Carahsoft to Offer Data Protection Software Tanium to Government Customers; President Craig Abod Quoted

2 mins read

In response to the ramping up of cybersecurity threats in recent times, Carahsoft has teamed with Tanium, a platform that aids in visibility and endpoint management.

The information technology services company said Tuesday it has agreed to market the program to federal, state and local government clients through its various reseller merchants, such as NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement V and Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 contracts.

“Tanium’s addition to the Carahsoft robust cybersecurity solutions portfolio strengthens the arsenal of tools Government agencies can rely on and delivers the real-time visibility, control and rapid response they need to improve their cyber hygiene and strengthen their security posture,” said Craig Abod, Carahsoft president and eight-time recipient of the Wash100 Award.

Tanium’s platform intends to render IT processes both more efficient and secure via its endpoint management-delivering communications architecture. In doing so, the program strives to foster connectivity between operations and security teams.

Tanium Senior Vice President of Public Sector Teddra Burgess stressed how the current technological climate is motivating public sector officials to increase security and cyber hygiene measures, citing the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s recent directives.

These CISA orders “demonstrate the growing level of concern and determination to thwart future large-scale attacks that have crippling effects on agencies and organizations,” Burgess said.

Through Tanium’s implementation, Carahsoft hopes to help protect the storage of important information and assist in data analysis, retrieval and change execution, steeling data against potential cyber and ransomware attacks.

Earlier this month, Carahsoft announced they will be the government sector distributor for Cyara’s customer experience offerings.
