Cohesity said Monday it added 24 new federal customers in Q4 alone and the company attributes the growth of its government customer base to agencies’ data center consolidation initiatives.

Grewal added the company’s DataPlatform works to help users create value from huge amounts of data.

Cohesity expanded its public sector group by almost 300 percent over the past 12 months.

New clients include the Defense Information Systems AgencyU.S. Army, National Science Foundation and the departments of Agriculture, Justice and Veterans Affairs.
