Today information technology powers businesses large and small, global and local, and those who get it right are often rewarded with greater market share, profits, and sustainability in their business model. Those who don’t get it right are often forced to learn the hard and harsh lessons associated with major setbacks — never fully realizing the depth and breadth of what their business could have been.
With the stakes this high and the outcomes in any business far from certain, we believe it is no surprise Gartner recognized Cohesity as the only Customers’ Choice vendor in the recent 2021 Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions for Healthcare Industries report. During the concurrent unprecedented global COVID-19 pandemic and recession perhaps no other industry has been more overwhelmingly besieged than healthcare companies worldwide. Healthcare companies are on the front lines dealing with both the tidal wave of those affected and developing and delivering vaccines which will hopefully bring the pandemic to its end. In the middle of all of this, healthcare decision makers have entrusted Cohesity with safeguarding their data and mission-critical systems.
In 2020 healthcare systems across the globe faced the twin challenges of the pandemic and for the first time both overt and proactive ransomware attacks, which have increased to almost 1 every 10 seconds, prompting a joint warning in October 2020 from U.S. federal agencies. This left many with a simple choice: redefine the way they manage data or risk losing it forever.
With data fragmented across on-premises, cloud and edge locations, healthcare IT teams have also been challenged with eliminating silos and simplifying data management — backup, archiving, disaster recovery, file and object services, dev/test and analytics — while remaining compliant with stringent government and industry regulations. That’s why, for years, healthcare customers have been a large and core adopter of our products and solutions and a pivotal focus for the company.
For us here on the Cohesity healthcare team and for all our team members, it’s gratifying to see this recognition by the global healthcare community. We’re taking a few minutes to absorb the honor that customers have bestowed on us and then getting right back to work on what we have always been doing: giving one of the most critical industries on the planet the tools they need to simplify how they manage their data and unlock its limitless value to deliver quality data-driven care for all of us.
