Award Recognizes Company for Impressive Growth Rate & Extensive Partner Support in 2015
RESTON, VA – February 24, 2016 – Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, announced today that it has been recognized as the Global Distributor of the Year for 2015 by FireEye, the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber-attacks. The award was announced at the FireEye Momentum 2016 conference in Las Vegas.
In 2015, the FireEye team at Carahsoft closed hundreds of transactions and conducted numerous marketing events, contributing to a 40 percent growth rate in public sector sales for FireEye. In addition, Carahsoft has played an integral part in getting FireEye added to more than 12 federal and state contracts in the US.
“Beyond the numbers, Carahsoft provided amazing support to our partners and FireEye through every quarter of the year,” said Chris Carter, FireEye’s vice president of North American channels. “FireEye could not have achieved such results in the public sector without Carahsoft.”
Carahsoft was named FireEye’s federal distributor and has served as the company’s master aggregator since June 2012. Based on its success, Carahsoft’s role was quickly expanded to support sales efforts in state and local government, education, and Healthcare markets, as well.
“We are honored to be recognized again by FireEye for the value we add to the company and its ecosystem of reseller partners,” said Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft president. “Cybersecurity is at the forefront of every IT agenda, and we are committed to providing our public sector customers and our reseller partners with the best security solutions available for defending against malicious cyber-attacks.”
This is the third year Carahsoft has been recognized by FireEye for its continued success in the public sector. Carahsoft was named FireEye Distributor of the Year in 2014 and was given the FireEye Outstanding Partner Performance Award in 2013.
