Data management firm Cohesity has released a new version of its Data Cloud software to better combat ransomware and data breaches.
Cohesity Data Cloud 7.0 aims to provide users with improved cyber resiliency capabilities, for example through enhanced authentication, files and objects recovery and support for more types of data.
“Organisations are facing significant challenges with managing and securing their data estate across cloud and on-premises, with ransomware and data theft as their number one concern,” said Chris Kent, vice president of product and solutions marketing at Cohesity. “Protecting and securing data starts before an attack and provides organisations with the ability to mitigate damage from an attack and quickly recover, with minimal impact to the business.
“Cohesity Data Cloud 7.0 adds a new layer of protection and recovery to organisations’ most critical data. We are seeing continual threats facing our customers from external and internal malicious actors, and with these latest enhancements, customers can face these challenges from the start.”
Users of Cohesity 7.0 can speed up recovery from outages and malicious attacks and simplify data resiliency with hardened access controls that provides closer management of privileged administrative accounts and protection of access credentials. The release also offers data lifecycle features that are designed to reduce the attack surface by ensuring data is not retained for longer than necessary.
“As the threat of cyberattack persists, one of our top priorities at Path Forward IT is uplevelling our cyber resilience and assurance to ensure our data and systems are well-guarded against threats like ransomware,” said Adam Brock, senior director of backup and recovery at Path Forward IT, a Cohesity customer. “Cohesity 7.0 will help us bridge end-to-end protection with capabilities that allow for rapid recovery and business continuity so our customers can resume business as usual in the event of cyberattack.”
