DataEndure, formerly CMT, is pleased to announce Shahin Pirooz as its new Chief Technology Officer. Pirooz, who was voted #12 on CRN’s 2015 Top 25 Disruptors list and is an experienced technology executive and former CTO at both RiverMeadow Software and CenterBeam, joined the company effective March 14th.
“I’m excited to join the accomplished team at DataEndure,” said Pirooz, “and enable our customers to build their digital resilience as data and risks continue to grow. DataEndure has over 30 years of experience in protecting and ensuring the reliability, security, and general resilience of data. I’m thrilled to join this team, as big data is a big problem that keeps getting bigger every day.”
“Shahin has a really impressive track record, and we are excited about what he will do to drive our vision of digital resilience forward,” said Kurt Klein, CEO of DataEndure. “Shahin is a proven leader, as evidenced by his prior roles, and his extensive experience in SaaS, DevOps and service with cloud providers is extremely valuable to this team.”
“DataEndure has great set of products that our team is deeply knowledgeable about, which makes our services stand apart from all others in the industry. We take those products and create solutions with them to solve real world problems.” Pirooz stated. “It’s about more than selling products; we are the trusted advisor to our customers. They look to us to come in, understand their problem, and help articulate the right solution.”
As companies continue to experience data growth at exponential rates and see that data threatened in new ways, they see the need to connect corporate silos and move business processes to the cloud. Attaining the reliable security of that data is more difficult and more critical than ever.
“Security and cloud are big factors in every conversation we’re having,” Pirooz said. “We’re helping our customers expand, enable and consume when it comes to these two areas, and we will continue to help customers embark on that journey in a secure and resilient fashion.”
Prior to joining DataEndure, Pirooz worked at CenterBeam, which was the premiere Managed Services and Cloud Services company for the mid-market. During his 13 years at CenterBeam, Pirooz led the charge as CTO, CSO and EVP and, at different times, managed all aspects of the business. Microsoft invested in CenterBeam to get access to the company’s IP, which later became part of Office 365. Pirooz was also the CTO at RiverMeadow, where he helped solve the challenge of consuming cloud services by creating solutions to move workloads into and between clouds.
DataEndure, formerly CMT, helps companies build digital resilience so that their critical information assets are protected and available to the right people at the right time. As companies transform into digital businesses, they have more IT activity and face a higher frequency of attacks from sophisticated digital adversaries. We help our customers design and deploy an infrastructure that delivers differentiated protection for critical assets.
With DataEndure, companies will find the right combination of infrastructure, information technology solutions, and services to secure their digital assets and increase their ability to get back to business as usual when an attack does occur. We can deploy secure backup, replication, and disaster recovery solutions to help meet regulatory and governance requirements. We help our customers create effective data protection strategies while simplifying the migration of data and workloads.
