Dulles, VA – March 8, 2013 – Technica Corporation, a leader in Systems Engineering, Software Development, Information Assurance and Product Solutions for the Federal Government, announced today that it has been awarded the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Enterprise Services Directorate (ESD) Software as a Service (SaaS) contract. This contract will allow the Technica Team to provide Symantec’s NetBackup platform to the Department of Defense (DoD) in a Software as a Service (SaaS) model.

We are pleased to work with Symantec and Carahsoft in order to help DISA bring uninterrupted computing services to the DoD and the warfighter.”
The Technica Team is comprised of Technica Corporation the Symantec Enterprise Service Provider (ExSP), Symantec, the Original Software Manager, and Carahsoft, Symantec’s Distributor for the proposed products. Technica, as the prime contractor, will provide Symantec NetBackup SaaS using the Symantec ExSP program. In this model, Carahsoft will serve as the ExSP Distributor and Technica is the Authorized Symantec ExSP. DISA will provide the NetBackup service to its employees and authorized customers, and report usage (based on capacity) back to the Technica. Technica will be the single point of contact for usage reporting, invoicing and other contract issues. Symantec will provide support services and maintenance support directly to DISA and DISA’s end users.
