New Approval Accelerates Procurement Cycle of Safe-T’s ZoneZero® Solutions and Increases Addressable Market with Federal Government Agencies
HERZLIYA, Israel, April 26, 2021 — Safe-T® Group Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: SFET), a provider of secure access solutions and intelligent data collection, today announced that its ZoneZero® solution, developed by its wholly owned subsidiary, Safe-T Data A.R Ltd., has received U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) registration approval under the Federal Government’s Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) for Industrial Products and Services. The approval was given through the company’s lead distributor in North America, Philemon Security USA (“Philemon”), and its channel partners.
The GSA serves as the acquisition and procurement arm of the U.S. federal government, helping public agencies at the federal, state, and local levels access products and services from pre-approved vendor lists without the lengthy procurement process. Through GSA’s MAS, federal government agencies can now buy Safe-T’s Zero Trust Network Access solutions and gain secure access for their departments, agencies, and third-party businesses.
“Following our addition to the SEWP contract vehicle, the GSA schedule approval offers an even wider potential customer base and enables an easier process for federal agencies to purchase our solutions. In less than a month, our newly added partner in North America, Philemon, greatly advanced our position and opened up additional opportunities in the biggest market for our solutions,” said Shachar Daniel, Chief Executive Officer of Safe-T.
“Securing GSA approved vendor status aligns with Philemon’s and Safe-T’s ability to provide government agencies access to new innovative solutions to replace current outdated technology,” said Keith Mortier, Chief Executive Officer of Philemon.
Safe-T’s innovative ZoneZero® solution is an ideal fit for the defense and federal sectors, as secure access is vital for all business aspects. Safe-T’s ZoneZero® unifies all remote access needs in one zero-trust network access solution: human users (VPN users, non-VPN users, internal users), applications, APIs, and connected devices. It grants secure access to all corporate resources, applications, and services, including Web, SSH, RDP, SFTP, thick applications, proprietary applications, SMB, TCP, APIs, and more. ZoneZero® applies Zero Trust security models by orchestrating authentication first, access later concepts, with strong and continuous authentication, and multifactor authentication to all resources.
Earlier this month, the company’s solutions were added as an approved vendor to NASA’s solution for enterprise-wide procurement contract vehicle (SEWP). All U.S. federal agencies, including the Department of Defense, and government contractors are able to purchase ICT and AV solutions (equipment and services) from SEWP-authorized resellers. NASA’s SEWP-V is a United States Government-Wide Acquisition Contract authorized by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget and managed by NASA.
GSA Schedule (also referred to as MAS and Federal Supply Schedule) is a long-term government-wide contract with commercial firms providing federal, state, and local government buyers access to more than 11 million commercial supplies (products) and services at volume discount pricing. GSA offers unparalleled acquisition solutions to meet today’s acquisition challenges. GSA’s key goal is to deliver excellent acquisition services that provide best value, in terms of cost, quality and service, for federal agencies and taxpayers. For more information, click here.
