Global Broadband Solutions Receives HUBZone Certification
LEESBURG, VA, June 9, 2020 -- Global Broadband Solutions, LLC, (GBS), a Loudoun County, Virginia-based advanced telecommunications services small business, announced that it has been qualified by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) as a Certified Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Company. The SBA program encourages economic development by helping small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to Federal procurement opportunities.
Located in the heart of the Leesburg, Virginia’s HUBZone, GBS may now more effectively help U.S. Federal Agencies meet their statuary HUBZone contracting goals by providing a wide range of Information Technology solutions, Cyber Security offerings, and complex project management services.
“GBS is honored to have been granted SBA HUBZone Certification. We are very pleased to support job creation in HUBZone communities and look forward to expanding GBS services to many Government Agencies. The GBS Team, consisting of GBS employees, contractors and suppliers, are also excited because we will all have greater opportunity to use our expertise to develop and deliver innovative, secure, and cost-effective solutions to a much broader Government market,” shared Nicholas Koopalethes, Chief Executive Officer.
Safeguarding sensitive client information according to Federally recommended cybersecurity best practices is a key priority for GBS. In December 2019, GBS was awarded a patent for its Submarine Cable Document Management System, “SCDMS.” After years of research and development, GBS remains one of the very few small businesses serving the Federal market that stores and administers its clients’ sensitive, unclassified information in a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SP 800-171 compliant system.
“GBS has made significant investments to achieve NIST SP 800-171 compliance and prepare for CMMC Level 3 in order to provide secure management of information and project data for our government customers,” said Peter Sillitto, Chief Operating Officer. “Our specially designed and patented, NIST compliant and secure cloud-based service, SCDMS® is a key cybersecurity capability we plan to offer to many more Government customers through the benefit of our HUBZone Certification.”
