Cohesity, a leader in AI-powered data security and management, today announced that it has been positioned as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Cyber Recovery 2023 Vendor Assessment (doc #US49787923, October 2023). This is the first year of this assessment that is based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) framework. To be included in the report, vendors must be able to address at least one pillar of the NIST cyber recovery framework beyond “Respond” and “Recover,” including “Identify,” “Protect,” or “Detect.” Cohesity solutions recognize all five pillars of the NIST framework.
“Cohesity has strong capabilities in core data protection and has pivoted quickly and effectively into cyber-resilience with a product portfolio designed to assist customers in cyber preparedness, including vulnerability scanning, early detection, incident response, and forensic analysis to orchestrated recovery. It also has AI-based anomaly detection that analyses backup data to compute the odds of an anomaly and identify novel or emergent trends,” said Phil Goodwin, IDC MarketScape author and Research Vice President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group.
Cohesity was recognized for several strengths, including:
- Broad-ranging cybersecurity and recovery capabilities without forgetting the fundamentals of backup/recovery and disaster recovery
- Well-integrated user interface that is intuitive to use and seamlessly incorporates third-party intellectual property
- Strong “upstream” ecosystem development and IP leverage via the Data Security Alliance
- Strong “downstream” ecosystem of relationships, including AWS and IBM
- Zero trust concepts extensively embedded in the solution
The report states, “Cohesity’s product portfolio is designed to assist customers in cyber preparedness, including vulnerability scanning, early detection, incident response, and forensic analysis to orchestrated recovery. It also has ML-based anomaly detection that analyses backup data to compute the odds of an anomaly and identify novel or emergent threats.”
“At Cohesity, we believe that security and simplicity are the core tenets of modern data security and management. Our technology radically simplifies how enterprises secure and manage their data and unlock limitless value,” said Amith Nair, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Cohesity. “We’re pleased to be named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape report, as we believe it’s a testament to our commitment to providing our customers with a modern data management solution that supports the evolving threat landscape.”
Cohesity, Building Three Pillars to Protect Customers from Cyberattacks
As the threat of cyberattacks continues to plague organisations, it is not a matter of if, but when, sensitive data will be compromised. Equally critical to thwarting attacks is the ability to rapidly recover clean data and return business to full operation. Cohesity has addressed this challenge with a three-pronged approach. First, it offers best-in-class technology, including its award-winning, cyber vaulting service, FortKnox. Second, the Cohesity Data Cloud is an extensible platform that makes it easy to add and integrate third-party technologies, such as Tenable, zScaler, BigID, Qualys, and others. Third, Cohesity has convened a comprehensive and growing Data Security Alliance that includes an extensive set of leaders in the security market. With Cohesity’s modern data management approach, extensible platform, and Data Security Alliance, customers can protect, detect, respond, and recover from cyberattacks to maintain business continuity and minimise impact to their bottom line.
Cohesity’s three-pronged approach provides customers with a comprehensive approach to cyber resilience and business recovery. The threat of cyberattacks is not fading, and the need to enhance customers’ data protection and recovery with all the innovation the market offers is critical. To this end, seven of the top 10 banks in the US rely on Cohesity to protect and recover their data, six of the Fortune 10, and 42 of the Fortune 100.
