By Michael Letschin • April 15, 2020

We live in interesting times. Our work lives and personal lives have been blended together by the global pandemic. Global IT teams are looking to do more with less while running critical functions remotely from home. Managing your data doesn’t mean you only find out about issues when you’re at a corporate desk. Pop-up alerts for work issues appear on your smartphone wherever you are, even on the go.

Today we’re announcing the launch of the Cohesity Helios mobile app—get the simplicity and power of Cohesity data management in the palm of your hand. It’s free, and available now for iPhone, iPad, and Android.

The Helios mobile app is configured by simply inserting your Helios API key into the app. Not sure where to get that? It’s easy:

You have the option to allow pop up messages when you get alerts from Helios so you know if you have an anomaly that is suspected ransomware or a failed backup job, regardless where you are. We made sure this was read-only so don’t worry about where you are or be concerned with changing something from your phone.

You need a simple, intuitive, and flexible way to manage a Cohesity environment. Want to see it in action? Check out the video below.
