The U.S. Navy’s Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services (CANES) program is the critical technology platform that enables the fleet to communicate and share information. Under a five-year, $21mm Program Level Agreement (PLA), Veeam will support PMW 160, the program office responsible for the CANES program. Veeam will support the program with configuration, maintenance, and testing of the Veeam Data Platform and Kasten K10 for Kubernetes software solutions.

“Veeam is excited to be supporting our warfighters and valued Navy partners through the delivery of our software to the CANES program,” said Gil Vega, Chief Information Security Officer. “Over the past two years, we have made significant product investments to ensure our products are the most secure and reliable data backup and recovery solutions on the market. We believe this contract with the Navy demonstrates the success of those investments.”

CANES is the Navy’s next-generation tactical afloat network. As a program of record, it consolidates and replaces existing afloat networks providing the necessary infrastructure for applications, systems, and services required to dominate the cyber warfare tactical domain. CANES represents a key aspect of the Navy's modernization planning by upgrading cybersecurity, command and control, communications, and intelligence systems afloat, and by replacing unaffordable and obsolete networks.
