Cohesity Is Named a Leader Once Again in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™

Company Is Positioned as a Leader for the Second Consecutive Time in Its Third Year of Recognition in the Report for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions

Qinthara Fasya | 26 July 2021

Cohesity recently announced that it has been named a Leader in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions report. The company is positioned as a Leader for the second consecutive time in just its third recognition in this report.  

As per the Gartner report, “Leaders have the highest combined measures of Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. They have the most comprehensive and scalable product portfolios. They have a proven track record of established market presence and financial performance. For vision, they are perceived in the industry as thought leaders and intellectual property (IP) creators, and have well-articulated plans for enhancing recovery capabilities, improving ease of deployment and administration, and increasing their scalability and product breadth.”* 

In the report, Gartner defines enterprise backup and recovery solutions as those “designed to capture a point-in-time copy (backup) of an enterprise workload and write the data out to a secondary storage device for the purpose of recovering this data in case of loss.”** 

“We believe being named a Leader in this report speaks to Cohesity’s success in delivering next-gen data management, which starts with helping organizations protect their data and rapidly recover from ransomware attacks – critically important in today’s world, ” said Lynn Lucas, chief marketing officer, Cohesity. “Couple that with the ability to easily backup, recover, and manage data across a host of use cases – in the data center, edge, cloud, or through as a service, all on one platform – that is radical simplicity at its best.” 

Innovations That Solve Critical Customer Pain Points  

Cohesity has maintained a rapid pace of innovation, focusing on building and delivering solutions that make data management simple to do and easy to scale while protecting data from ransomware attacks. Key breakthroughs introduced this year include: 

  • Recovery and Protection From Ransomware: Organizations such as Sky Lakes Medical are benefitting from the tremendous value that Cohesity DataProtect delivers to customers via the company’s multicloud data platform. Sky Lakes found Cohesity’s immutable backup snapshots, WORM, and other built-in protections especially valuable when the organization was hit by a massive ransomware attack late in 2020. Cohesity’s solutions helped Sky Lakes recover quickly from the ransomware attack – potentially helping to save lives – without requiring the company to pay a penny of ransom. 

  • Backup as a Service (Baas): Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service is a SaaS offering that gives customers another easy way to ensure their on-premises and cloud-based data is backed up and protected. In just six months, Cohesity has expanded the workloads protected with this offering to include: Microsoft Exchange Online, OneDrive, SharePoint Online, and Teams, VMware, SQL Server, Amazon EC2 virtual instances and compute infrastructure and Amazon RDS cloud databases. Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service is available in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.   

  • Automated Disaster Recovery:Cohesity SiteContinuity is integrated with the company’s snapshot-based backup, continuous data protection, and automated failover/failback orchestration capabilities –making it the only web-scale solution to protect applications across tiers, service levels, and locations on a single platform. This helps address enterprise concerns about losing data to ransomware attacks, natural disasters, and human error. It also allows strict SLAs to be met. 

“Little did we know that Cohesity was going to literally rescue Sky Lakes from having to pay a ransom. The backup and recovery technology just flat-out worked. We ultimately recovered all of our servers, and Cohesity worked time and time again throughout that process.” 

John Gaede, director of information systems, Sky Lakes Medical Center.
