Reston, VA – November 10, 2010 – Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, today announced its support for Adobe® Connect™ 8, which is expected to be released starting in November 2010 and made available to the public sector market through Carahsoft. This latest release of Adobe’s market-leading enterprise web conferencing solution includes new and enhanced features that will enable government agencies to further improve collaboration, complete work faster, and drive better results.

“With the enhancements provided in Adobe Connect 8, government agencies will have access to even more powerful capabilities to make web meetings, online training, and webinars more efficient, effective and engaging,” said Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft president.

Password-protected rooms bring additional security, and broader integration of audio and video—as well as XMPP chat—transform possibilities for web conferencing.”

Carahsoft will be hosting a series of webcasts and events featuring Adobe Connect 8. The first event, “Adobe Connect 8 Webinar: A Sneak Peek at New Features and Benefits,” will be held on Thursday, November 18, 2010.
