Here's a quick rundown on some other news from today that's worth a look:
GTT has been awarded an IT Schedule 70 contract with the GSA. The win will enable them to chae more federal contracts, expanding their government opportunities further after also winning a DISA contract earlier this year. They'll be looking to sell IP and Ethernet connectivity to various government agencies and organizations.
QTS also had some federal contract new this morning. They have acquired sole rights to VMware's vCloud Government Service, taking control of what had been developed in a partnership between the two companies. They've rebranded it under their own umbrella, and will be taking the FedRAMP-compliant cloud services to market on their own.
And on the security front, Corero has picked up a customer for its SmartWall Threat Defense System. They are now protecting 100Gbps of internet bandwidth from DDoS for the hosting and cloud provider Liquid Web. The real time mitigation has helped Liquid Web by reducing the number of outage minutes associated with large volumetric DDoS attacks.
