For the first time in two years, industry leaders from all over the world gathered in Las Vegas for AWS re:Invent 2021. After attending multiple virtual events from behind a computer screen, re:Invent attendees were finally to attend in-person (with virtual sessions available as well) and hear from product experts about current trends and product roadmaps, while experiencing the latest and greatest in product innovations at the re:Invent Expo.
AWS re:Invent kicked off with CEO Adam Selipsy taking the stage during the keynote to address several key initiatives for the upcoming year, including:
Throughout the event, Cohesity was able to be front and center with customers and prospects to drive interesting engagements and discussions. And, it has become clear that battling ransomware and cybercriminals is at the top of everyone’s list.
Cohesity Principal Technologist Theresa Miller led a breakout session early on in the week, where she discussed how to effectively govern data access and detect unauthorized data use. It was no surprise to learn that as cyberattacks occur more often and become more sophisticated, businesses need to be able to easily identify compromised data and recover quickly at scale. And that is where Cohesity comes in, by enabling organizations to take advantage of a next-gen data management platform that protects your business through effective data backup, governance and rapid recovery of key workloads.
Cohesity Vice President of Product Marketing, Chris Wiborg, had an exciting CUBE interview where he discussed how Cohesity is responding to the growing threat of ransomware attacks. Data management is becoming an important component of an organization’s security strategy, and as a result, businesses want to ensure that they have an effective backup and recovery strategy in place. In fact for some organizations, backup and recovery is the second most important initiative on their priority spend list, right behind end-point security. As a result, businesses are seeing a true evolution in the relationship between SecOps and IT Operations teams, who are now working together to prevent ransomware attacks, rather than “playing in parallel” while focusing on their individual charters.
Throughout the Expo, Cohesity’s product experts delivered great presentations focusing on ransomware, our growing Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) portfolio and new solutions such as Disaster Recovery as a Service, DataGovern, a cloud vaulting service currently referred to as “Project Fort Knox” and more.
Outside of the booth sessions, customers and prospects joined us to see how our solutions work first-hand, through demo stations and 1:1 customer meetings.

2021 has been a memorable year and participation at AWS re:Invent allowed many from Cohesity to meet in person with customers, prospects, and peers throughout the industry, while engaging and further collaborating with AWS on upcoming innovations. I am very excited to see what the next year brings!
