Award Recognizes Company for Enabling Exceptional Sales Growth in 2013

RESTON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, announced today that it has been named Distributor of the Year for 2013 by FireEye, the leader in stopping today's advanced cyber attacks. The award was announced at the FireEye annual sales and partner conference held in Las Vegas in February.

"From the time we started working together, Carahsoft demonstrated its ability to add significant value for FireEye by providing support through briefings, lead generation and marketing," said Steve Pataky Vice President of Worldwide Channels and Alliances at FireEye. "This steady stream of activity has been a key part of our channel engagement, making Carahsoft an invaluable partner for our company."

In 2013 the FireEye team at Carahsoft made tens of thousands of proactive lead calls, arranged hundreds of capabilities briefings for the FireEye government sales team and conducted numerous marketing events. As a result, the Carahsoft FireEye team generated significantly more revenue over its previous year's performance.

"We are honored to be recognized again for our team's dedication to creating new business for our vendors," said Robert R. Moore, senior vice president at Carahsoft. "In the last year, Carahsoft's team was instrumental in generating net new business for FireEye. In 2014, as FireEye expands in the government sector we, along with our reseller partners, are excited to again play a critical role in helping them achieve their goals."

As the first FireEye federal distributor, Carahsoft has served as the company's master government aggregator since June 2012. Based on its proven track record, Carahsoft received the FireEye Outstanding Partner Performance Award, and also now serves as the sole distributor for FireEye in the SLED market as well.
