Itential & Fierce Software Sign Distribution Agreement to Expand Network Automation & Orchestration Initiatives in the Public Sector

Agreement with trusted IT solutions aggregator reinforces Itential’s capabilities and commitment to public sector organizations

ATLANTA AUGUST 16, 2023 Itential, the leader in hybrid cloud network automation and orchestration, today announced a distribution agreement  with Fierce Software Corporation (FIERCE), a leading aggregator specializing in enterprise open-source solutions and innovative IT solutions to public sector customers. Under this new agreement, Fierce Software, based in Herndon, VA, will provide its public sector customers and reseller network access to Itential’s suite of network automation and orchestration software products.

“We look forward to working with Itential to help public sector agencies meet their network modernization and automation objectives,” said Eric Updegrove, General Manager at Fierce Software. “Itential’s product portfolio enables customers to transform and support data lifecycle management and stay ahead of network demand while maintaining compliance with government-mandated operational and security standards.”

Public sector agencies are challenged to deploy critical network infrastructure rapidly and without introducing more risk into their networks. They require an automation solution that can both automate frequent network changes and verify that those changes will stay within defined operational and security standards. Itential provides a flexible and easy-to-use network automation platform that allows network teams to efficiently transform network activities into self-serve application-driven outcomes, while ensuring the network is configured properly, always stays in compliance, and reduces human errors that lead to security lapses.


“Itential is excited to partner with Fierce Software to help public sector customers address their top priorities, including visibility into their networks, consistent uptime, network modernization and cyber defense,” said Carl Johnson, Chief Sales Officer, Itential. “From scripts to self-service, our focus on low-code automation for traditional and cloud-based networks enables network and IT teams to create automated, secured end-to-end processes.”

Itential was recently recognized in six Gartner® Hype Cycle™ reports for its innovative infrastructure automation and orchestration technology. According to the “Hype Cycle for I&O Automation, 2023,” Gartner says, “Automation is a transformational investment for infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders. Investments in this area reflect the need to enable improved speed to market, increased business agility, mitigation of security and compliance risk, optimization of performance, and minimization of service costs.”
