Spotlight On Security Blue Background

Confident Recovery

Watch our CEO and President Sanjay Poonen talk with Tenable CEO Amit Yoran on the topic of “confident recovery.” While recovery should be predictable to meet SLAs, it also needs to be clean—to ensure no cyber vulnerability is re-injected during data restore.

You’ll also hear insights from Cohesity Field CISO James Blake who has decades of experience in cyber resiliency and security operations for some of the world’s largest enterprises and governments.

Spotlight on Security is a new monthly talk show-style series created for security decision makers to gain insights from top experts in the security community.
