Top 10 Blogs of 2020

2020 has been a challenging year for all of us. A global pandemic changed everything, including how we lived and worked.  New terms like “social distancing,” entered our lexicon and masks, lockdowns, and the search for Clorox wipes became part of our everyday lives. Like so many of you, we adjusted to our new work-from-home reality and continued the lightning-fast pace of building new and improved technology to meet our customers’ changing needs.  

In our second annual top 10 blog posts compilation, we’ve identified the topics that resonate with our readers: data management, ransomware defense, data protection, and the Cohesity focus on customer obsession that includes meeting customer needs with new product releases, and our goal to always deliver outstanding customer support. Grab your holiday beverage of choice and take a few minutes to check out what your peers have been reading. Happy Holidays, and bring on 2021.
