Cohesity Positioned by Gartner as a Visionary in the 2019 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions
Cohesity Evaluated for Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
San Jose, Calif. – Oct. 14, 2019 – Cohesity today announced that Gartner, Inc. has named the company a Visionary in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions . Gartner evaluated Cohesity among 12 total vendors in the report. Three vendors are recognized as a Visionary.
Cohesity’s vision is to empower customers around the world to do much more with backup data by solving the critical challenge of mass data fragmentation. With mass data fragmentation, massive volumes of enterprise data are spread across a myriad of locations, infrastructure silos, and management systems. The data is hard to protect, difficult to manage, and impossible to derive insights from long-term. Cohesity consolidates these silos onto one easy-to-manage platform, making it simple to back up data on-premises, in the cloud, and at the edge, as well as to bring applications directly to the data, which makes the data much more productive.
According to Gartner, “The data center backup and recovery solutions Magic Quadrant focuses on vendors that deliver backup and recovery solutions to protect enterprise data center workloads.” Gartner also stated in the report that “The data center backup and recovery market is rapidly changing as it addresses I&O leaders’ needs for simpler, more agile and cost-optimized solutions.”
“Cohesity set out to rethink backup from the ground up. We believe Gartner has recognized Cohesity for its completeness of vision because our approach to modern data management is truly unique and stands out in the industry,” said Mohit Aron, founder and CEO, Cohesity. “With Cohesity, our customers are empowered to easily backup their data, consolidate fragmented silos, decrease data copies, increase compliance readiness, and utilize applications to maximize the value of their data — all from one platform, using one user interface.”
Cohesity also has a 4.7 out of 5 overall rating in the Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions on Gartner Peer Insights, based on 276 ratings, as of 11 October 2019. The company was also named a February 2018 and November 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customer’s Choice.
Cohesity continues to build out its vision and has announced several key innovations this year:
- The unique ability to make backup data even more productive by running applications from Cohesity and third parties directly on the Cohesity DataPlatform through Cohesity MarketPlace.
- New security offerings:
- The Cohesity CyberScan application leverages backup data to discover and assess the vulnerabilities, or the security risk posture of an enterprise’s IT environment.
- The Cohesity Anti-Ransomware Solution offers a complete set of defense capabilities that protect, detect, and respond to ransomware attacks.
- Comprehensive backup, recovery, and data management for both traditional and modern workloads – including NoSQL, Hadoop, software as a service (SaaS), and containers – all on one web-scale platform.
- Enterprise-grade backup and recovery as a service for applications running on Google Cloud.
- A new application, Cohesity Runbook, that automates the process of moving workloads between on-premises data centers and the public cloud – a critical need as more organizations rely on the cloud for everything from dev/test to security to disaster recovery.
- The ability to accelerate application development by providing dev/test teams with a self-service provisioning model that gives them rapid access to backup data when they need it through the Cohesity Agile Dev and Test solution.
