SAP GSS Announces Rebranding of Unit Focused on Specialized Needs of US National Security and Intelligence Customers

Denver, CO and Washington, DC – 2 April 2012 – US national security and critical infrastructure organizations have a new name to know in information technology, as SAP Government Support and Services (SAP GSS) and its Sybase Federal unit announce they have completed an operational realignment and are now doing business as SAP National Security Services® (SAP NS2®). The company unveiled its new identity and website at the annual DoDIIS Worldwide Conference in Denver, Colorado.

Drawing on the global strengths of SAP AG and Sybase Inc., which SAP acquired in 2010, SAP NS2 is an independent US subsidiary of SAP, structured and organized to meet the specialized needs of its customers. Prior to the realignment, SAP GSS and Sybase Federal each had a large base of US federal government and private sector customers, and now they are better positioned to go forward together.

The company offers a broad set of IT products and services including enterprise applications, analytics, and cloud solutions from SAP; database, information management and mobility solutions from Sybase; and consulting and support services from credentialed experts in the national security space.

In addition to national security and intelligence agencies, SAP NS2 also supports private companies such as defense contractors, telecom carriers, and major financial institutions that have specialized information assurance needs.

"We're bringing more competition and innovation to a sector that needs it," says Mark Testoni, President of SAP NS2. "We are a serious alternative to business as usual. National security customers can now leverage the same technology used by the Fortune 500 to manage, analyze, and mobilize massive amounts of data in real-time, in the most secure environments. All while meeting demands to consolidate operations, implement solutions quickly, and save money wherever possible."

"SAP NS2 and its parent companies enjoy the trust of national security and intelligence agencies and the leading companies in critical economic sectors," says Frances Townsend, chairman of the SAP NS2 Board of Directors and former Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. "Some of the most demanding and security-sensitive applications and databases in the world run on SAP and Sybase technology, delivered by SAP NS2."
