Companies Establish Relationship to Deliver Solutions to National Security Customers
SAN ANTONIO -- GlobalSCAPE, Inc. (NYSE Amex: GSB), a leading developer of secure information exchange solutions, today announced a partnership with Intelligent Decisions, Inc., a $250 million IT solutions provider with headquarters in Ashburn, Virginia. Under the terms of the agreement, Intelligent Decisions will resell and integrate GlobalSCAPE’s solutions within the federal government. "Intelligent Decisions has a 20-year track record of growth and success within the government IT market. Their market footprint is particularly large within intelligence agencies and other national security organizations requiring secure information exchange solutions," stated Jeff Gehring, GlobalSCAPE Vice President of Sales.
GlobalSCAPE has made significant inroads into the government IT market in recent years. Last month, the company announced another multi-million dollar contract with the U.S. Army for secure file transfer solutions. GlobalSCAPE previously has announced several software certifications and validations necessary to support widespread adoption by government customers. "GlobalSCAPE has been delivering market leading secure file transfer solutions for more than 10 years. Their multiple, large contract wins within the Department of Defense demonstrate the strength of the company’s solutions. We look forward to pursuing additional business opportunities and leveraging GlobalSCAPE’s experience and strengths into our customer base," said Roy Stephan, IT Architecture and Engineering Director for Intelligent Decisions.
The partnership with Intelligent Decisions complements GlobalSCAPE’s previously announced partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corporation. "The Carahsoft relationship supports rapid, streamlined procurement by government customers, principally through Carahsoft’s GSA Schedules and other established government contract vehicles," Gehring noted. "Intelligent Decisions is a value-added reseller and integrator with access to a variety of specialized government contract vehicles and awarded prime contracts. With our recent partnerships, we have established much stronger industry relationships across the government sector."
Gehring indicated that GlobalSCAPE intends to grow its government business significantly in the future. "We have substantial traction and momentum within certain areas of the DoD. Interoperability and security requirements should drive a greater degree of commonality among IT solutions deployed in direct support of warfighters and within the intelligence community," Gehring continued. "We are pleased to be working with Intelligent Decisions to deliver solutions that will support other DoD and intelligence community customers as well as the broader national security community."
