Cohesity Named a 451 Research Firestarter for Q4 2018

Web-Scale Platform for Secondary Apps and Data Recognized by Leading Analyst Firm for Its Innovation and Vision

San Jose, Calif. – Oct. 16, 2018 – Cohesity, the leader of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced it has received a 451 Firestarter award by industry analyst firm 451 Research, recognizing the firm’s contribution to innovation in the technology industry.

451 Research’s Firestarter program recognizes exceptional innovation within the information technology industry. Introduced in late 2018, the program is exclusively analyst-led, and allows its teams of technology and market experts to nominate organizations it believes are significantly contributing to the overall pace and extent of innovation in the market.

“451 Research built its reputation on helping clients understand innovation in the technology industry, and the Firestarters program is a further demonstration of this,” said Henry Baltazar, research vice president, infrastructure, at 451 Research. “We have named Cohesity a 451 Firestarter because its DataPlatform storage environment offers both data management and protection as part of a holistic approach to secondary storage, and integrated file and object storage that’s equally at home on-premises or in the public cloud. This approach has a lot of potential and needs recognition for its ingenuity.”

Cohesity gives enterprises global access, visibility, and control of their secondary apps and data on a single, web-scale platform that spans across cloud and on-premises infrastructures. This empowers organizations to break down secondary data silos across different geographic locations to achieve maximum resource efficiency and to extract new value from secondary data assets.

“This award from 451 Research analysts brings more validation to Cohesity’s innovative approach to secondary apps and data,” said Lynn Lucas, CMO, Cohesity. “Enterprises increasingly recognize the enormous benefits of bringing secondary data together on a web-scale platform and we are proud to have delivered tremendous ROI to our growing customer base.”
