Experience House of Congress – Cyber Security Support Services to Present Summary Spearhead the design, implementation and O&M of antivirus, firewall and IPS solutions for more than 12,000 systems across over 460 geographically dispersed locations. What We Did VariQ was responsible for the design, deployment, and maintenance of the Enterprise Client Security system. Our team directly managed three product refreshes in four years. Our solution, used in 137 offices and committees, produced 100% voluntary user adoption. We implemented the Antivirus Managed System, which consists of multiple components all integrated seamlessly and providing enhanced security to servers, desktops, and mobile devices. We also implemented Symantec Client Security (SCS) on all desktops, workstations, and mobile devices running Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP operating systems. It further supports antivirus, firewall and IPS on Windows 2000, 2003, XP and Vista workstations and servers, and Apple Macintosh systems. Impact / Benefit The managed antivirus (AV) system, designed and operated by VariQ, has been credited with enhancing the overall security year-over-year, as demonstrated by written testimony to a Committee of the US Congress for FY The CIO repeatedly demonstrated our project in his quarterly CIO reports to all offices and our well-maintained trending and statistical information has been used since 2004 in written testimony to the Appropriations Committee.

Experience FBI – Network Architect Services to Present Summary Under subcontract with Lockheed Martin, provide critical network architect and design of 300,000+ node network for the FBI Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Program in West Virginia. What We Did VariQ staff on project are tasked with supporting the transition of multiple networks in the CJIS enterprise into a Shared Enterprise Network (SEN) environment. This revamping of the entire CJIS/FBI network utilizes numerous technologies and standards that once finished will seamlessly integrate these multiple networks into a single logical entity with shared resources and will allows the continued operation of the CJIS mission. VariQ engineers are responsible with redesigning each individual network inside CJIS that will move over to the individual SEN communities. This includes extensive documentation complete with detailed network drawings, system design plans, transitions plans, etc. All proposed network transitions are made into a virtual network modeler called OPNET - IT Guru, which virtually models the network then simulates traffic across all nodes and endpoints. This ensures that every change designed gets tested across the virtual network to find any irregularities or issues with the design. Impact / Benefits Provide network architect support to consolidate CJIS FBI network. Performed design, review, implementation tasks for network conversion program from an IPv4 to an IPv6 network. VariQ’s Lead Network Architect led the transition from IP4 to IP6 selecting and implementing appropriate standards for network layers, defining transition approaches/processes/etc, defining network architecture, allocating functions to devices, specifying devices, etc. Keywords: Network Architect, Cisco, TCP/IP,  SEN, IPv4, IPv6, OPNET, Testing, Modeling © VariQ Corporation 2010 VariQ Confidential – For IRS Internal use only

13 HUBZone Priority Ruling
Ability to sole source up to $3.5 Million Court of Federal Claims Decision (Mission Critical Solutions) Confirming HUBZone Priority (March 2010). The court's decision, which was unsealed on March 2, stated that agencies now must consider whether companies in a Historically Underutilized Business Zone can compete for a contract before awarding it under another small business program or on a sole-source basis. The case boiled down to whether the HUBZone program took precedence over the 8(a) program -- in which businesses are owned by socially or economically disadvantaged individuals. While the service-disabled veteran-owned small business program was not at issue, the court ruled it should be treated the same as the 8(a) program. All three categories are eligible for set-aside small business contracts. United States Court of Federal Claims, File no C. Mission Critical Solutions vs. The United States
