CenterBeam Partners With Winvale to Bring Benefits of the Cloud to Government Agencies

Enables Agencies to Maintain Internal Policies for Security and Devices While Leveraging the Cloud for IT Support

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 4, 2012) - CenterBeam Inc., a pioneer in hosted IT services, is bringing benefits of its enterprise-class IT managed services and support to the federal, state and local governments through a partnership with Winvale, a leading government technology solutions provider. CenterBeam's hosted services provide agencies with the ability to cost-effectively move their IT infrastructure to the cloud without sacrificing the flexibility and control they need to maintain internal policies for security and device management that meet their unique needs.

"Government CIOs are trying to do more with less, and moving IT infrastructure to the cloud is an ideal way to enable their staff to focus more closely on supporting their agencies' missions, rather than the day-to-day management tasks," said Kevin Lancaster, managing partner at Winvale. "CenterBeam is a solid partner for Winvale in the public sector as they focus on helping agencies assess what can effectively be moved to the cloud. They also have a unique offering comprised of best-in-class software and tools that can provide government agencies a more affordable and scalable IT infrastructure solution that can easily integrate into their existing environments."

With more than a decade of experience in delivering hosted services and facilitating clients' move to the cloud, CenterBeam can provide government clients with a Cloud Readiness Assessment that will help them identify aspects of their IT infrastructure that can be virtualized and establish a strategy for cloud migration to fit their unique business needs. CenterBeam's broad service portfolio provides secure, cohesive and scalable IT services based on a physical, virtual, cloud and mobile infrastructure. Additionally, CenterBeam gives government agencies the tools they need to support greater mobility, allowing employees to bring their own device, yet ensure that security and business policies are not compromised.

"Businesses around the world are experiencing the benefits of the cloud -- from simplified IT management to improved collaboration and cost savings -- particularly as mobile devices and greater use of social media are redefining how employees, customers and citizens interact. Now, through our partnership with Winvale, Federal government agencies can achieve these same advantages," said Karen Hayward, chief marketing officer at CenterBeam. "Based on our experience delivering hosted IT services, we have developed offerings that will allow each agency to move to the cloud in the manner that is most appropriate for their operations, yet not have to sacrifice the features, securities and business policies they require."

CenterBeam's pioneering cloud solutions are now available on Winvale's GSA Schedule 70, GS-35F-0074S and CMAS Contract: 3-09-70-2651A.

Winvale and CenterBeam will be hosting a webinar entitled "A Tidal Wave of Tablets: How to Manage a New Era of IT Support for Mobile Devices" on April 5, 2012, at 2 p.m. ET, during which CenterBeam CTO Shahin Pirooz will discuss how cloud-based solutions can simplify mobile device management for IT departments and make it easier for users to access all applications irrespective of device.
