Wiz and Carahsoft Partner to Bring Industry-Leading Cloud Security

Wiz, the leading cloud security platform that provides users with full visibility into their critical cloud risks, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced a partnership. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Wiz’s Master Government Aggregator®, making its solutions available to the Public Sector through Carahsoft’s reseller partners and NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V, Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2), National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA), NASPO ValuePoint, OMNIA Partners and The Quilt contracts.

“Our partnership with Carahsoft was a clear choice due to their extensive knowledge and expertise in Government contracting and procurement,” said Dean Scontras, Senior Federal Director at Wiz. “With access to Carahsoft's contracts and reseller partners, we are well positioned to deliver essential cloud security solutions to the Public Sector and help safeguard critical information."

Wiz consolidates cloud security tooling into a single platform that offers unparalleled visibility with actionable context, enabling organizations to proactively reduce the most critical risks in their cloud. Wiz provides an industry-leading Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) that integrates multiple technologies including Vulnerability Management, Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), Cloud Detection & Response (CDR) and Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP), and empowers security teams with a prioritized view of risk across their cloud environments.

Public Sector employees responsible for safeguarding Government assets can often be bogged down with an abundance of alerts related to potential threats. This inundation of information can result in alert fatigue and overlooked risks. Wiz addresses this challenge by running deep risk assessment across a customer’s cloud environment and surfacing the risks that create attack paths. Wiz creates a tailored and prioritized view with a simple, graph-based visual that provides users with rich context to focus on remediating the threats that matter.

With Wiz, Public Sector customers can rest easy knowing that their cloud environment is secure, and their mission critical assets are protected. Wiz’s continuous compliance assessment will provide agencies with the up-to-date information needed to pinpoint weak spots and rapidly address their gaps. Agencies that procure Wiz gain a comprehensive platform that simplifies cloud operations, strengthens your security posture and grants peace of mind.

“We are pleased to add Wiz’s innovative cloud security solutions to our portfolio,” said Brian O’Donnell, Vice President of Cybersecurity Solutions at Carahsoft. “As the Government actively strives to reinforce its cybersecurity capabilities, while maintaining low costs and high usability, our partnership with Wiz and Carahsoft’s resellers enable us to effectively support the Government’s initiatives and safeguard our nation’s valuable assets.”
