As recent ransomware and cyberattacks are highlighting the potential impact of data loss to critical infrastructure, Veeam is strengthening its commitment to deliver Modern Data Protection to the U.S government with additional industry resources. “To help accelerate our federal business, we hired Earl Matthews last summer to develop and lead our VGS team, as well as join the Veeam executive staff,” said Bill Largent, CEO at Veeam. “An American government official and attorney who has held senior positions within the Department of the Army and at the White House, Earl’s expertise and impressive, extensive background in the public sector will accelerate our ability to reliably serve the current and future Modern Data Protection needs of federal customers during critical times.”
With more than 1,200 government customers, VGS is focused on the backup and protection of mission-critical data for the U.S. Department of Defense, Civilian Agencies, Native American Tribes, the Intelligence Community and Federal System Integrators. Veeam Backup & Replication™, the company’s flagship product, provides a single solution for comprehensive data management with software-defined, hardware-agnostic, and cloud-ready solutions to better serve warfighters, veterans, federal workers, and citizens without interruption. For heightened resiliency, the latest release of this solution (V11) includes bulletproof ransomware protection, increased security, Continuous Data Protection (CDP), greater cloud portability and over 200 new feature enhancements. Veeam provides unmatched protection for sensitive mission data against cyberthreats and ransomware, detecting and automatically responding to triggers in real-time to prevent further infection.
“Always protected and available data keeps the federal government operating,” said Earl Matthews, President of Veeam Government Solutions. “For the past decade, Veeam has delivered innovative data protection and data management solutions to government. We founded VGS to be even more hyper-focused on the highest level of security and nimbler in support of federal agency needs. We’re committed to continually finding better ways to serve the government, solve its biggest data challenges, and protect the information that is a strategic asset for everything government organizations do.”
