scoring and leaderboard features that promote a fun and competitive environment, helping to attract and retain groups of potential recruits while allowing the recruiter ample time to engage in one-on-one conversations with individuals. Additionally, the kiosks all have the capability to capture player contact information data that can easily be retrieved by recruiters using an improved and simple lead-generation data retrieval system.

"With U.S. Army and National Guard's average cost of $110 per lead, the ROI for these experiences is realized very quickly," says Cory McAndrew, General Manager for By Light's Port Orange, FL, facility.

Kennedy Intelligent Data Forms Partnership with Blueshift Cyber Security to Provide Data Security Services

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. -- With the threat of ransomware and cyber-attacks in general growing daily due to worldwide unrest and economic insecurity, Kennedy Intelligent Data (KID) has allied with Blueshift Cyber Security. This alliance allows KID to provide comprehensive and turnkey managed security services for companies like those in the auto industry that are at significant risk of data theft and financial harm to their customers.

Ransomware attacks have cost companies an untold amount of money, certainly in the hundreds of millions of dollars in recent years, as the attacks have shifted from stealing data to making fraudulent purchases and selling the information on the dark web to simply locking owners out of their systems. The attackers then require a ransom to get access to the data back. The attackers threaten to destroy it, sell it to other bad actors, or release it to the public, generating a public relations nightmare for the target of the attack.

"We have all seen the news reports of companies large and small dealing with these crippling cyber-attacks," said James Kennedy, CEO of KID. "Organizations of all types, especially those handling large quantities of client data, must do everything they can to protect that data, or they could face massive financial liabilities that cyber security insurance might not cover."

The approach of most cyber-security firms in the past has been one of prevention, stopping an attacker from getting into the network or endpoint and then compromising the data. That approach has proved to be unreliable against advanced cyber adversaries. Firms that are responsible for successfully protecting a company's IT infrastructure and data must now assume there will be a breach and focus on detecting and responding to intrusions as early as possible in the "cyber kill chain."

Kennedy has worked with the auto industry for decades as a consultant and is aware of just how much sensitive customer data the auto dealerships collect and often store as they sell and service vehicles for customers. But this risk looms large for any company that deals with customer data, including schools, hospitals and health organizations, retailers' brick and mortar or web-based of all kinds, and virtually any organization that collects data at all.

As the automation and ease of customization have grown, the cost of cyber-security measures, originally only affordable for the largest of companies, has come down to the point where services like Blueshift XDR™ are cost-effective for even small to medium size businesses.

"Partnering with KID allows Blueshift to further our mission of providing enterprise-grade cybersecurity protection to small and medium-sized businesses," said Brad Rowe, CEO of Blueshift Cybersecurity. "SMBs are often poorly equipped to detect and defend against a cyberattack. The Blueshift XDR platform fills the protection gap for SMBs. We quickly detect and automatically respond to cyber-threats before these inevitable intrusions evolve into full-scale cyber-attacks. Our clients can focus on running their business while we focus on defending it."

The Blueshift XDR™ service combines advanced deep packet inspection, comprehensive security event logging, and vulnerability detection to actively defend your entire IT infrastructure and devices, including remote workers (work from home). AI and machine learning combine with proprietary algorithms and filtering to distill voluminous alerts to a meaningful and manageable total. Blueshift's active on-premise sensors constantly monitor and automatically protect all assets. And everything is monitored around the clock by Blueshift's 24/7/365 SOC - manned by seasoned industry experts with context, tactics, and behavior to rapidly diagnose and resolve vital threats. Only Blueshift XDR combines enterprise-grade technology with human intervention to protect any sized company affordably via an easily deployed SaaS-based platform.

LANtelligence Becomes a Matrix Networks Company to Create a Connectivity First CX-Automation Powerhouse

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Matrix Networks announced its recent acquisition of LANtelligence to create a new business venture enabling a powerful combination of modern business technology. Having informally shared resources for more than 10 years, it just made sense for these two companies to come together in a more structured way.

While each provided communication solutions and top-notch customer service and support, they had different focal points. LANtelligence focuses on driving automation with an unrivaled CX practice. Most recently taking huge strides in the Intelligent Virtual Agent (IVA) space, revolutionizing contact center environments.

Matrix Networks built out an equally impressive practice that emphasizes managed connectivity solutions, essentially optimizing and simplifying business Internet and data infrastructure. Matrix Networks has also built out a strong practice around the protection of end users with modern end-point security solutions. While each organization is equally impressive on their own, together their ability to serve clients becomes much greater, allowing a true end-to-end solution.

Martin Tracey, CEO, LANtelligence, says that this acquisition creates a solution provider that is very rare today. Tracey shared It can deliver everything from enterprise communications and network infrastructure to connectivity strategies and more.

"Managed service providers are all Microsoft, software and the security specialists," he says. "Very few have any network and carrier and none have any automation and IVA/CCaaS. And, yes, you have companies such as Amazon and Google, but they are product-specific and can only do some of the automation. We can take on projects that would otherwise require two to four different companies working together to match what we can do as a single unit. That's pretty impressive."

Kyle Holmes, president, Matrix Networks says that he's equally thrilled to join forces with LANtelligence.

"LANtelligence adds a deep bench of contact center experts and clients with demand for modern security and networking solutions," he says. "Most importantly, our long-term relationship and shared core values allow us to quickly join forces and adhere to our mission statement: 'Delivering exceptional client experiences through innovative solutions made simple.'"

About Matrix Networks

With more than three decades of experience, Matrix Networks has developed a proven method for discovering, testing, deploying and supporting business technology solutions on which its clients can depend. Its close-knit team is passionate about delivering technology solutions that simplify IT projects and support.

Cole Engineering awarded $957M Cyber Training Contract

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Cole Engineering Services, Inc. (CESI), a By Light Company, has been awarded the Cyber Training, Readiness, Integration, Delivery and Enterprise Technology (Cyber TRIDENT) $957M Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. The Cyber TRIDENT contract is utilized by Department of Defense (DoD) organizations and other non-DoD agencies that have related cyber training needs.

The Cyber TRIDENT IDIQ provides the management, integration, maintenance, and evolution for the Persistent Cyber Training Environment (PCTE) platform and provides total system/subsystem acquisition lifecycle support for the PCTE system baseline. The PCTE provides a holistic, on-demand, standardized training platform that enables the end-to-end planning, preparation, execution, and assessment of training events for the Cyber Mission Force and the entire DoD Cyber Workforce.

"Team CESI is honored to be entrusted with providing an Integration Factory and Agile DevSecOps for the PCTE program and with leading the program's transition from its prototype phase into a true enterprise capability that provides training for the entire Joint Cyber Community," said Thomas Fransson, CESI Senior Vice President, Simulation Products and Services.

"Cyber is the most dynamic of the warfighting domains, and the DoD's cyber operators demand a training system that will rapidly respond to a changing landscape of threats, tools, and TTPs. Our Coalesce Framework is one core piece of the puzzle to rapidly deliver that capability by pulling from the best that industry has to offer without impeding the pace of development," said Stephen Lopez, Senior Program Manager. "We are immediately postured to expand PCTE's current capability set into a highly scalable enterprise platform that supports the throughput required for cyber training across all of the DoD, our allies, and other government agencies, while being adaptable to the emerging needs of the force. Through Cyber TRIDENT, PCTE will mature and expand to provide force readiness and mission rehearsal that enables the DoD to deliver cyberspace dominance."
