Partnership will provide agencies with cryptographically hardened communications capabilities for secure communications in even the most hostile and contested environments
WASHINGTON, DC and RESTON, VA – July 1, 2020 – SpiderOak Mission Systems, providers of cryptographically secure communication and collaboration products, today announced a strategic partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, to accelerate awareness and availability of its Zero Knowledge Encryption/Distributed Ledger-based capabilities to Federal agencies and the intelligence community. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as SpiderOak’s Master Government Aggregator™, making the company’s secure communications solutions available through Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V contracts and reseller partners.
"SpiderOak’s security value proposition could not be more relevant to the Federal mission space than it is right now, and I can think of no better partner than Carahsoft to expand our reach to these potential clients,” said Mike Campanelli, Federal VP at SpiderOak Mission Systems. "Public and private organizations are rapidly expanding their use of remote communication and collaboration capabilities. The urgency of this situation compresses the due diligence runway of deploying such capabilities from miles to feet. However, doing so securely is the challenge. At SpiderOak, this is what we do. The world is a safer place when its data is secure.”
SpiderOak’s CrossClave solution is a fully secure modern productivity suite designed from the ground up to meet the information security needs of the Federal government. A security-first alternative to existing SaaS-based file sharing tools, CrossClave gives users absolute confidence in the safety and integrity of their most sensitive data across trusted and untrusted networks alike. Leveraging Zero Knowledge Encryption, CrossClave eliminates entire categories of cyberattacks, reducing the attack surface and the subsequent vulnerabilities attackers can exploit. Additionally, CrossClave’s application of Distributed Ledger/Private Blockchain capabilities is unique in the industry and raises the bar on managing authority and trust around data and processes, providing a new level of data integrity and non-repudiation.
“SpiderOak is the right partner in our new telework and virtual collaboration environment and offers government clients operating in insecure adversarial environments complete confidence in the confidentiality, integrity and availability of their most sensitive information assets,” said Caroline Malaby, Manager of the SpiderOak team at Carahsoft. “More and more, we are seeing the need for cryptographically secure communications among our Federal clients, many of whom are adapting to increases in remote employees. Many of these same agencies have zero tolerance for risk in securing sensitive communiques and information, and SpiderOak offers the ideal solution to address this critical need. We look forward to working with SpiderOak and our reseller partners to help our government clients securely communicate and collaborate.”
SpiderOak’s secure communications solutions are available through Carahsoft’s SEWP V contracts NNG15SC03B and NNG15SC27B.
