ThunderCat Technology is a trusted partner of Virginia ABC, providing valuable information technology (IT) products to the Authority. As a service-disabled veteran-owned small business, ThunderCat’s mission is to help organizations innovate and excel, and they approach each engagement with integrity and commitment. ThunderCat was founded in 2008 and named after the CEO Tom “ThunderCat 6” Deierlein, a former U.S. Army Major and combat wounded Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran. ThunderCat has been named to the TechElite250 list for the last seven years. That means the sales staff and technical team possess multiple top tier certifications and they have tested, proven knowledge across the stack, including data storage, cyber, networking, and cloud transformations.
ThunderCat also differentiates itself by manufacturer mix, its innovative ability to integrate specific technologies, and its capacity to re-provision or optimize existing resources for federal and commercial customers. ThunderCat believes that conducting business with the Commonwealth of Virginia and its various agencies is a privilege and not a right and they feel blessed to have the opportunity to do so. As a business that resides in Reston, VA, ThunderCat notes that it is very fulfilling to offer the skills of its talented staff to the agencies that in turn serve the citizens of the Commonwealth.
