Regulations and Data Change, Stay Prepared

Staying compliant shouldn’t interfere with business agility. Streamlining your data management keeps you one step ahead of stringent requirements for the handling of personal information.

Be Vigilant

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to any business controlling or processing the personally identifiable information (PII) of European Union residents.

Mass data fragmentation hurts your ability to comply with GDPR restrictions, putting your business at risk of a costly violation. How can your organization be better at backing up and managing the PII data—without blowing your budget?

Web-scale Data Management

Cohesity simplifies compliance by converging data onto a single software-defined platform. The scale-out solution’s single user interface and policy-based automation reduces IT burdens around how to best protect, minimize, locate, search for, and monitor data.

The flexibility of Cohesity’s platform is designed to give you confidence that what you have today will help you meet ever-changing requirements in the future.

Gain Speed, Agility, and Reliability

Integrate data protection into all data collection and retention activities. Reduce PII amounts and place controls over it while boosting data visibility. Monitor breaches and quickly report.

Aggregate data for faster processing

Avoid making data copies and managing multiple legacy products, reducing your threat of non-compliance.

Protect PII across workloads

Achieve unparalleled operational efficiency, at scale by consolidating data silos and sources on a single platform.

Automate for consistency

Streamline compliance with data minimization requirements by specifying data retention periods through automated policies.


Safeguard data against human error, corruption and cyberattacks.

data protection
Secure data against unauthorized access

Use Cohesity’s encryption architecture for end-to-end security and optimize your use of available resources.

Granular control with flexibility

Ensure only authorized users have access to specific data with Role-Based Access Control permissions and multi-factor authentication.

Protect against ransomware

Leverage file- or view-level WORM (write once, read many) for immutable locking. Prevent, detect, and respond fast to ransomware.


Reduce the amount of personal data your enterprise stores. Minimize data copies and automate backup with Cohesity to meet evolving data retention requirements.

Centralized management

Be more agile with Cohesity, which inherently minimizes data copies and reduces your attack footprint.

Automated policies

Establish granular control by automating PII data retention and life cycle management in Cohesity.

On-demand relocation

Efficiently move files to a single location to minimize the spread of PII across your environment.


Rely on Cohesity’s policy-based automated archiving, tiering, and replication to the cloud to ensure your enterprise has a 360 view of where it stores PII, how it got there, why, and who has access to it. Cohesity is one solution for managing your data everywhere, even in the cloud.


Schedule updates to data maps that delineate the location and movement tracking of PII, categories of PII stored, files containing PII, the retention policies of PII, and the access rights to PII.


Leverage Cohesity reports to complete Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs), as needed per GDPR requirements.


Integration with all leading public clouds, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, for easy and rapid scaling without a bolt-on cloud gateway.


Gain insights with Cohesity search and analytics. Discover, easily report on, and if necessary, delete PII you have stored.

Google-like capabilities

Search within unstructured data for PII categories. Input patterns and their variations or file types to scan using templates.


Report search results in txt file format or integrate with third-party data visualization or analytics tools.

cohesity advantage
Build custom analytics apps

Inject custom code to run data processing jobs on stored data using Cohesity App SDKs.


Effectively mitigate threats. Yet, if intrusion occurs, trust Cohesity’s reporting to efficiently validate your compliance.

White Lists

Prevent portability of PII using White Lists.


Receive notifications when data is tiered, archived, or replicated to a non-Cohesity target.


Export cluster- and system-level audit logs for additional analytics and breach detection.


We found a clear benefit to the simple scale-out design of Cohesity. It was an obvious advantage that the Cohesity architecture was based on hyperconverged nodes of both compute and storage.
