Syncsort has announced a distribution agreement with Carahsoft, the Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider™. Carahsoft and its network of specialized resellers will market and sell Syncsort Ironstream® to deliver real-time mainframe machine data to Splunk® Enterprise, helping government agencies meet regulatory requirements.

The partnership will allow federal, state and local agencies to get a handle on all enterprise data, including mainframe, required to meet compliance needs. The combination of Ironstream and Splunk Enterprise also provides a way to get valuable insights to support their Splunk-enabled ITOA, Enterprise Security and IT Service Intelligence initiatives. The distribution agreement makes Ironstream a formal part of the solution set for Carahsoft resellers.

“Many government agencies are grappling with compliance mandates and losing money because they don’t have complete insight into their operations or enough intelligence about service delivery and security,” said Don Marcotte, Senior Director of Sales and Alliances. “The combination of Ironstream,  Splunk Enterprise and Carahsoft resellers’ deep technical and government knowledge will help federal, state and local government agencies meet these challenges.”

Syncsort, Carahsoft and their expert government resellers will work together to provide a complete solution that helps agencies comply with strict regulations, such as IRS publication 1075 tax information security requirements, and save money by improving operations and preventing erroneous or fraudulent payments.

“We are excited to welcome Syncsort to our partner ecosystem and make the company’s solutions available to our government customers and reseller ecosystem,” said Janelle Rohrer, Manager of the Splunk Technology Alliance Team at Carahsoft. “Syncsort’s innovative Ironstream software expands the information available to Splunk’s advanced analytics to include mainframe data, providing our customers with security insights and critical business intelligence to help them meet strict compliance rules, increase operational efficiency and control costs.”

Syncsort and Carahsoft are part of the Splunk Partner+ Program and are committed to bringing the value of Splunk to government agencies and organizations. Carahsoft is developing an ecosystem of Splunk partners who provide compatible solutions and additional operational intelligence capabilities to the Operational Intelligence Splunk platform.
