Data Solutions for Government

  • Restore Order

    Agencies have too much information, so they throw it into data centers like old clothes into a closet, vowing to organize it another day. That day is here. Information management solutions help agencies sort through the data clutter. Federal IT leaders face numerous challenges – tight budgets, inefficient legacy systems, meeting Federal mandates – and Information Governance and Information Availability programs often are a lower priority. That’s beginning to change because agencies understand that Information Governance and Information Availability reduce risk, increase efficiency, and save money. A progressive approach to information management helps agencies get data under control.

    Information Governance and Information Availability help agencies overcome data chaos. Veritas empowers agencies to recognize the business value of information management. 

Information Governance

  • Data Insight

    Data Loss Prevention Data Insight Enterprise features 

    All the features of Data Insight for Storage, plus:

    • Data Owner Identification – tracks file usage and reports the top five users of sensitive data for files found as part of a Data Loss Prevention Network Discover scan.
    • Risk Scoring – combines Data Loss Prevention discovery of sensitive data with identification of file access permissions to prioritize folders that are at greatest risk.
    • Data Access Visualization and History – records all file usage and provides multiple views into file activity with an ability to monitor sensitive files and directories. 
    • Access Alerts - identify suspicious or irregular access of sensitive files and folders.
  • eDiscovery

    The Veritas eDiscovery Platform is the leading enterprise eDiscovery solution that enables enterprises, governments, and law firms to manage legal, regulatory, and investigative matters using a single application. The Veritas eDiscovery Platform was purpose-built for eDiscovery, making it easy for organizations to defensibly solve real-world challenges across the entire eDiscovery lifecycle from legal hold and collections through analysis, review, and production. Veritas eDiscovery Platform can be rapidly deployed in-house or hosted by a certified service provider.

  • Enterprise Vault

    Planning for, managing, and storing an explosion of information is only part of the overall information management and governance challenge. Regardless of whether your organization is regulated or not, there is still a growing need to search electronic information for other reasons including: internal audits, HR requests, compliance supervision, and legal cases. Archiving to a central repository helps you to be more proactive and prepared when it comes to search and eDiscovery because it’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when.

    As the most widely deployed archiving solution in the market, with over 10 years’ experience, Veritas Enterprise Vault has enabled tens of thousands customers to better store, manage, and discover their email and electronic files.

    Features and benefits

    • Enterprise information archive—Archive less-frequently accessed information across multiple content sources, including Microsoft® Exchange and SharePoint®, IBM Domino® and file servers, to reclaim and reuse expensive storage resources.
    • Flexible .PST and .NSF migration—Automatically locate and migrate existing .PST and .NSF files into the archive, to help regain control of the information contained within those files. Central control of .PST and .NSF files streamlines eDiscovery and reduces storage costs, backup windows, and risk associated with lost or stolen files.
    • Seamless end user experience—Provide easy access to archived information anytime, anywhere via users’ existing tools (Microsoft Outlook®, SharePoint, etc.); while online, disconnected from the network, or on mobile devices.
    • Flexible classification—Empower your end users to move individual email into unique retention folders based on parameters set forth by your organization, or analyze Exchange email content and metadata with Veritas Enterprise Vault™ Data Classification Services to automatically determine the archive and retention strategy for that message and attachment. Classification tags may also be assigned to flag the message for supervisory review within Veritas Enterprise Vault™ Compliance Accelerator. These tags are also searchable and can be used as filters within Veritas Enterprise Vault™ Discovery Accelerator and the Veritas™ eDiscovery Platform.
    • Intuitive electronic discovery with guided review—Improve the identification and review of archived content with advanced search, conversation threading, and bulk marking and tagging. Relevant items are easily preserved within the archive for legal hold. Integration with the eDiscovery Platform expands search to non-archived content and allows for more granular review and analysis.
    • Simplified installation and administration—Get Enterprise Vault up and running in minutes and easily manage it day-to-day with wizards and dashboards.
    • Low total cost of ownership—Maintain an efficient archive by using flexible deployment options (physical or virtual), storage tiering, compression, and global deduplication.

Multi-Vendor Hybrid Cloud

  • Hybrid Cloud

    Hybrid clouds are business services that combine private (on premises) and public (off premises) cloud implementations. In these hybrid architectures, workloads, data, and services flow seamlessly between private and public cloud infrastructures to maximize speed, flexibility, and agility, while still preserving management control.

Storage Management

  • Flexible Storage Sharing

    Veritas InfoScale enables customers to take their distributed, high performance, and highly available file systems and combine them with the latest storage and networking technologies with its Flexible Storage Sharing (FSS) feature. Flexible Storage Sharing allows customers to unlock the true potential of Direct Attached Storage (DAS), without sacrificing performance or availability to drive up to 4x the performance at less than 20 percent of the cost of a traditional Storage Area Network (SAN) environment. FSS is not limited to a “DAS-only” deployment but can be used in conjunction with SAN in a hybrid deployment allowing the existing SAN hardware to also be used.

  • InfoScale Operations Manager

    Veritas InfoScale Operations Manager is a role-based, graphical management framework that not only provides an easy-to-use interface for the core InfoScale products but also adds value to the offerings. Key elements include:

    • Centralized visibility and control
    • Automated operations
    • Comprehensive reports
    • Risk mitigation and troubleshooting
    • WEB-API for third party integration

About the IT Schedule 70 FITARA Enhancement Program

In 2015, Congress passed the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA), which required GSA to put in place enterprise-wide agreements to support federal agencies in their acquisition of software. In 2016, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), further refined this requirement by mandating that GSA stand up at least two governmentwide software agreements annually, aimed at reducing costs and bringing innovative technology to the federal government through GSA’s IT Schedule 70.

With the enormous amount of pressure on agencies, there is a need for innovation and technology advances to help the government ensure the success of the bill.

 

  • The Federal Challenge

    The federal government must deal with two connected, yet separate data-centric conditions that challenge leadership’s ability to make intelligent, data-driven decisions: mission assurance and readiness.

    On one hand, the government is creating and ingesting data at an unprecedented rate. The Internet of Things (IoT), connected “smart” devices, critical applications, back-office systems and logistics-linked RFID tags are constantly interacting and collecting thousands of gigabytes of data. According to IDC, there were 2 billion devices in 2006 with a projected 200 billion in 2020 and 90 percent of the world’s data was created in the last two years. This tsunami of data overwhelms the government’s ability to manage, protect, effectively find, parse and use data in an efficient/effective way. Plus doing so is extremely expensive, and the problem will only intensify.

    The immediate need to make intelligent, data-driven decisions has never been greater. Every agency is required to have a rapid but accurate COVID-19 response with regard to mission readiness. Mission-centric examples include mobility status/availability—workers at risk, workers with medical backgrounds and employees in mission-critical positions. What impact will this era of “working from home” impose on the agency’s mission to support veterans, hospitals, medical trial research and outcomes, just to name a few. What is your agency’s priority? And where is the data in this current state of, “We need it now”?

    How to Get Started

    Addressing these problems calls for enterprise-scale data governance. Effective data governance begins with understanding what data you have and where it resides. In other words, there is a need for a real-time inventory and data catalog capable of expanding at enterprise scale. Consider the following key functionality of any such solution:

    • Scale and growth—Software and appliances capable of accommodating the agency’s current enterprise scale (volume) and future growth to the multi-exabyte scale.
    • Data-centric and IT agnostic—The ability to catalog and track all data types, including structured and unstructured data, file/block or object-stored data, imagery, video and voice in any/all formats and in any/all storage infrastructures.
    • Broad, unified data governance
      • Visibility—The ability to see and report on all data types, usage frameworks and storage locations.
      • Accessibility—Defined access and storage paths that include trusted, authorized permissions.
      • Intelligence—Organized and metadata-tagged data that enables you to make data-driven decisions within your agency’s mission context.
      • Linked—Synchronized data that provides the right data across multiple applications and is highly available anytime, anywhere. Streamlined big data analytics that delivers quality data insights that support your agency’s mission.
      • Trusted—Verified data integrity and protection that includes cyber-defense and disaster protection/recovery.
      • Security—The ability to build a dynamic data management strategy that increases your agency’s security posture and ensures your data is available when you need it, protected across the enterprise and provides insights that help make data-driven decisions and reduce costs while optimizing the infrastructure.
    • Policy-aligned—Intelligent, coordinated data policies and best practices that support the Federal Data Strategy 2020 Action Plan.
  • The Veritas Solution

    Due to our current national pandemic, we have all been forced to alter the way we live and work. Within this changing landscape, our needs have shifted because most of us are now required to telework and find new ways to stay connected and increase productivity.

    With most federal employees teleworking, there is a need for technology solutions that can support effective data backup, recovery and protection for mission-critical work to continue despite the circumstances.

    With Veritas, you can be confident in the ability to scale and accommodate an exabyte-level future where your agency isn’t painted into a corner—architecturally, programmatically, policy-wise or otherwise. Consider a future-proof, enterprise-scalable but sustainable path to data governance success that focuses first on data visibility, coupled with discoverability at scale. Then explore the IT-agnostic, site-independent solutions Veritas provides.
