This Request for Information (RFI) is being issued on behalf of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). One of CISA’s key missions is to protect federal networks and protect the Federal Civilian Executive Branch (FCEB) .gov domain enterprise from threats while strengthening cyber defenses. To that end, CISA is exploring a Protective Email Service (PES) to execute its mission to protect FCEB email traffic and to conduct threat hunting and incident response. 

The purpose of this RFI is to assist the Government in conducting market research focused on feedback and insight from industry who offer a broad set of email security capabilities and those who have delivered similar complex solutions in the Federal Government or private sector space (see high level and functional capabilities listed in section IV). Feedback will assist the government in refining solution design, use cases, and functional requirements, provide insight into scalability of the potential service(s), assist the government in determining industry segmentation by capability and size, and provide insights into the current offerings of PES the federal and corporate landscape in developing a potential acquisition strategy.

The information provided as response to this RFI will be used for market research only. The Government is not obligated to release a future solicitation based on this market research.
