Key offerings and capabilities highlighted in the Forrester Wave™: Data Resilience Solution include:

  • Strong end-to-end security: Cohesity leverages APIs to integrate with popular SIEM and SOAR tools, such as Palo Alto Cortex and Cisco Secure X to integrate data protection and for an end-to-end security solution that helps “ensure that security incidents are handled properly.”
  • Cohesity FortKnox: Cohesity expands the value of data under protection by allowing organizations to clone backups into its Cohesity SmartFiles solution in case of a disaster, send highly sensitive data to a cloud vault with Cohesity FortKnox, spin up zero cost instances for sandbox testing, and improve governance of data through analytics.

  • Easy-to-use interface: With a simple management and reporting interface, Cohesity offers an easy way to track backup success and provides the ability to search across all protected data.
