Splashtop and Carahsoft Join Forces to Deliver Secure Remote Access and Support Solutions to Public Sector and Education Customers

Carahsoft | November 03, 2021

Carahsoft, The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, and Splashtop, a leader in next-generation remote access and remote support software, today announced a partnership. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Splashtop’s Master Government Aggregator®, making the company’s secure remote access and support solutions available to the Public Sector through Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V, Information Technology Enterprise Solutions – Software 2 (ITES-SW2), National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA) and OMNIA Partners contracts, as well as through Carahsoft’s reseller partners.

Splashtop’s secure and high-performance remote access and support solutions enable Federal, State, Local Government and Educational institutions to implement a productive, hybrid workplace to ensure continuity by being able to remotely carry on business as usual. Departments and agencies can accomplish their missions and serve their constituents from anywhere.

“While the pandemic forced Public Sector organizations and Educational institutions to quickly adapt to remote work environments, there is no going back. Remote or hybrid work is the new “de facto” operating model for Federal, State, Local and Educational organizations. Additionally, with the rise of ransomware and other malicious threats, Government needs a superior alternative to unreliable VPN / RDP solutions that pose security and privacy risks. As a result of our strategic partnership with Carahsoft, our secure, remote access and remote IT support solutions are now easily accessible to Public Sector and Education customers to enable secure work and school from anywhere.”

Justin Windsor, Splashtop’s Channel Chief for the Americas

In today's digitally-driven business environment, cybersecurity is of critical importance. Cyber attacks are more sophisticated now than ever before, and businesses of all sizes from SMBs to massive enterprises can be affected. Even huge tech giants like Yahoo aren't exempt from the possibility of a data breach. Although this large-scale attack occurred three years ago, it was only discovered recently.

Esri Partners with Federal Government and State of California to Tackle Climate Change, Improve Resilience

Esri | September 20, 2022

Esri, the global leader in GIS and location intelligence, has partnered with agencies in the federal government and the state of California to build comprehensive and interactive climate data portals and targeted applications to better respond to climate hazards and conservation opportunities. Agencies have used GIS technology for decades to record and track authoritative data on a range of topics that can provide critical insights into complex challenges such as climate change. “Responding to climate change effectively requires a whole of government approach, By harnessing the vast data resources of federal agencies, we’re providing local communities with the information they need to make impactful, equitable decisions that will improve the lives of their citizens.” -David J Hayes, special assistant to the President for climate policy at the White House. This past week, Esri partnered with the Biden-Harris Administration, Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Department of the Interior (DOI), to jointly launch the Climate Mapping for Resilience and Adaptation (CMRA) portal. This new website helps organizations plan and implement climate resiliency actions by using a new screening tool that assesses the vulnerability of counties, census tracts and tribal lands. The location-based tool can be used to evaluate projects based on exposure to climate-related hazards now and in the future and can strengthen proposals for federal funding. In July, Esri partnered with NOAA and the Biden Administration through the interagency National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) to launch Heat.gov. Heat.gov offers maps, data and guidance that inform operational decisions by communities on a daily basis related to heat health and its impacts. Communities can also use current and forecasted data to plan equitable mitigation measures in anticipation of future heat events, such as where to plant more trees to improve shade in urban areas. The site seamlessly integrates heat information from across federal agencies, including heat forecasts from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Weather Service, the new national Climate and Health Outlook developed by the Department of Health and Human Services, the CDC’s Heat and Health Tracker, as well as heat planning and preparedness guides. In April of 2022, Esri partnered with the California Natural Resources Agency to build CA Nature in support of Governor Newsom’s vision to conserve 30 percent of the state’s land and coastal water by 2030 to fight species loss and ecosystem destruction. CA Nature provides publicly available interactive mapping and visualization tools to identify conservation opportunities and track progress against the 30x30 goal. Powered by Esri’s ArcGIS, CA Nature explains the 30x30 mission, visualizes biodiversity throughout the state, and catalogs protected lands. “Together, these efforts reflect the will and desire of governments at all levels to use maps and data to empower communities to effectively meet our most pressing climate challenges, We are encouraged that governments are embracing the power of maps and GIS to better understand climate impacts and how to plan and build for a more resilient and sustainable future.” -Jack Dangermond president Esri. About Esri: Esri, the global market leader in geographic information system (GIS) software, location intelligence, and mapping, helps customers unlock the full potential of data to improve operational and business results. Founded in 1969 in Redlands, California, USA, Esri software is deployed in more than 350,000 organizations globally and in over 200,000 institutions in the Americas, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, including Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, nonprofits, and universities.
