Carahsoft entered into an agreement with Cloud cover to market the latter company’s cybersecurity platform to federal government customers.
Thanks to this collaboration, CC/B1 of CloudCover security assurance and risk transfer software will be accessible by government agencies through Carahsoft’s contracts with NASA and OMNIA Partners and reseller organizations, the Reston, Va.-based company announced Thursday.
The CC/B1 platform works by combining its extended network detection and early response capability with the security, orchestration, automation and risk control apparatus. Together, the united platforms accelerate the process of investigation and mitigation of cyber threats by providing insight into all activity and connected devices on a given network, including on-premises and cloud connections.
The central feature of CloudCover’s software is its Cybersecurity Network Data Insurance component, which marks the first patented assurance statement directly linked to a cybersecurity program. With this feature, CC/B1 allays fears of ransomware damage in its integrated first- and third-party warranty insurance coverage.
Paul Kolb, Team Leader for CloudCover at Carahsoft, said CloudCover’s product provides data protection capability, adding that its risk transfer feature provides a high level of oversight and stability for users.
By using the product, the companies seek to prevent government agencies from worrying about ransomware, if a threat somehow breaks through the programs’ defenses, which Carahsoft and CloudCover claim to be top notch. They said the programs leveraged artificial intelligence deep learning and network detection response to identify threats with near-zero false positive accuracy.
The recent partnership announcement follows Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s new agreement with Carahsoft for the distribution of its portfolio of cloud products and data modernization services to government customers.
