“The total Cohesity experience — security options, SaaS model, and support — has been just what we’d hoped for. If we went back in time, we’d make the same decision.”

Nasdaq is becoming a cloud-centric company, shifting to software as a service (SaaS) wherever practical. After migrating to Microsoft 365, the company wanted a cloud-based, fully managed backup solution – easy to use, secure, and compliant with data-residency regulations.
When the company adopted Microsoft 365, the Exchange team took a fresh look at its backup solution. The new cloud-based backup solution also had to be easy to use, enabling a four-person team to manage 6,000 M365 accounts and about 100 remaining Exchange accounts for sensitive applications that don’t touch the internet.
After comparing leading cloud-based backup solutions, Nasdaq selected Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a service for M365, using it alongside Cohesity DataProtect for on-prem Exchange data. The Cohesity solution was ready to go just one month after the decision. Today Nasdaq uses it to back up 6,000 M365 mailboxes, 45 TB of OneDrive and Teams data, and 100 Exchange mailboxes.
From a single interface Nasdaq manages backups and restores for both M365 and Exchange data. Lost emails and calendars are restored in minutes instead of days. Global compliance reporting is simpler. In addition, Cohesity’s industry-leading deduplication lowers cloud storage costs.
