Zentera and Carahsoft Partner to Provide Zero Trust to Federal, State, and Local Government Agencies
Partnership Delivers Cybersecurity Solutions to Protect Assets, Applications and Data in Compliance with Federal Zero Trust Mandates
Milpitas, CA (PRUnderground) August 15th, 2023
Zentera Systems, the leader in Zero Trust Security for the digitally-transformed enterprise, today announced a partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Zentera’s Master Government Aggregator®, making the company’s Zero Trust security solutions available through Carahsoft’s reseller partners’ National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint, Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2), National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA) and OMNIA Partners contracts.
Zero Trust is a powerful technique that secures “crown jewel” assets, applications and data by preventing unauthorized access, even when malicious users have network access. Agencies use Zero Trust Architectures to block insider threats and lateral migration and ransomware to stop leaks of critical data -such as customer databases or intellectual property. These powerful capabilities led the White House to mandate the adoption of Zero Trust Security throughout the Federal Government in Executive Order 14028.
Zentera’s CoIP® Platform combines application identity-based Layer 7 segmentation, ZTNA and overlay networking to implement Zero Trust as defined by NIST SP800-207. Deploying as a software defined overlay on top of existing network infrastructure, the CoIP Platform enables instant compliance for legacy applications running in brownfield infrastructure – on-premises, cloud, or hybrid.
“Partnering with Carahsoft and its resellers has accelerated our engagements with Government customers,” said Jaushin Lee, Founder and CEO of Zentera Systems. “Federal, State and Local Governments looking to harness the benefits of advanced Zero Trust protection or to comply with EO 14028 and OMB M-22-09 can rapidly adopt our software defined solutions through Carahsoft’s extensive networks of system integrator and service partners. This enables us to scale quickly to serve a much wider range of Government end users.”
“Carahsoft is proud to partner with Zentera to bring new technology and methods that can ease the adoption of this critically important cybersecurity paradigm,” said Brian O’Donnell, Vice President of Cybersecurity Solutions at Carahsoft. “The Layer 7 overlay deployment model lowers the bar for customer adoption by making Zero Trust protection for on-premises and cloud applications actionable and fast. We are excited to work with Zentera and our reseller partners to accelerate the adoption of Zero Trust throughout the Government and secure critical infrastructures.”
Zentera’s platform and solutions are available through Carahsoft’s NASPO ValuePoint Master Agreement #AR2472,ITES-SW2 Contract W52P1J-20-D-0042, and NCPA Contract NCPA01-86. For more information, contact the Zentera team at Carahsoft at (844) 214-4790 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
