Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $939,792)

Under this award, the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services (MD DPSCS) will use funds to acquire a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution that would help improve its network port security. This project will protect the integrity of their network systems and assist in their efforts to maintain and provide safe and secure access of criminal records to local, state and federal authorities. Additionally, the COTS product that the MD DPSCS will acquire will give the MD DPSCS the ability to monitor every single port in the enterprise, centralize port security, and control any device that is plugged into their network.
