SAN FRANCISCO—September 1, 2022 — Cohesity, a leader in next-gen data management, announced today that the Cohesity FortKnox software as a service (SaaS) data isolation and recovery solution won Best of Show across all categories and Gold in the Business Continuity and Data Protection category at VMware Explore 2022.
TechTarget’s Best of VMware Explore Awards recognize the most outstanding products at VMware’s annual user conference. Evaluated by a team of editors, independent analysts, consultants and users, the judges awarded Cohesity FortKnox as the top solution in a category that highlights innovations in a variety of areas including backup and recovery and data replication in private or public cloud environments.
Cohesity FortKnox is a modern data isolation and recovery solution that can play a critical role in helping organizations minimize the impact of cyber attacks such as ransomware. It is designed to provide an additional layer of off-site protection while dramatically simplifying operations and lowering costs compared to magnetic-tape and self-managed data vaults.
“In today’s era of non-stop and increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks, winning Best of Show as well as the Gold Award for our Cohesity FortKnox SaaS solution is a testament to the innovation Cohesity provides to customers in data security, data management, and cloud,” said Lynn Lucas, chief marketing officer, Cohesity. “As cyberattacks continue to pose threats, businesses need a solution like FortKnox to provide an extra layer of protection for critical data and to accelerate recovery if the unfortunate happens.”

Additionally, Cohesity FortKnox helps ITOps maximize their ROI, simplify operations, and serves as an additional defense against the sophisticated ransomware attacks they increasingly fight alongside their InfoSec counterparts.
