Cloud and Managed Infrastructure Service Provider Webair Wins Major Contract
July 11, 2018
Cloud and managed infrastructure service provider Webair has won a major contract. Webair, which has headquarters in Garden City, New York, United States, was established in 1996. The company offers a range of products and services including public, private and hybrid cloud options alongside Ransomware Recovery-as-a-Service, off-site backups, colocation, SAP application options, and DDoS mitigation. The company prides itself on offering “agile and reliable cloud and managed infrastructure solutions” that harness the benefits of its data centers in the United States, Canada and the Netherlands. The New York State Office of General Services (NYS OGS) awarded Webair an Information Technology Umbrella Manufacturer-based contract.
Webair caters for a wide range of industries including healthcare and IT and its offerings are available using a customer’s existing infrastructure “via direct network tie-ins”. The company’s latest contract shows that it “is a vetted and state-approved IT vendor” that reduces the length of bidding processes to make services procurement easier for New York State authorized users. To win the contract the company had to submit to an audit over a 12-month period which verified its “ability to provide high-quality services compliant with state regulations”. As a result of winning the contract, Webair’s channel partners can resell Webair services to NYS authorized users.
“As a privately-owned, New York-based organization, Webair is continually seeking new opportunities to enhance our community’s IT landscape with fully-managed infrastructure services delivered privately, ensuring the lowest possible latency and sovereignty for all state-funded organizations,” suggested Webair’s CEO, Michael Christopher Orza. “Through this OGS contract, we are providing these government agencies and organizations with the ability to support digital transformation via customized and flexible hybrid cloud configurations, including the ability to house data locally and securely, untethered from the public internet, and eliminating the need to store sensitive information hundreds, or even thousands of miles away”.
