GovReady wins $1.1M DHS contract to make security more open

GovReadyThe U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced it has awarded startup GovReady a $1.1M certification and accreditation contract that will be critical to bringing an open source approach to security.

“GovReady will develop tools to help developers through the C&A process and in doing so open the door for more secure, compliant and quality software systems,” said DHS announcing the award.
