Cloudburst partners with Smartpoint and Carahsoft

On March 5, Cloudburst Technologies LLC., Smartpoint Solutions LLC., and Carahsoft Technology Corp. announced a partnership. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Cloudburst’s Public Sector Distributor, making the company’s crypto fraud solutions available to the Public Sector through Carahsoft’s reseller partners, NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V, Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2), National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint and OMNIA Partners contracts, with Smartpoint operating as a certified Cloudburst reseller.

The Cloudburst Application Programming Interface (API) provides crypto fraud detection and prevention through various features including structured, machine-readable, real-time monitoring of crypto fraud campaigns across social media and the Deep and Dark Web to reveal the targeted cryptos, exchanges and more. These detection capabilities can offer agencies insight on upcoming illicit activities and attacks up to a week in advance. The API also tracks global online actors using a range of search parameters and delivers comprehensive metadata on groups and actors with reliability scores for each source to identify the key market movers.

“As a VAR that delivers a comprehensive portfolio of emerging and disruptive solutions to the government, we are excited about this partnership that leverages our combined expertise with Carahsoft and its broad range of contract vehicles,” said Steven Cooperman, vice president of sales at Smartpoint Solutions. “We are certain that Cloudburst will quickly become a critical component of the Government’s prevention initiatives.”

“Cloudburst provides real-time monitoring solutions and cyber threat intelligence solutions that help track online forums and messaging applications and find those responsible,” said Evan Kohlmann, president of Cloudburst. “We offer solutions that serve customers in the Public Sector, the web3 ecosystem and traditional finance. With Cloudburst’s unique and powerful set of tools, investigators track and identify perpetrators in a way that doesn’t depend on anonymous wallet addresses.”

“The government is facing coordinated efforts that cut across multiple agencies,” said Alex Whitworth, cybersecurity solutions vertical executive at Carahsoft. “Carahsoft, along with our partner and reseller community, is focused on providing the government with solutions that help identify and prevent attacks before they happen. With this new partnership – and the combined efforts of the Carahsoft, Smartpoint and Cloudburst teams – we can help the Public Sector mitigate these threats and empower agencies to stay ahead in the fight against organized and state sponsored groups.”
