Brink’s Brazil deploys Veeam to mitigate against ransomware attacks and protect business-critical systems

Secure logistics and payment services provider bolsters business resilience and transforms backup efficiency

São Paulo, Brazil. October 28, 2022: Veeam® Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, today announced that Brink’s Brazil selected Veeam® Availability Suite™ to transform its approach to data protection and long-term data retention.

The Brink’s Company is the foremost provider of cash management, route-based secure logistics and payment solutions, ATM maintenance and international valuable transportation services in the world. Its Brazil business employs 10,000 people across 80 offices. Since these locations are spread across a huge geographical area and network connectivity can be variable, Brink’s Brazil encountered challenges managing backups of essential data.

“Data underpins all our operations, from transportation to logistics to payments,” said Caio Dalessi, IT Infrastructure Manager at Brink’s Brazil. “Previously, we relied on Veritas Backup Exec to perform daily backups to tape. This was a time and resource intensive process, which frequently exceeded our scheduled backup windows.”

Brink’s Brazil chose Veeam Backup & Replication™ initially, and recently opted to extend the deployment to Veeam Availability Suite, adding the comprehensive monitoring capabilities of Veeam ONE™. The company worked with SoftwareOne to replace its tape-based backups with Veeam software and high-performance disk arrays, accelerating backups of 500 virtual machines (VMs) with several TBs of data. Thanks to Veeam, Brink’s Brazil now backs up its systems hourly rather than daily, minimizing the business impact of an outage.

The company has also bolstered its protection against cyberattacks and boosted backup efficiency. Next on the agenda, Brink’s Brazil will connect on-premises Veeam Backup & Replication archives to Amazon Web Services (AWS). The move will slash the cost and complexity of long-term data retention for the company.

“By combining Veeam and AWS technologies, we’ll eliminate the significant expense and effort involved in buying tapes to store our long-term data archives, maintaining a secure warehouse to house the tapes, and transporting tapes from our data center to the warehouse,” said Dalessi. “We’re delighted to continue innovating with Veeam by our side.”
