The company said Tuesday its Cloud-First Networking portfolio is included in the DoD Information Approved Products List and designed to help government clients comply with requirements under the Modernizing Government Technology Act.
“With the Administration“™s cloud focus and information technology modernization efforts, we recognize the critical role Cloud-First Networking plays in government transformation initiatives,” said Mike Walsh, director of Big Switch’s federal business.
