On July 17th, the General Services Administration announced its agreement with Veritas Technologies to provide Federal government buyers accessible data management software solutions. The agreement is over one year in the making – a collaboration between GSA and Veritas, negotiated in accord with the IT Schedule 70 Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act Enhancement Program.

Veritas understands the distinct interests and needs of government agencies, and this new agreement with GSA provides government buyers negotiated pricing and easy access to Veritas software to improve their data management and protection while helping reach their goals for FITARA implementation.

With Veritas solutions, federal agencies will be able to migrate, protect, and move data and workloads no matter where they reside – even across multiple clouds. Providing public sector customers the ability to readily visualize and understand their data is key to supporting their IT Modernization efforts in pursuit of true digital transformation.

Referring to the GSA announcement, Veritas Senior Vice President of Americas Sales, Michael Cremen, shared, “It is this sort of attentive, knowledge-driven approach to partnership that distinguishes Veritas. This effort goes beyond our support of government customers, too – it’s evident in the company’s approach to solutions partnerships across the U.S.”

I could not agree more. Our customers need a data management partner that will not only advise them through the solution selection process, but long after the contract is signed. A true partner – that’s Veritas.

“The offering is a significant step forward in supporting GSA’s goals under category management and it will help federal agencies protect high value assets, while also supporting faster transition to a cloud-smart adoption,” said Katy Ely, assistant commissioner for the Office of Information Technology Category from the Federal Acquisition Service of GSA in the July 17th announcement.

I believe I speak for all of us at Veritas when I express pride in seeing the agreement come to light. We’re pleased to support the transition to modern data management and protection platforms in the public sector.

Excellent work, #TeamVtas!
