With today’s sophisticated cybercriminals trying to encrypt, exfiltrate, and ransom your data, the need for Zero Trust is a given. You need AI/ML-enabled defense capabilities that minimize your attack surface.
Gain a proven recovery advantage
When your business is down, every second counts. Recover VMs, databases, and file shares rapidly and at scale, without single points of failure risking VM crashes or data loss.
Streamline with one platform for the future
Get modern data security and backup, either SaaS or self-managed. Use one platform with limitless scale—so you can expand with file services, repurpose data for dev/test, and generally do more.

Comparing Cohesity vs Veritas NetBackup
Minimize risk from cyberattacks
Prevention and detection of malicious activity: Modern data immutability/WORM, 2FA/TOTP, VM vulnerability detection, ML-driven anomaly detection, one-click, industry-leading threat protection and data classification
Alert fatigue: More false positives degrade staff response time to stopping real attacks (no entropy-based anomaly detection)
Protection for in-progress backups: Closed API/RPC protocols for adapters; adapterless dump-to-NAS workflows supporting NFSv4.1 ACLs to protect from exfiltration or sabotage
Higher risk of data loss: Lower uptime/resiliency and manual policy configuration leading to less frequent and missed backups, requiring time-consuming troubleshooting
Strict access control: Quorum support for multiperson concurrence on sensitive actions
Greater risk of rogue actions: No quorum groups to prevent unilateral admin action, such as maliciously exporting data
Bank-grade cyber vaulting with Cohesity FortKnox: Immutability,Cohesity-managed key option; quorum-controlled operations, rapid restore, and time-limited network access (reducing attack surface)
Just a vendor-supplied storage bucket: Cloud vault offering only object storage aaS and requiring a customer-managed NetBackup Cloud Recovery Server
Reduce downtime with rapid recovery
Restore production and populate recovery sandboxes faster: Immediate and scalable restore of VMs and databases for faster forensics, sandboxing, and recovery
Slower recovery: Minimal live mounting of VMs only, slow snapshot consolidation processing, and single-threaded restores
Reduced downtime: Resume NAS file sharing immediately without restore, and/or rapidly restore to primary storage
Files offline longer: Can’t immediately put file shares online; slow restore to primary storage
Production-grade I/O reliability: Writes never lost, near instant recovery; not interrupted by reboot or hardware failure
VM crash risk: VMs can’t stay mounted through media server loss or reboot
Simple closed-loop SIEM, SOAR integration: Complete incident response within Palo Alto XSOAR, Cisco SecureX, Microsoft Sentinel, or Crowdstrike
Limited SIEM/SOAR integrations: No listed integrations with Palo Alto XSOAR, Cisco SecureX, or Crowdstrike
Maximize data value
Illuminate dark data: Simple cross-cluster VMnames search, and in-cluster global file search
Hard to find valuable or sensitive data: Complex add-on search
Data masking: Anonymize sensitive information before it leaves the backup repository
Compliance exposure: Dev/test workflows creating risk without masking
Single secure data management platform: Enable multiple use cases including file & object services, DR, and copy data management with reduced attack surface
Just a backup: Traditional single-purpose architecture requiring additional silos to address use cases beyond backup and recovery
Fair, transparent licensing: Subscriptions metered by the back-end capacity with easy to understand capacity reporting
Retroactive license audits and high maintenance: Must monitor front-end license use and back-end capacity; expanding and maintaining existing licenses can cost more than starting new with Cohesity
20% more space efficient than NetBackup including across cloud: Typical for most workloads due to superior sliding-window dedupe, Zstd compression1
25% more space required than Cohesity: Results from older compression methods and less precise tracking of duplicate segments
Future proof: Mix between whitebox and your choice of a supported major h/w vendor without an expensive lock-in
Forklift upgrades required: 3rd party non-scale-out repositories or homogeneous clusters requiring nodes to be replaced at once
