BlueVoyant and Carahsoft announce partnership

On March 14, BlueVoyant Government Solutions, a division of BlueVoyant focused on providing comprehensive cyber defense to governments, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., announced a partnership. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as the Public Sector Distributor for BlueVoyant Government Solutions, making BlueVoyant’s cutting-edge cybersecurity technology and services available to the public sector through Carahsoft’s reseller partners and NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V, Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2) and National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint contracts.

“Most U.S. government agencies are managing several different cybersecurity solutions to identify the threats they need to address,” said Lonny Anderson, president of BlueVoyant Government Solutions. “With a trusted partner like Carahsoft, we can bring BlueVoyant’s holistic approach to the public sector market, providing deep visibility and context into agencies’ cyber risk postures, as well as the tools and services needed to combat active vulnerabilities and threats.”

BlueVoyant was founded on years of experience building cyber defense capabilities for some of the most critical and hardened organizations in the world. Founded in 2017, BlueVoyant uniquely converges internal and external cyber defense into a single solution suite, leveraging machine-learning-driven automation and human-led expertise to assess, operationalize, verify and remediate threats.

The BlueVoyant Cyber Defense Platform continuously monitors an organization’s network, endpoints, attack surface and supply chain, as well as the clear, deep and dark web. The platform’s technology is paired with fully-managed services — including expert-staffed Security and Risk Operations Centers — to validate threats, provide mitigation plans and confirm remediations have taken place. Available solutions include:

Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) for continuous endpoint and network incident management built on preferred Microsoft and Splunk security information and event management (SIEM) systems.

Supply Chain Defense (SCD) for nth-tier supply chain illumination and mapping, as well as business and cyber risk monitoring and management across complex supply chain ecosystems.

Digital Risk Protection for proactive external attack surface protection, leveraging AI and threat intelligence analysts to surface and address fraud campaigns, data leakage and other physical security threats.

Professional Services for specialized support on cybersecurity strategy, vulnerability identification, as well as compliance standard auditing and assessments, such as CMMC and NIST 800-171.

“As the public sector faces mounting cyber threats to all aspects of operations, it is critical that agencies have access to a scalable, modular solution that meets the demands of today’s cyber threat landscape,” said Alex Whitworth, cybersecurity vertical executive at Carahsoft. “We look forward to working with BlueVoyant Government Solutions and our reseller partners to supply U.S. government agencies with a fully managed solution that actively protects government supply chains from threats, ensuring effective cyber defense and constituent service.”
