SAN ANTONIO -- GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GSB) a leading developer of file transfer solutions, today announced an exclusive partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corporation, a trusted government IT solutions provider with headquarters in Reston, Virginia. Under the terms of the agreement, Carahsoft will add GlobalSCAPE’s solutions to its General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule. Carahsoft also will provide proactive sales and marketing support to drive demand for GlobalSCAPE’s solutions within the federal, state, and local government markets.
With the Carahsoft partnership, government-wide customers can order GlobalSCAPE solutions directly from the Carahsoft GSA Schedule or through the GSA Advantage!® online shopping and ordering system. "We are thrilled to partner with Carahsoft to meet government demand for secure information exchange solutions," said Jeff Gehring, GlobalSCAPE Vice President of Sales. "Carahsoft is a leading provider of IT solutions to the government sector and this relationship allows us to provide this important customer base with proven, industry-leading solutions they can easily deploy and operate. It also allows us to build on our prior government sales successes and solution developments."
GlobalSCAPE received a $2.8M order from the US Army in May 2007 for secure client and server-based managed file transfer solutions as well as the associated maintenance and support. Since then, GlobalSCAPE has closed additional government business and, in November 2008, announced receipt of the Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) from the US Army Network Technology Command (NETCOM).
"GlobalSCAPE clearly is a company on the move in the government IT market," said Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft president. "We are pleased to add GlobalSCAPE to our GSA Schedule, providing government agencies with rapid, straightforward access to these mission-enabling solutions."
When asked to comment on the partnership, Craig A. Robinson, COO of GlobalSCAPE, stated "Having a strong relationship with a company of Carahsoft’s stature and reputation in government IT will make buying our solutions easier and faster for government customers no matter the organization or its location. We recognize the critical importance of long-term, pre-approved contract vehicles to these government organizations and look forward to working with Carahsoft to deliver business through their GSA Schedule."
