RESTON, VA--(Marketwired - Oct 29, 2013) - Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, today announced that it has been recognized by Inc. magazine as one of the nation's fastest growing, privately held companies for the sixth consecutive year.

With 2012 revenue of $1.4 billion, Carahsoft was the highest revenue producing company in Virginia and ranked second in the Washington-DC area. The company also was the largest revenue producer in its category, government services, and ranked #2496 overall. Carahsoft was once again on this year's Honor Roll, which recognizes companies who have appeared on the list for at least five years. Carahsoft grew at a rate of 142% over three years and was among the top .5% of companies to make over 1 billion dollars in revenue for 2012.
"Carahsoft is proud to have earned this recognition again," said Craig P. Abod, president of Carahsoft, which provides information technology solutions to the public sector market.
