Cohesity Cited as a Leader Based on Its Scores in Current Offering and Strategy
San Jose, Calif. – Sept. 12, 2019 –Cohesity today announced that it has been named a Leader by Forrester Research in “The Forrester Wave™: Data Resiliency Solutions, Q3 2019.” Cohesity was one of ten vendors evaluated for the Forrester Wave based on 40 criteria that examined a vendor’s current offering, strategy, and market presence. Cohesity received the highest score possible in the criterion of security and tied for the top score in the customer feedback criterion.
According to the Forrester evaluation:
“Cohesity addresses data sprawl challenges and helps firms make use of secondary data. Cohesity has taken the mass data fragmentation challenge head on…”
“Its value propositions include its consolidated secondary data management platform. The platform includes a marketplace portal where Cohesity publishes certified apps that clients can run on its infrastructure. Possible application use cases include compliance checks or analytics on otherwise dormant data.”
“Cohesity’s solution has a web interface that is easy to navigate and use and which admins can use to perform all tasks. Its policy management engine is comprehensive yet easy to use.”
“As a recent market entrant, Cohesity had the opportunity to use the latest technologies, like a NoSQL database to store operational metadata. This metadata holds the index and enables the quick search regardless of the data’s physical location. The immutable file system offers the potential to protect backup instances from ransomware attack.”
“Cohesity is not only delivering industry-leading backup and recovery solutions, but we are redefining data management by empowering organizations globally to do more with their data,” said Mohit Aron, founder and CEO, Cohesity. ”We are proud to see this, in our opinion, validated by Forrester via our selection as a leader in the report. This is the first time we were included in the Forrester Wave, and we believe being named a Leader from the beginning highlights that we are disrupting this market.”
“With the Cohesity MarketPlace, organizations can bring applications directly to the data rather than the reverse, and this opens up a new world of possibilities for customers who want to drive meaningful insights from their backup data — whether that’s preventing a ransomware attack or making it simple to move data to the cloud for disaster recovery. We will continue to make backup data more productive for customers, which will play a key role in helping customers transform their business,” said Aron.
