SimSpace and Carahsoft collaborate to fortify U.S. government agencies against cyberattacks

SimSpace, a leader in military-grade cyber ranges, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., the Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider, are partnering to bring continuous security improvement solutions to the public sector.

Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as SimSpace’s Master Government Aggregator, making the company’s cyber ranges and cybersecurity training solutions 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), National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint, and OMNIA Partners contracts.

“We are excited to partner with Carahsoft to bring ready-made, world-class cyber readiness solutions to the Public Sector,” said William “Hutch” Hutchison, CEO of SimSpace Corporation. “Government agencies face a variety of increasingly sophisticated and frequent cybersecurity threats. This partnership empowers agencies to respond to those threats effectively and ensures the critical services citizens depend on will be protected by the same cutting-edge capabilities national cyber defense teams use every day.”

SimSpace’s solutions equip agencies with advanced cybersecurity training and simulated environments to fortify their defenses against cyberthreats.

Leveraging the company’s military-grade cyber range and sophisticated skill development curriculum, the SimSpace Cyber Force platform enhances agencies’ capabilities to safeguard critical assets, defend against adversaries, and develop proficient cybersecurity teams, according to the vendors.

 The platform promotes governance, risk management, and continuous improvement in cyber defense through measurable lifecycle enhancements. With optional live-fire events and tailored attack content, agencies can refine their cyber defense strategies and bolster resilience against evolving threats.

SimSpace recently announced a first-of-its-kind, multi-year contract by The Florida Center for Cybersecurity at the University of South Florida, also known as Cyber Florida, through Carahsoft’s OMNIA Partners procurement vehicle.

This contract award established SimSpace’s offerings on Carahsoft’s OMNIA Partners contract as an already-competed, readily available ordering form that additional states can easily leverage. The SimSpace Cyber Force Platform will provide nation-state-level security capabilities to stress test, strengthen, and improve the effectiveness of Florida's over one million Government employees at agencies and institutions across the state. As a result, Florida is prepared to prevent and counter increasingly severe cyber threats and stands as an example of State level cybersecurity excellence in the U.S.

“We are thrilled to aid in the advancement of Cyber Florida's cybersecurity initiatives through our partnership with SimSpace,” said Brian O’Donnell, vice president of cybersecurity solutions at Carahsoft. “Together with our reseller partners, we look forward to supplying the Public Sector with access to the SimSpace Cyber Force Platform to help agencies achieve digital modernization and enhanced cyber resilience.”

SimSpace’s offerings are available through Carahsoft’s SEWP V contracts NNG15SC03B and NNG15SC27B, ITES-SW2 Contract W52P1J-20-D-0042, NASPO ValuePoint Master Agreement #AR2472 and OMNIA Partners Contract #R191902.
