The day-to-day operational data that we manage in healthcare is too important to rely only on the backup capabilities delivered by key SaaS providers (Microsoft Exchange Online, OneDrive). We are happy with Cohesity helping us to broaden this capability! Cloud services and Cohesity give us peace of mind that we can easily recover not only mailboxes but individual files quickly and at scale whenever we need them without limitations."

We use Microsoft 365 with its built-in retention policies, but that isn’t robust backup.We count on Cohesity for robust, reliable backup of our Exchange Online user mailboxes onsite as an additional fail safe so if something happens—like ransomware—we have a way to quickly recover mailboxes, files, and sites. The added benefit is we can perform searches within a user’s mailbox and do recoveries directly from Cohesity. We expect to use Cohesity soon to also backup our SharePoint Online and Microsoft Teams environments. With corporate data shared across these collaboration platforms, it becomes increasingly critical to be able to retain and restore from our backups."
Cohesity helped us eliminate our existing storage filer and it does everything we need it to do for backups—all for 30–40% less than other data management solutions. It’s fun to work with a company actively delivering capabilities fast, like backup for Microsoft 365, that provide real value to customers at no additional cost."
