At F5, our mission is based on the fact that businesses, governments, and schools depend on applications. Whether the application helps connect organizations to their citizens and students, or assist employees with their jobs – F5 ensures they are always available and secure, anywhere. The world’s largest government entities and educational institutions rely on F5 to stay ahead of security, cloud, and mobility trends.

Carahsoft has been a long time public sector distributor for F5 and provides unique value adds compared to other distributors in the IT space. We have a fully trained sales team hunting solely for F5 opportunities, drive registration to marketing events while also providing funding and field support when needed, and hold and manage multiple contract vehicles that are vital to SLED procurement processes. At Carahsoft, we like to position ourselves as an extension of F5’s inside sales and marketing teams and to continue to be a reliable F5 partner to their unity partner ecosystem.
