RigNet has been awarded a five-year U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) for Information Technology Professional Services contract. This contract includes three 5-year renewal periods for a potential contract term of 20 years. Federal, state, and local governments will be able to access RigNet’s global networking solutions, enhanced cybersecurity, military-grade hardware encryption and machine learning applications.

In addition, RigNet has also instituted the 171 practices to meet Level 5 under the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), which is designed to assure the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) that a federal contractor can protect controlled unclassified information at a level commensurate with the risk.

“Even unclassified government communications are sensitive,” said retired U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Jamie Barnett, RigNet’s senior vice president for Government Services. “In addition to the CMMC, RigNet’s encryption technology, Cyphre, has been validated for FIPS 140-2, further demonstrating RigNet’s best-in-class cybersecurity posture by providing our clients ultra secure data and networking solutions while maintaining high-speeds and reducing overhead on satellite networks.”
