Uplogix, the leading provider of next-generation secure remote management (SRM) solutions, today announced the award of a five-year General Services Administration (GSA) information technology contract (GS-35F-0511T). Uplogix’ inclusion on the GSA schedule is enabled by an agreement with government contractor EC America enabling federal agencies to purchase and deploy Uplogix remote management solutions from authorized Uplogix Government Channel Partners.
“With demands on the network increasing, our customers have been showing a great interest in remote management technology,” said Peter Schwartz, executive vice president, EC America. “Uplogix is an essential asset to the public sector community because they understand the needs IT staff require to maintain network availability and performance while also keeping security and compliance standards in check. By adding Uplogix to the GSA schedule, we are poised to deliver a viable solution for IT staff forced to do more with less. The product serves as a virtual administrator in remote sites.”
Public sector agencies tend to house a limited amount of IT staff to manage a widely distributed LAN or WAN infrastructure. The challenges faced with splitting time between manually making network enhancements and reacting to service outages or performance problems is overwhelming and costly. In either case, efforts to maintain network availability and performance are a major drain on an administrator’s time and often require a physical visit to an affected remote site to resolve problems or make routine changes.
Uplogix’ award-winning architecture integrates an always-available, secure and intelligent direct connection to the remote devices it manages–like putting your most trusted IT administrator everywhere, all the time. In comparison, traditional network management tools are not equipped to automate routine maintenance and recovery tasks because they depend on the network being available, and thus rely on people to do the work. The Uplogix solution is a new approach that significantly reduces labor costs and allows IT professionals to focus on more critical responsibilities.
“Being awarded this GSA contract is a milestone for Uplogix, and marks significant expansion into a market that has been approaching us for quite some time,” said Tom Goldman, CEO, Uplogix. “We recognize this opportunity as one that will strengthen our government channel program to continue delivering a solid product to public sector customers.”
