Helios enables IT staff to monitor data and receive anomaly alerts through a smartphone
Microsoft partner Cohesity is to introduce a new mobile application called Helios to enable access to its enterprise data management platform through a smartphone. IT staff can use the app to monitor the health and performance of their Cohesity infrastructure and get alerts about anomalies such as ransomware attacks.
The software-as-a-service data management offering enables users to see, manage and take action on their data whether it is located in data centres, in the cloud or at the edge. For example, the app’s dashboard provides a way to see available storage capacity and view data sources.
It also uses machine learning to detect anomalies and repel or mitigate ransomware attacks.
“In today’s always-on business environment, companies need the ability to respond quickly to critical data issues at any time, from any location,” said Vineet Abraham, senior vice president of products and engineering at Cohesity. “Cybercriminals don’t just work during office hours and having a way to monitor the health of your data clusters from a mobile device 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and receive notifications that could uncover a ransomware attack in action, could save your organisation millions of dollars and keep brand reputations intact.”
