Secureworks teams with Carahsoft to deliver critical data protection to the public sector

Atlanta, GA-based Secureworks and Reston, VA-based Carahsoft Technology Corp. announced on January 24 that they have formed an alliance. Together they are offering government and educational institutions an early warning system, driven by real-time threat intelligence, to help these entities prevent security breaches and protect the critical data and systems they oversee. Carahsoft will resell Secureworks’ solutions to the public sector via Carahsoft’s GSA Schedule 70 and NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP V) contracts.

Carahsoft will also distribute Secureworks’ solutions through the National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) Value Point cooperative purchasing contract and the California Multiple Award Schedule (CMAS), among other state-specific contract vehicles.

“We are excited to welcome Secureworks to the Carahsoft solutions portfolio,” said Maryam Emdadi Smith, vice president, who leads the Secureworks Solutions Team at Carahsoft. “We are extremely pleased about this alliance because now Carahsoft and its network of partners can offer government organizations and educational institutions a portfolio of trusted security solutions, enabling these entities to focus on their core organizational goals, without taxing their resources.”

“Carahsoft has long been established as a trusted advisor to government agencies and educational organizations, and in turn, organizations in both the public and private sectors have turned to Secureworks since 1999 to protect their critical informational assets,” said Steven Rich, who leads public sector sales for North America at Secureworks. “Working hand in hand with Carahsoft, we will provide agencies and institutions unparalleled visibility into the cyberattack landscape, and help them identify and mitigate potential cyber threats in all critical areas of their IT infrastructure.”
