"We are thrilled to have been selected as Citrix's 'State & Local Partner of the Year,' for North America," said Mike Strohl, CEO of Entisys. "Entisys has been a Citrix Platinum partner for more than 10 years, and it was based on our relationship with them that we chose to enter the state and local government arena several years ago. Citrix's channel, state and local sales teams did a magnificent job of working with our sales and marketing teams to create a state and local go-to-market sales and marketing strategy. The successful execution of this strategy has resulted in state and local becoming one of the highest growth sales verticals for our company."

VOA also provides a holistic technology platform for today's critical business operations -- meeting the objectives of optimum performance, maximum security, greater flexibility, high availability, broad support and improved return in investment (ROI) and total cost of ownership (TCO).

"Being honored as the 'State & Local Partner of the Year' by Citrix is yet another example of the incredible channel programs and partnerships between Citrix and its partners. We are looking forward to using this as a launch pad for our full array of virtualization solutions that we are providing to state and local customers across the State of California," continued Strohl.
