The CoN accreditation involves an extensive assessment and ensures Simpana 9 software, built on CommVault's Solving Forward® architecture, meets or exceeds U.S. Army requirements for reliability, security, architecture and integration with the Army Enterprise Infrastructure Network which includes the National Guard, Army Reserve and several Department of Defense (DoD) organizations.

Government agencies have long relied on CommVault to help them meet their data management challenges by providing tightly integrated capabilities in a single software platform including backup and recovery, archive, deduplication, snapshot integration and search across any application—whether physical, virtual or the cloud—from the data center to the edge.  With Simpana 9 software, federal, state and local governments can transform how they protect, manage and access their data to increase efficiency, enable business agility and reduce risk.

In addition, the National Institute of Standards and Technology has validated Simpana 9 software to be in compliance with Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2. The FIPS 140-2 U.S. government standard ensures CommVault Simpana 9 software uses sound security practices, such as approved, strong encryption algorithms and methods.  As organizations increasingly demand that data at rest be encrypted to protect against loss or theft, FIPS 140-2 validation certifies that CommVault Simpana 9 software meet the U.S. federal government requirements for quality and security.
