Ingram Micro to Offer HPE Aruba's Wireless Networking Tech to Federal Customers - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise subsidiary, has authorized Ingram Micro to distribute its wireless networking products to federal government clients, CRN reported Thursday.

The expanded partnership will allow Ingram Micro to add Aruba's secure networking platforms portfolio to its General Services Administration schedule.

Tony Celeste, executive director and general manager for Ingram Micro's public sector business, said Aruba holds Suite B cryptography and Commercial Solutions for Classified program certifications from the National Security Agency.

"The federal government has the same challenges as everyone in that it is trying to take advantage of commercial products, but has lagged in its plans because of security issues," Celeste told the publication. "Aruba is a leader here because of its multi-zone capabilities, which can segment classified and unclassified network traffic."
