Cohesity Authorizes Partners to Deliver Next-Gen Data Management Solutions
Due to the complexity of today’s data management workloads, customers need installation and implementation support more than ever. That’s why today, we are pleased to announce that we are expanding the Cohesity Partner Program by offering Professional Services (PS) Authorization for partners. The new Cohesity PS Authorization officially recognizes, enables, and supports partners delivering partner-branded, Cohesity-focused PS to our mutual customers around the globe. The authorizations start with Cohesity DataProtect. Additional solution authorizations are coming soon.
Cybersecurity threats are on the rise, and customers are looking for ways to protect, back up, and recover their data in the event of a breach. Organizations can’t take risks with their valuable data. By working with an authorized partner, teams can be confident they are working with partners that are trained and authorized by Cohesity for PS delivery. Our partners see this as a big step forward in both supporting their customers in a more efficient way and building end-to-end Cohesity practices.
“We see Cohesity as a leader in next-gen data management, offering innovative cyber resilient solutions to address customers’ modern-day challenges. Their commitment to customers through this PS Authorization enables us to strategically grow our Cohesity-focused business.” -Bill O’Brien, Director, Data Center Storage and Data Protection, AHEAD
Supporting Customer and Partner Success
We’ve developed a comprehensive framework so customers have a seamless experience working with our authorized partners. From pre-sales to post-sales and installation through implementation, we train and support our partners the same as we do our own PS team with:
Training & Certification: Cohesity Academy offers installation and implementation coursework along with exams for partners to achieve industry-recognized certifications.
Hands-on Enablement: We provide direct access to the Cohesity PS team through the PS Engagement Desk as well as shadowing opportunities and knowledge sharing.
Dedicated Tools & Resources: We grant special access to the Cohesity Partner Portal with dedicated documentation, best practices, materials, tools and proven methodologies straight from the Cohesity PS team.
Brand Recognition & Endorsement: Partner companies that meet our authorization requirements receive a Cohesity PS Authorized Professional Services badge and recognition on Cohesity.com. Individuals who complete certifications receive a badge to share on their social and professional channels.
The Journey to Next-Gen Data Management
Authorization is a significant milestone for Cohesity and builds on our partner investments. Partners that achieve multiple authorizations become extremely valuable to Cohesity and to our customers.
“Cohesity continues to enhance its partner program to increase opportunities for partners. Customers look for partners that achieve vendor endorsement to deliver services. The Cohesity PS Authorization is a valuable recognition of our Cohesity services capabilities.” – Michael Stempf, Data Protection & Information Management Practice Owner, Sirius
Cohesity authorization touches nearly every aspect of our partner ecosystem – resellers, service providers, distributors, GSIs as well as our technology alliances. Along with delivering complete solutions, it’s also a way for partners to deepen their customer relationships and differentiate themselves in the market.
“We use a consultative approach to deliver complete solutions to customers. Cohesity’s approach to modern data management enables a broad range of services offerings for us and we are excited to partner with Cohesity to expand our services portfolio with the PS Authorization.” – Douglas Austin, Director, DataCenter, Trace3
Cohesity is committed to helping our customers adopt a next-gen data management architecture. Given the critical importance of modern data management initiatives, Cohesity focuses on partners that not only meet our elevated professional standards but also understand our customers’ needs. We’ve built a partner ecosystem that simplifies complex solutions for more efficient and effective deployments overall.
