Elastic Gets $4.9 Million Expanded Homeland Security Deal

28 April, 2021 9:53 am

Elastic has received a $4.9 million, one-year contract from U.S. Customs and Border Protection that appears to add incremental capacity. The new contract, signed on March 4, 2021, is the follow-on to a $3.2 million contract for Elastic software that Customs and Border Protection awarded in March last year.

NOTE: While the March 2020 contract lists "Elastic software" in its description, the new contract is described only as "software" in government data. Nation Analytics is categorizing this award as an Elastic contract after a careful review of historical data and this specific CBP program. Notably, the period of performance for the new contract begins on March 6, 2021, which is the day after the completion date of the prior contract. Both contracts were awarded by the same funding office using the same contract vehicle (FIRSTSOURCE II), and both were awarded to reseller FCN, which lists a range of Elastic Stack services on its website, including ELK infrastructure (Deployment, Operations, and Management of Clusters), Data Collection, Data Enrichment, Data Shipping, Monitoring, Security, and ELK-based analytics. We have submitted a FOIA request to confirm the categorization and will post details when we receive the documents.

UPDATE (5/25/2021) - We received contracting documents from CBP that confirm this order was for Elastic software.
