RESTON, Va., March 27, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced that it has been named the 2023 Federal Key Contributor by Ping Identity, a leading provider of seamless and secure digital experiences. The award was announced at Ping Identity’s Sales Kickoff Award Ceremony and acknowledged Carahsoft’s success as Ping Identity’s sole distributor in the Federal space.

“This award recognizes Carahsoft for its outstanding dedication and success in serving as Ping Identity’s sole Federal distributor,” said Alex Ryals, VP of Channel Sales at Ping Identity. “Carahsoft empowers us to expand our sales and marketing efforts in the Public Sector and is tied to many of the deals that Ping Identity makes.

As Ping Identity’s Master Government Aggregator® since 2014, Carahsoft and its reseller partners have worked jointly with the company, deploying proactive sales and marketing strategies to expand its reach in the Public Sector. Carahsoft has effectively supported Ping Identity in disseminating its identity and access-management (IAM) solutions to Government customers, facilitating numerous in-person events, and generating valuable leads.
