Tokyo, JAPAN – February 15, 2023 – Cohesity, a leader in data management and security, today announced that Cohesity DataProtect and Cohesity SmartFiles have been selected by NTT Communications Corporation (NTT COM) to provide data security solutions to its customers in Japan, and will be offered as “Wasabi Tiering for Cohesity”. This new solution helps companies solve their data management, storage, and security challenges.

Wasabi Tiering for Cohesity enables the integration of Cohesity DataProtect and Cohesity SmartFiles features with Wasabi Object Storage. Specifically, it provides the following advantages in cyber resilience, data management, and data protection:

  • Ransomware Remediation – Immutable snapshots help prevent ransomware from encrypting backup data, while machine learning-based anomaly detection can help uncover hidden threats and can play a key role in alerting customers to potential cyberattacks.
  • Rapid Recovery at Scale – In the event of a cyber-attack, natural disaster, or human error, fully hydrated snapshots can help user admins with the right privilege to rapidly restore data at a granular level and applications to any point in time.
  • A Single, Simple, and Modern Solution for Multi-cloud Environments – Cohesity’s data management platform simplifies global backup and recovery by replacing multiple point products with a single solution for on-premises or multicloud high-performance backup and recovery. The platform provides organizations with the capabilities to manage and protect traditional or modern data sources all from a single, global user interface (UI).
  • Scaling to Shrink Data and Storage Footprint & Non-Disruptive Upgrades – By eliminating complex and expensive on-premises forklift upgrades, organizations can easily scale without disruption. In addition, it can optimize storage capacity and data mobility with global variable-length deduplication and compression to help reduce customers’ data footprints and attack surface.

‘Wasabi Tiering for Cohesity’ combines Cohesity and Wasabi to store more robust backup data at a lower cost. The solution is already adopted by a large number of companies to counter ransomware attacks.

“Cohesity Japan is excited to be able to announce the integration of Cohesity solutions into NTT COM’s Wasabi Object Storage, which is designed to provide customers with enhanced data management and security capabilities to help them address their cyber resilience challenges,” said Toshiaki Ito, president and representative director, Cohesity Japan. “Our modern data management, protection, and recovery capabilities provide NTT COM’s customers with a simple and powerful solution that can enhance their security posture, improve cyber resilience, and strengthen business continuity.”

“Recently, all companies are increasingly strengthening their business continuity against ransomware and massive disasters. However, not many companies have taken effective measures,” said Shouichi Naramidate, Director of Solution Services, Business Solution Division, NTT Communications Corporation. “Wasabi Tiering for Cohesity, data security solution, was created to meet the needs and solve the issues of such companies. We will lead the improvement of the cyber resilience for Japanese companies by further working together with Cohesity for modern backup solutions.”

“We are thrilled that NTT COM will offer a Cohesity Tiering for Wasabi solution for customers in Japan,” said Aki Wakimoto, Country Manager, Wasabi Technologies Japan G.K. “Ransomware is no longer a matter of if but when. A robust data protection strategy with immutability and cloud backups may be the difference between business as usual or a full shutdown of operations. Wasabi Technologies is committed to working with partners like NTT COM and Cohesity to deliver full scale solutions to the market that bolster every organizations’ security strategy.”
