Description

CEH are continually seeking to improve the security of our IT infrastructure. As part of this ongoing programme we are looking to remove administrator privileges from desktop user accounts and to further control the installation of applications and executable programs to prevent installation of ‘zero day’ malware and other unwanted software. CEH staff use a large number of applications ranging from standard office suites to specialist scientific software and user compiled executables. A method of restricting user access to install applications while avoiding a large support overhead is required. In order to maintain these effectively within existing IT support staff numbers an automated privilege management and application control system is sought. The Privilege management and Application Control software must provide granular policies for different user roles such as scientists, developers, administration and support staff and allow interactive control for ‘unknown’ and bespoke software. CEH need to remove administrator privileges from desktop user accounts and to further control the installation of applications and executable programs to prevent installation of ‘zero day’ malware and other unwanted software. In order to achieve this while maintaining the large number of standard and bespoke applications in use within CEH without requiring a significant increase in IT support effort an automated privilege management and application control system is sought. The Privilege management and Application Control software must provide granular policies for different user roles such as scientists, developers, administration and support staff and allow interactive control for ‘unknown’ and bespoke software. For this project CEH requires security platform licences for its end points (predominantly Windows 7, with very small numbers of Linux and Mac), professional services to assist with installation and configuration at each of 4 CEH sites, as well as training for CEH staff to implement the technology security platform. Please also provide pricing for future year’s subscriptions and support. For possible extensions into years 2 and 3, the following will be required on an annual basis for these subsequent years: • 1 year subscription licence to the security platform per Windows desktop/laptop with standard maintenance & support – quantity 1350 • 1 year Subscription license to the security platform per Mac desktop/laptop with standard maintenance & support – quantity 10 • 1 year Subscription license to the security platform per Linux desktop/laptop with standard maintenance & support – quantity 10 Initial implementation to be complete by end of March 2016. The contract Term to state March 2016 to March 2017 with the option to extend annually for a further two years on a 1 + 1 year basis until March 2019. There is no guarantee that this contract will be extended at each contract break point
