Cohesity Cloud Services, a portfolio of offerings built atop the Cohesity Data Cloud platform, radically simplifies the way data is backed up, vaulted, secured, governed, and analyzed. It provides capacity-based and (in some offerings) user-based pricing, eliminates infrastructure and silos, and consolidates data from multiple use cases, such as data backup and recovery, cyber vaulting, disaster recovery, threat intelligence, and ML-powered data classification—all through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery model.
The Cohesity Cloud Services portfolio includes:
Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a service, which provides backup and recovery capabilities (BaaS) for cloud-native, SaaS, and on-premises data sources
Cohesity FortKnox, a modern cyber vaulting solution
Cohesity DataHawk, an all-in-one solution for advanced threat intelligence and scanning, cyber vaulting, and ML-powered data classification
Cohesity SiteContinuity, a SaaS-based automated disaster recovery failover and failback orchestration to the AWS public cloud for disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS).
Customers access and use all Cloud Services offerings, including DataProtect, directly through the Cohesity Helios management global control plane.

Your data is secured both in transit and at rest—and we give you the option to manage your own encryption keys or have our service manage them for you. For more information, visit our Trust Center.
The Cohesity Data Cloud platform in which Cloud Services offerings run is SOC 2 Type II certified on the Security, Availability, and Confidentiality Trust Services Categories. Cohesity DataProtect maintains Common Criteria EAL2 and FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certificates. Additionally, Cohesity can make available a standard Business Associate Addendum (BAA) for organizations with applicable HIPAA compliance requirements.
Yes. DataProtect delivered as a service can be used with customer-managed Cohesity instances. The Helios global control plane provides a single view to manage and control all self-managed and Cohesity-managed services, including DataProtect, under one interface.
Cohesity customers can protect a range of cloud-native, SaaS, and on-prem data sources with DataProtect delivered as a service, which continues to expand. For more information, review the service data sheet.
A 30-day retention policy is included by default. If you require a different retention period we have custom options to meet your needs. Please contact us for more details.
Cohesity guarantees that DataProtect delivered as a service has an availability SLA of 99.9%. You can define your own backup SLAs and monitor performance through the Helios management GUI. Please refer to our Service Level Agreement for more details.
Customers will be billed based on the front end terabyte (TB) capacity used on the data sources being protected. For example, if you have a 1 TB provisioned disk volume with 95 GB of files to back up, 95 GB will count towards your capacity subscription. You can subscribe to as little as 1 TB of capacity.
For backups of Microsoft 365 data, we offer per-user pricing as an alternative option to capacity-based pricing. The highest number of Users’ accounts concurrently consuming the service during a specified period of measure cannot exceed the number of licensed Users for that period. Inactive Users in a particular billing period are not included in the User count.
The amount of data backed up can be retained for as long as you are a customer of the applicable service. Per-user pricing can only be used for Microsoft 365 data at present, and can be licensed together with capacity-based pricing when used with other data sources. You cannot mix per-user pricing with capacity-based pricing for Microsoft 365 data and must choose one option or the other. Please refer to our Scope of SaaS Offerings for full details and applicable terms

DataProtect delivered as a service provides enterprise grade backup, is part of a true hybrid operational experience, and is part of a much more comprehensive Cloud Services portfolio of offerings, so you can do more with your data. Many others are point backup-as-a-service products that introduce more operational and data silos. Here’s more on what we offer that’s different:
True hybrid experience – Unlike other BaaS that operate in a silo, DataProtect delivered as service is built on the Cohesity Data Cloud platform and managed with the same UI as customer-managed Cohesity clusters deployed on-prem or at other locations. With Cohesity, you get simplified management across environments with a truly consistent hybrid experience.
Comprehensive data security and management – Goes beyond backup with other as-a-service offerings such as cyber vaulting, disaster recovery, threat intelligence, and ML-powered data classification.
Enterprise-grade backup and recovery – Scales on demand, provides flexible security controls, supports a wide range of cloud-native, SaaS, and on-prem workloads, and has flexible policy management to meet enterprise-level SLA and compliance.
Yes. While AWS is our preferred cloud provider for Cohesity Cloud Services, our offerings are intended to provide universal coverage for all types of data sources, whether from other cloud providers or SaaS applications. For example, we support Microsoft 365 and expect to support other cloud and SaaS sources in the future.
