McAfee joins Pentagon's ESI program to accelerate military's use of
commercial software, helping defense agencies centralize and expand
McAfee deployments

McAfee®, the device to cloud cybersecurity company, announces that the
U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded three companies spots on a
blanket purchase agreement (BPA) worth up to $551 million over five
years to provide McAfee products across the DoD. EC America (immixGroup,
an Arrow Company), DLT Solutions and International Systems Marketing
(ISM) will partner with McAfee to fulfill the enterprise-wide BPA
through DoD's Enterprise Software Initiative (ESI) program.

The agreement provides the most current, commercially available McAfee
products, maintenance and support for DoD, intelligence community, and
Coast Guard activities worldwide. The McAfee offerings available through
the BPA include data protection and encryption, database security,
endpoint protection, network security, security analytics, security
management, server security, security information and event management
(SIEM), web security, and all McAfee warranty and support services.

"McAfee's selection for the ESI program underscores the Pentagon's
strategic focus on security from the device all the way to the cloud and
offers a streamlined path to acquire McAfee solutions," said Alex
Chapin, McAfee's executive director, DoD and Intelligence Community.
"This new award builds on our track record with the DoD as the
department transitions to the latest McAfee tools and technologies, and
we look forward to working with our partners to continue meeting DoD's
evolving needs."

The DoD ESI is an official DoD initiative sponsored by the DoD Chief
Information Officer to lead in establishing and managing enterprise
commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) IT agreements, assets and policies. It
lowers the total cost of ownership across the DoD, Coast Guard and
Intelligence Communities for commercial software, IT hardware and
services.
