runZero and Carahsoft partner
On December 7, Austin, TX-based runZero, a leader in cyber asset attack surface management (CAASM), and Reston, VA-based Carahsoft Technology Corp., announced a partnership. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as runZero’s Master Government Aggregator making the company’s industry-leading CAASM solutions 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), National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA) and OMNIA Partners contracts.
As part of this partnership, Carahsoft will be able to offer its public sector customers runZero’s solutions for addressing the security challenges posed by expanding attack surfaces and a proliferation of devices that are increasingly hard to defend against emerging threats and vulnerabilities. The runZero Platform discovers IT, IoT, and OT assets across on-premises, cloud, and remote environments, including risky unknown and unmanaged assets. Combining proprietary active scanning, native passive discovery, and API integrations makes runZero unique in its ability to deliver comprehensive visibility into environments, asset details and associated risks, enabling security operations teams to proactively identify and mitigate exposures before they can be compromised.
runZero believes network visibility and asset inventory are foundational to maintaining a strong security posture. As government agencies and academic institutions implement large-scale telework and online learning initiatives, Carahsoft’s offerings and reseller partners provide a range of solutions that enable telework, support collaboration, ensure business continuity and scale communications channels and security. Partnering with Carahsoft will enable runZero to grow and connect with more agencies seeking a robust security strategy that starts with achieving complete visibility across assets, attack surfaces and potential exposures.
“We’re excited to partner with Carahsoft and its resellers to bring cyber asset attack surface management to the government and public sector,” said Joni Moss, runZero’s director of sales. “Through our new partnership, we can expand our offerings and better serve our joint customers. This partnership allows Government agencies access to a new, innovative approach to solving the long-standing challenge of knowing what they have on their network so they can proactively mitigate risk.”
“We are looking forward to enhancing the cybersecurity of government agencies through the effective cyber asset attack surface management solutions that runZero adds to our reseller ecosystem,” said Michael Shrader, vice president of innovative and intelligence solutions at Carahsoft. “The importance of having strong cybersecurity in the Public Sector is critical, and Carahsoft is proud to help agencies achieve their goals.”
Agencies today face an increasing number of cyber threats to their data and operations. The first step in securing their attack surface is to identify all assets and their associated risks: managed or unmanaged; IT, OT, or IoT; cloud, on-prem, or remote. With the addition of runZero’s CAASM capabilities to Carahsoft’s comprehensive portfolio of IT products, services and training, customers will be able to procure a complete solution that helps them effectively find, protect, and manage all their assets anywhere.
