Citizen Potawatomi Nation protects its data—and heritage—with Cohesity FortKnox
We (then) formulated a meticulous policy to either replicate or transfer the data from our on-prem setup to Cohesity FortKnox, a virtual air-gapped data isolation and recovery solution. This step was crucial in keeping our data physically isolated from the network, making it inaccessible to online threats.”
General Manager of Infrastructure and Cloud Computing, Eastern Company
We don’t need to spend time on the nuts and bolts of backing up in the cloud because Cohesity FortKnox does it for us. I also recommend FortKnox to the companies we invest in to help them work smarter while strengthening security. A single product that can do both of those things is a winner.”
With Cohesity, we can answer ‘yes’ to new requirements for cybersecurity insurance – yes, we have immutable backups, keep a copy in the cloud, use MFA, and require multiple administrators to approve changes to backups. Without those capabilities our insurance premiums would be much higher, if we could get insurance at all."
We already had good data protection from Cohesity on-prem backups. FortKnox adds another safeguard – an air-gapped backup we can restore from in the unlikely event both of our other copies are breached. It’s fast: we restored a 20 GB VM in just two minutes.”
Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Manager, The Master Group
Cohesity FortKnox on AWS is the easiest way to maintain a secure offsite backup as part of a 3-2-1 strategy. It’s much simpler and less expensive than assigning our own staff to set up and maintain storage at a remote site or in the cloud.”
With limited staff being a top issue facing IT operations teams, SaaS-delivered solutions like FortKnox allow data vaulting practices to be implemented without the hassle of managing infrastructure and key security features such as access control. The most significant value-adds of FortKnox specifically include the ability to choose between two back-end storage targets, the option for both granular and mass recoveries, and Cohesity's Quorum two-person concurrence and full data cataloging and search capabilities."

Protect and recover against ransomware with threat protection, cyber vaulting, and ML-powered data classification—by identifying threats, assessing attack impact, and confidently recovering critical data.
A cyber vault is an offsite copy of data that’s isolated physically and logically from the primary and backup copies to act as an added layer of protection against ransomware and other cyber threats. It usually has many security features to prevent access to and tampering with vault data.
Data isolation is the best practice of physically, logically, and operationally separating a copy of data from the primary copy to act as a backup in case of data loss or a cybersecurity attack.
Cyber vaulting helps provide a clean “gold” copy of data for recovery in case of data loss or a security breach—such as ransomware—that compromises the primary data. It may also help secure cybersecurity insurance and fulfill governance and compliance requirements.
