With today’s sophisticated cybercriminals trying to encrypt, exfiltrate and ransom your data, the need for zero trust is a given. You need defense-in-depth capabilities that minimize your attack surface.
When your business is down, every second counts. Recover VMs, databases, and file shares rapidly at scale, without single points of failure risking VM crashes or data loss.
Get modern data security and backup. SaaS or self-managed. When ready, expand with file services, repurpose data for dev/test, and more.
The only solution designated as a leader in all the top analyst reports.

A Leader Forrester Wave™: Data Resilience Solution Suites, Q4 2022
Prevent sabotage across all workloads: State of the art data immutability/WORM, 2FA/TOTP
WORM not customizable: Lack of flexibility to lock for different periods in archives vs. local copies raises costs, increases compliance risk, shortens protection, and discourages use
Protection for in-progress backups: Adapters use closed API/RPC protocols and adapterless dump-to-NAS workflows support NFSv4.1 ACLs; protects from exfiltration or sabotage
Higher exposure to exfiltration or sabotage: Fewer applications supported by adapters; in-progress NFS dumps may be accessed on the network for exfiltration or sabotage
Strict access control: Quorum support for multi-person concurrence on sensitive actions
Greater risk of rogue actions: No quorum controls to prevent unilateral admin action, such as maliciously exporting data
Bank-grade cyber vaulting with FortKnox: Immutability of data and keys enforced by Cohesity, quorum-controlled operations, time gapping, and rapid restore
Just a vendor-supplied storage bucket: Customer still responsible to manage multiple risks themselves, fewer layers of protection, doesn’t meet bank requirements or maximize restore speed
Restore production and populate recovery sandboxes faster: Scalable immediate restore of VMs and databases through the use of fully hydrated snapshots and deduped flash
Slower recovery: Chain-based metadata processing requiring “stitching together” of snapshots when restoring at scale
Get back to business fast: Resume NAS file sharing immediately without restore and/or rapidly restore to primary storage
Files offline longer: Cannot immediately put file shares online; slow restore to primary
Production-grade I/O reliability: Writes never lost, near instant recovery not interrupted by reboot or hardware failure
Risk of data loss: Risk of VM interruption or data loss as a result of node loss or unplanned reboot
Simple closed-loop SOAR integration: Complete incident response within Palo Alto XSOAR or Cisco SecureX
More complex incident response: Two UIs needed; Palo Alto XSOAR integration only
Speed data re-use: Rapid restore provides data immediately for dev/test or analytics
Slower access to data: Less scalable live mounting and restore
Data masking: Anonymize sensitive information before it leaves the backup repository
Potential PII exposure: Dev/test workflows create risk without masking
Single secure data management platform: Enable multiple use cases including file & object services, DR and copy data management with a reduced attack surface
Just a backup: Single-purpose architecture requires additional silos to address use cases beyond backup and recovery
Freedom to choose SaaS, self-managed or both: Same GUI for SaaS; back up on-prem workloads as well as M365; license portability between consumption models
Either/or: SaaS limited to protecting M365; separate GUI for SaaS administration and no license portability
25% more space efficient than Rubrik including across cloud: Typical for most workloads due to superior sliding-window dedupe, Zstd compression1
And yet 33% more space required than Cohesity: Typically due to fixed block sizes, limited dedupe across source types and less compression. No dedupe supported for flash media.2
Unlimited M365 user licensing option: No per-user licensing cap combined with leading dedupe passes savings onto you
Restrictive per user M365 licensing: Plus capacity restrictions and less efficient dedupe costs you more
Future proof: Mix between h/w vendors without an expensive lock-in
Hidden costs: Mixing h/w limited to single vendor, “free” refresh locks you in to inflated prices for s/w and for up-sized h/w
1Space saving estimate based on a typical mix of VMs, databases, and file shares as observed in head-to-head sizing and as relayed to us by prospects
2 When Cohesity needs 25% less space, Cohesity raw TB needed = 0.75 x Rubrik raw TB needed and thus Rubrik raw TB needed = 1.33 x Cohesity raw TB needed. Note: Rubrik charges licensing on all the raw TB accessible by the s/w, thus including any capacity that is best left unused nearly all the time for headroom purposes or won’t be needed ever, and thus including space consumed by erasure coding. Cohesity licensing is based on the net amount of data to be stored regardless of hardware size, therefore the qty of TBs of license to purchase is dramatically lower.
