Government Agencies and Municipal Utilities Now Able to Access Powerful Cybersecurity Capabilities

Fend Incorporated and Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider,  announced a partnership. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Fend’s Master Government Aggregator, making the company’s industry-leading data diodes and critical infrastructure analysis tools 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), NASPO ValuePoint Cooperative Purchasing Organization and OMNIA Partners contracts.

Fend safeguards vital infrastructure against cyberattacks, ensuring customers secure access to data originating from industrial control systems and critical networks. Fend’s data diodes employ a physics-based approach to establish a permanent, one-way data path, delivering air gap level security while preserving essential connectivity for operational awareness. Whether streaming machine data or sending log files, this one-way connection protects crucial assets from attackers and helps agencies improve the productivity of maintenance teams and security operations center personnel.

Fend’s products are made in the USA and have been tested by the US Army and Navy. Agencies including the Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC), the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) trust Fend to protect their most critical assets. Fend’s solution can be paired with additional technologies, such as intrusion detection and internal network security monitoring systems, for an in-depth defense strategy that fits well into zero trust architectures.
