Carahsoft to Distribute Qualys Gov Platform and Its Integrated Security
and Compliance Offerings to Federal Agencies

Expanded partnership delivers defense and civilian federal agencies a unified, FedRAMP-authorized solution for IT visibility and continuous security and compliance

FOSTER CITY, Calif. – July 9, 2018 – Qualys, Inc. (NASDAQ: QLYS), a pioneer and leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, today announced an expanded partnership under which Carahsoft will proactively market, sell and distribute the FedRAMP-authorized Qualys Gov Platform to federal agencies as well as state and local governments. The Qualys Gov Platform is delivered through the FedRAMP cloud, private clouds and as an on-premises solution.

“As the only FedRAMP-authorized security and compliance assessment platform, the Qualys Gov Platform will enable Carahsoft and its resellers to help federal civilian and defense agencies better secure and sustain their security and compliance postures,” said Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft President. “Qualys has the experience and technology to help these agencies identify, detect, prevent and respond to cyber threats, comply with regulatory and compliance requirements, and protect digital transformation initiatives.”

As federal agencies accelerate their digital transformation efforts, they need a unified and strategic approach to security and compliance that gives them the necessary visibility to maintain complete and continuous control of vast and complex IT environments. By leveraging the scale, accuracy and immediacy of the Qualys Gov Platform, federal agencies can build a comprehensive IT security and compliance framework to protect today’s hybrid, distributed and fast-changing IT environments.

“Carahsoft has long been established as a trusted advisor to government agencies, and Qualys’ FedRAMP authorization streamlines those agencies’ assessment and approval process for adopting our platform,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO, Qualys, Inc. “By consolidating the security stack with the Qualys Gov Platform, federal CISOs who are working with Carahsoft and its partners can quickly eliminate the expense and management of siloed, heterogeneous point security products, and focus on providing IT visibility at an agency-wide level while building security into their digital transformation efforts.”

The expanded partnership, along with the recent planned potential acquisition of Second Front Systems, reaffirms Qualys’ commitment to the federal market and related expansion of its presence in the space.

Qualys’ FedRAMP-authorized solutions are available through Carahsoft’s GSA Schedule No. GS-35F-0119Y and SEWP contracts NNG15SC03B and NNG15SC27B.
