Sepaton Invests in Strategic Federal Market to Meet Growing Demand for Massively Scalable Data Protection

Sepaton, Inc., maker of the world's fastest backup and recovery solution, today announced the expansion of its Federal team to address the growing need for its world-class data protection systems in large government agencies. Under the direction of Marie C. O’Brien, vice president, federal sales operations, this team has grown in recent months to address the increased demand for efficient backup, deduplication, and replication for massive data volumes among customers in Federal defense, security, and governmental agencies.

“As the only company that can address the challenging data protection needs of Federal agencies with very large and growing back up environments, we see enormous growth potential in the Federal market,” said Ms. O’Brien. “Our unique ability to backup data 400 percent faster than EMC/Data Domain, our closest competitor, and to protect up to 20 PB of data in a single system, enables our customers to meet stringent backup windows while efficiently expanding to accommodate future data growth.”
