WEWORK, HIGHLIGHT PARTNER TO DELIVER SECURE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT INFRASTRUCTURE TO GOVERNMENT AGENCIES

NEW YORK – With the rise of flexible work, WeWork and Highlight have partnered to provide government agencies with secure software development capabilities in support of U.S. national security.

Through this collaboration, members will have access to a complete, fully secure continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform available with their membership bundle or by adding an additional feature.

“In this post-COVID world, physical space is now a lever for talent attraction and workforce retention,” said Traug Keller, Director of Federal Business Development. Our partnership with Highlight Technologies will now provide the Department of Defense’s most innovative groups with the tools necessary to develop, deliver and use software authorized for the government in world-class workspaces across the United States.”

This builds on WeWork’s flexible workspace as a service that does not reflect the acquisition of leased office space, but a comprehensive service to provide a temporary flexible workspace that can be procured directly by agencies.

Historically, one roadblock to flexible work has been a lack of IT and security solutions tailored to federal requirements. This solution will address those concerns while absolving organizations of the resource burden they’d otherwise face when standing up and maintaining a secure software development environment.

“Whether it’s creating a new software factory or a sensitive compartmented information facility, government organizations rely on secure software production environments to build and access mission-essential tools,” said Adam McNair, Highlight President and COO. “Between WeWork and our team at Highlight, we’re providing the recipe of capabilities necessary for organizations to de-risk and scale their innovation efforts and commercial technology engagement. ”

Current WeWork members and those interested in the opportunity are encouraged to email federalsales@wework.com to learn more about the partnership and offers.
