Frost & Sullivan: Vendors to See GovCon Opportunities With DHS on Cyber, Border Security

US department of homeland securityFrost & Sullivan reports that cybersecurity and border security vendors may see potential contracting opportunities with the Department of Homeland Security following the department’s request for $51.95 billion in discretionary funds for 2016.

The company said Wednesday DHS seeks a 5.7 percent increase in budget compared to 2015 mainly to cover higher requests by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

A Frost & Sullivan analysis of the DHS proposed budget points to increased demand for stronger cyber measures, technologies that secure borders and ports of entry and immigration controls.

“[DHS] continues to grow both in manpower and mission requirements,” said John Hernandez, senior industry analyst for aerospace and defense at Frost & Sullivan.

“The security of U.S. critical infrastructure will demand that both government and commercial participants work together efficiently to identify solutions.”
