Cohesity Goes Beyond Zero Trust With New SaaS Solutions Designed to Address Increasingly Sophisticated Ransomware Attacks

New Data Management as a Service Offerings Complement Cohesity’s Threat Defense Architecture and Can Help Customers Win the War Against Ransomware

San Jose, Calif. – October 19, 2021 – Cohesity today announced at its inaugural user conference, Cohesity Connect, new security and governance offerings designed to keep customers a step ahead of bad actors launching incredibly sophisticated ransomware attacks. 

In the early days, cyber criminals initially focused on encrypting production data. Cohesity countered by enabling customers to rapidly restore from backup data. Then, criminals started to destroy or encrypt backups. Cohesity countered with immutability. Now, bad actors are exfiltrating the data and threatening to post it on the dark web. 

To help customers address the latest threats, Cohesity unveiled the following SaaS offerings, which will be housed under the company’s Data Management as a Service portfolio of Cohesity-managed solutions: 

These offerings will be key additions to the company’s comprehensive Threat Defense architecture that showcases how Cohesity and a wide range of ecosystem partners help customers address the latest cyber threats, including ransomware.

“Cyber criminals are rapidly becoming more sophisticated and aggressive, and the damage ransomware attacks cause to organizations can be catastrophic in terms of costs and brand reputation,” said Matt Waxman, vice president of product management, Cohesity. “Relying on legacy backup as an insurance policy no longer is sufficient. Customers need next-gen technology that makes it easy to identify sensitive data, detect anomalies, isolate data, and stay ahead of modern threats. That’s what we’re focused on providing via our solutions and our Threat Defense architecture.”  

Cohesity DataGovern 

DataGovern, available now for early access preview, uniquely brings together data security and data governance in a single SaaS offering that enables customers to:

This service will offer the following benefits to customers: 

Threat Defense: An Architecture for an Ever-Evolving Threat Landscape 

These new SaaS offerings both draw from and contribute to Cohesity’s Threat Defense data security architecture. This multi-layered architecture brings together a range of products, services, and capabilities from Cohesity and ecosystem partners to help customers identify threats via AI and ML, protect their data, and easily recover in the event of a cyberattack.

“Providing data security and a fast response to attacks are critical as we jointly help customers combat cybercrime,” said Rishi Bhargava, vice president Product Strategy for Cortex XSOAR, Palo Alto Networks. “Through Cohesity’s integration into the Cortex™ XSOAR platform, we are helping our mutual customers combat ransomware attacks by quickly detecting and responding to critical data security alerts.”
