Cloud Computing

Cohesity, a data security and management service provider, has announced an expanded partnership with Microsoft. The deal includes new software integrations on both platforms that should help to protect businesses against ransomware threats and cybersecurity attacks.

First off, Cohesity has announced the integration of its DataProtect backup and recovery solution with Microsoft Sentinel. It will enable customers to access AI-powered anomaly detection capabilities for incident reporting and ransomware alerts.

Cohesity also provides seamless integration with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and multi-factor authentication (MFA). It makes it easier for IT admins to securely manage and access the Cohesity Data Cloud and Cohesity Cloud Services.

“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 multicloud scenarios,” said Sanjay Poonen, CEO and president, Cohesity.

Cohesity has also teamed up with data management provider BigID. Powered by BigID, Cohesity data classification enables customers to leverage actionable data intelligence for discovery, security, privacy, and governance across Microsoft environments.

Cohesity cloud services now available on Microsoft Azure

Additionally, Cohesity has announced that its popular Cohesity Cloud Services are now available on Microsoft Azure, including Cohesity FortKnox. This release lets organizations protect their sensitive data in multi-cloud and hybrid environments. Microsoft plans to announce the general availability of FortKnox on Azure in the coming months.

Last but not least, Cohesity has introduced Microsoft 365 support in its DataProtect backup as a service (BaaS). The feature allows customers to host their Microsoft 365 data to a data plane hosted on Microsoft Azure.

Cohesity offers various solutions to simplify data management, enhance efficiency, and lower expenses for businesses operating in enterprise environments. The integration of Cohesity with Microsoft Azure is a welcome addition that should help organizations to stay ahead of cybercriminals.
