Data security and management provider Cohesity is expanding its partnership with Microsoft through integrations of its services and solutions within Microsoft products to help IT and security operations leaders defend against cyberthreats.
Cohesity’s backup and recovery solution, DataProtect, is now integrated with Microsoft Sentinel, giving joint customers streamlined access to incident reporting and ransomware alerts.
Cohesity’s cloud services are also now available on Microsoft Azure, which will enable customers to secure data across hybrid environments. This includes FortKnox, a software-as-a-service cyber vaulting service. In addition, integration with Azure Active Directory with multi-factor authentication will allow customers to safely manage and access Cohesity products.
Customers will also be able to get actionable data intelligence across the Microsoft environment through Cohesity’s data classification solution, which is powered by BigID and integrated with Microsoft Purview.
Cohesity is also combining its artificial intelligence-ready data structure with OpenAI to generate AI initiatives around threat detection, classification, anomaly detection and more.
“Cohesity is integrating with Microsoft’s broad platforms across security, cloud and AI – all in order to help joint customers secure and protect their data against escalating cyberattacks,” said Sanjay Poonen, CEO and president of Cohesity. “This expanded collaboration will make it simple for thousands of Microsoft customers and ecosystem partners to access Cohesity’s award-winning platform, including its differentiated benefits of scalability, simplicity and security, in hybrid-cloud or multi-cloud scenarios.”
For those wanting to learn more about the partnership and the future of data security, AI and the cloud, Cohesity hosted a spotlight on YouTube hosted by Poonen, as well as Microsoft’s executive vice president of security Charlie Bell, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s AI platform Eric Boyd and vice president of Azure Jürgen Willis.
