SAN JOSE, Calif., 25 Aug. 2011. Adobe Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:ADBE) won from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), an operating unit of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), a contract to provide Adobe Connect Web conferencing software to enable deployed troops, support personnel, and military leaders to collaborate efficiently across locations worldwide.

Carahsoft Technology Corp., a government IT solutions provider that works in partnership with Adobe Systems Federal LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Adobe, won the multi-year contract, which is valued at more than $93 million and includes a one-year base period and subsequent one-year options extending into 2015.

Carahsoft and Adobe staff will continue to operate, maintain, and enhance the deployed Defense Connect Online (DCO) system, which includes Adobe Connect and provides Web conferencing, presence and awareness, video conferencing, and chat capabilities. DCO, used across the DOD, supports more than 500,000 registered users who use the system for in excess of 35 million Web conferencing minutes per month in aggregate.

“For the past several years, Adobe Connect has supported vital collaboration across the DOD’s complex and diverse environments,” says Rob Tarkoff, senior vice president and general manager, Digital Enterprise Solutions at Adobe. “This new contract will enable continued growth and user acceptance of Defense Connect Online as a vehicle for mission-critical, real-time communication.”
