Walling Data Awarded GSA Contract Cymphonix Products

Award-winning, cost-effective content filtering & secure web gateway product now available to federal government agencies for the first time.

Claremont, NC, September 10, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Walling Data (www.wallingdata.com), a leading value-added distributor of world-class technology products to more than 50,000 customers in North America, announced today that it has been awarded a contract with the United States General Services Administration (GSA) to sell the Cymphonix product lines to U.S. federal government agencies.

“This is the first time that Walling and Cymphonix have appeared on the GSA schedule, so this contract is an important milestone for both companies,” said Luke Walling, president of Walling Data. “More government entities are working with limited IT budgets and facing more sophisticated threats from the inside, with ‘creative’ users manipulating their IT environment to misuse the Internet on the taxpayers’ dime. Cymphonix provides accessible, affordable solutions to Internet management problems that challenge many government agencies.”

Cymphonix appointed Walling as its first Value-Added Distributor in North America in April of this year. The company’s headline product, Network Composer, helps organizations enforce usage policies, audit Internet usage, and shape how employees use the Internet at work. The reliability and speed of Internet connections can be erratic if users are downloading large files, visiting dynamic or video-intensive websites, or using a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) connection like Skype. Network Composer enables organizations to monitor this activity for traffic flow, adjusting as necessary to ensure critical communications are not impacted by unauthorized or inappropriate user activities. The product, which was named a Hot Product at this year’s Everything Channel's XChange Solution Provider, also includes a complete reporting suite that shows top bandwidth users, most active Internet users, sites visited, and more.

“This contract opens up an entirely new sales channel for our product that has yet to be tapped,” said Kevin Santiago, CEO of Cymphonix. “In the short time we’ve been working with Walling, we’ve already seen a high demand for Cymphonix products in other markets they serve, and we anticipate they will generate the same excitement in the government sector. We’re pleased to provide them with a superior product, at a competitive price point, that they will support with their unbeatable customer service.”

Walling Data’s seasoned, manufacturer-trained experts provide the same unlimited, no-cost U.S.-based support for government customers - via toll-free phone, email, live chat, and remote control - as it does for all its customers.

GSA establishes long-term government-wide contracts with commercial firms to enable federal government offices to order commercial supplies and services directly from those firms using the GSA Schedule. GSA Schedules offer customers direct access to solutions and services at preferential pricing, reducing delivery times, and administrative costs.

The Walling Data contract, number GS-35F-0410U, is effective immediately. Cymphonix Network Composer may now be purchased by government entities at https://www.gsaadvantage.gov/ or by calling 866-833-5727 x266.
