Anchore and Carahsoft Partner to Provide Container-Based Security to the Public Sector
SANTA BARBARA, Ca. and RESTON, Va., July 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anchore, experts in container workflow, analysis and security, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced a partnership. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Anchore’s Master Government Aggregator™, making Anchore’s container security inspection platform available to the public sector through Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V and Maryland Commercial Off the Shelf Software (COTS) contracts and the company’s reseller partners. In addition, Anchore is available under Carahsoft’s U.S. Air Force DevSecOps BOA, which is established to support the U.S. Air Force LevelUP mission as well as the DevSecOps goals of the greater Department of Defense (DoD) and related agencies.
“We chose Carahsoft as our Master Government Aggregator based on their ability to effectively address the broad and complex public sector market,” said Craig Bowman, Vice President of Public Sector at Anchore. “Organizations building and deploying cloud-native technologies – including the DoD and civilian agencies such as the DHS, VA, and HHS – need Anchore to manage an increasingly fragmented and dynamic software supply chain. With this partnership, we can use policy-based compliance to secure workflows across the public sector.”
Anchore’s container inspection and analytics platform provides deep container image inspection, analysis, scanning, reporting and verification to ensure that DevSecOps workflows run efficiently without compromise. This offering is comprised of three comprehensive solutions:
“As container use in agencies’ DevSecOps pipelines continues to rise, the need to protect those containers from threats also increases,” said Natalie Gregory, Vice President of Sales at Carahsoft. “Anchore’s mission to help users create and deploy trusted software quickly and efficiently alleviates those risks. We look forward to working with Anchore and our reseller partners to bring security-first solutions to the public sector.”
