CACI will provide Lockheed Martin and DoD with qualified computer and audio-visual forensic experts and software engineers to research and design forensic tools, improve information technology enterprise support, and enhance cyber counterintelligence analysis.
According to John Mengucci, CACI Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, "CACI offers cyber solutions that will help Lockheed Martin and the Defense Cyber Crime Center speed the time it takes for forensic analysis of evidence, while sustaining the highest levels of quality, so that our clients can move quickly to address rapidly evolving challenges in protecting our nation's cyberspace operations and capabilities."
CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Dan Allen said, "CACI's ongoing investment in solutions for our cyber market segment continues to deliver results. Our 2011 acquisition of cybersecurity solutions provider Paradigm Holdings, Inc., for example, was instrumental in helping CACI secure this subcontract with Lockheed Martin and the Defense Cyber Crime Center. We continue to focus our cyberspace solutions on winning new business with new clients and expanding business with current clients who rely on us to meet emerging cyberspace requirements."
