In the SPOTLIGHT: BIC Client Advent Services Wins Major Federal Contracts

Advent Services, a local woman-owned small business and BIC client since 2014, was recently awarded two contracts by the US Department of Veterans Affairs for the deployment, management and security of a high-bandwidth secure wireless network, associated infrastructure, and user support at the Memphis (TN0 Veterans Affairs Medical Center, a facility serving 196,000 veterans in a 53-county area spanning western Tennessee, northern Mississippi and northwest Arkansas. Advent Services proposed a Cybersecurity Managed Services approach that provides 24/7/365 monitoring, management and security of the Center’s information systems as well as remote user support. According to President Amy Santos-Alejandro, “We won this competitive bid because our program provides the government best-value and a better ROI (return on investment) without compromising security or customer response.”

While the security of a healthcare organization’s information and IT systems is one of its utmost priorities, this level of security is cost-intensive and sometimes cost-prohibitive when using the traditional in-house personnel model.  According to Tomas Santos-Alejandro, Advent’s VP of Operations, “These awards validate our philosophy that with a holistic approach that includes innovative technologies, fined-tuned processes and customized tools, we can secure, manage and support a sensitive network and its users even at such a great geographical distance. Our goal is to provide businesses in the northwest Florida region enterprise-level services with substantial cost benefits by utilizing the same Cybersecurity Managed Services approach in place at the Memphis VA Medical Center.”

Advent Services specializes in software engineering, cybersecurity, information technology and professional services for public and private sector organizations.  Amy and Tomas Santos-Alejandro can be reached at
