5/22/17 – Telos Corporation and Indigenous Technologies, a DNI Company, Selected to Manage the Indian Health Service’s IT Network

Indigenous Technologies, a DNI (Delaware Nation Industries) company, and Telos® Corporation announced they have been selected by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to operate the Indian Health Service (IHS) network that serves American Indians and Alaska Natives across federally-recognized tribes within the United States. Indigenous Technologies is a Native 8(a) company that provides IT services and solutions and Telos is a leading provider of continuous security solutions and services for the world’s most security-conscious organizations.

The Indigenous Technologies-Telos team will host infrastructure engineering and operations services at Telos’ secure operations facility in Las Vegas, NV.

It will also implement and support new network technology.

IHS is an agency within HHS that is responsible for providing federal health services to American Indians and Alaska Natives.
