Cohesity Named a Leader in Backup and Recovery Software Solutions Gartner Enterprise

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions has positioned Cohesity in the Leaders Quadrant for the second year in a row.

Cohesity was rated a Leader for its ability to execute and completeness of vision.

Gartner’s analysis is based on the vendors’ established market presence, financial performance, thought leadership and intellectual property, and “well-articulated plans to improve recovery capabilities, improve ease of deployment and administration, and increase their scalability and product breadth”.

Backup and recovery solutions are considered by Gartner to be those that capture a backup of an enterprise workload and then write the data to a secondary storage device for recovery after data loss.

Lynn Lucas, Chief Marketing Officer of Cohesity, says Gartner’s recognition of Cohesity as a leader is a testament to the company’s strengths in delivering next-generation data management.

“[This] starts by helping organizations protect their data and recover quickly from ransomware attacks – critically important in today’s world.

Lucas adds, “Add that to the ability to easily back up, retrieve, and manage data across a multitude of use cases – in the data center, edge, cloud, or through a service, all on a single platform – it’s radical simplicity at its best.

This year, the company focused on ransomware recovery and protection, backup as a service (BaaS), and automated disaster recovery.

Cohesity BaaS is delivered through Cohesity DataProtect, a software as a service (SaaS) offering available in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Canada and the United States. In six months, Cohesity extended workload protection to platforms such as Amazon EC2 virtual instances and compute infrastructure, Amazon RDS cloud databases, Microsoft Exchange Online, OneDrive and Teams, SQL Server and VMware.

Cohesity SiteContinuity provides automated data recovery through its integration with Cohesity snapshot-based backup, continuous data protection, and automated failover/failback orchestration capabilities.

The web-scale solution protects applications across tiers, service levels, and locations on a single platform. The company says this helps address enterprise concerns about data loss from ransomware attacks, natural disasters, and human error. It also allows for strict service level agreements.

Cohesity was also recognized as the Customers’ Choice in the Gartner Peer Insights report “Voice of the Customer”: Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions (January 2021). The report is based on verified reviews from customers who have deployed the solutions.
