Asankya Delivers RAPIDnet through Carahsoft's GSA Schedule

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

Asankya RAPIDnet Application Delivery Network, or “AND,” service will now be marketed and sold to government and military markets through Carahsoft's General Services Administration, or “GSA,” schedule.

Asankya’s RAPIDnet can securely accelerate encrypted traffic of applications over the Internet.
According to company officials, this makes it an ideal solution for government entities. This agreement means Asankya RAPIDnet can be purchased by public sector customers through the Carahsoft GSA Schedule 70, also known as No. GS-35F-0131R.
Carahsoft president, Craig P. Abod, said that Asankya is one of the In-Q-Tel portfolio companies that provides innovative technologies to support the United States Intelligence Community, which allows the company to fit naturally among Carahsoft’s product offerings.
Additionally, the partnership enables Carahsoft to proactively offer its Application Delivery Network to meet the needs of all federal, state and local agencies working with applications over the Internet.
Asankya co-founder and CEO Scott Ryan said that they have been working exclusively with the United States Intelligence Community for more than two years. Over this period, Asankya has enabled the efficient delivery of their mission-critical applications.
Partnership with Carahsoft has allowed them to offer their Asankya RAPIDnet capabilities to all government agencies, critical to federal missions.
Asankya's RAPIDnet service enables secure, high-speed delivery of Internet-based applications. By using multiple pathways across the Internet, Asankya RAPID Protocol is able to deliver up to 40x improvements in throughput while maintaining the security, availability and global consistency.
According to company officials at Asankya, their RAPIDnet is the only application delivery service that accelerates encrypted traffic, optimizes bi-directionally and improves the performance of both TCP- and UDP-based applications.
