Corelight Named to U.S. Department of Defense Enterprise Software Initiative

Corelight, provider of the industry's leading open network detection and response (NDR) platform, today announced that it has been named a vendor on the Department of Defense (DoD) Enterprise Software Initiative (ESI) blanket purchase agreement (BPA) awarded to Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®. The BPA is signed for a 10-year period of performance through July 2029.

Under the agreement, Carahsoft will provide asset management and cybersecurity software, software maintenance support, information technology professional services and training from Corelight to the DoD, U.S. intelligence community and Coast Guard.

"Solidifying a true private/public partnership is essential to strengthening the nation's cybersecurity posture," said Jean Schaffer, federal CTO at Corelight. "Our data-first approach to cybersecurity aligns to the DoD's mission as federal agencies advance their digital transformation journeys and modernize infrastructure. We are proud to support this effort."

Corelight gives federal, state and local governments the advantage in network defense. Corelight's open network detection and response (NDR) platform delivers insights that protect citizens and data from cyberattacks.

This BPA supports the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement and is intended to reduce the contracting and open market costs associated with the traditional procurement process, including searching for sources, developing technical documents and solicitations, negotiating contractual terms, and evaluating offers.

Corelight's software solutions are available under Blanket Purchase Agreement N66001-21-A-0031 through Carahsoft's GSA Schedule No. GS-35F-0119Y. For procurement information, contact the Carahsoft IT Asset Management BPA Team at (703) 889-9878 or
