At the same time, the company introduced its Data Security Alliance, which includes about a dozen partners, including Cisco and Splunk.
There is a clear need for coherence to ensure data security, verdict or data backupRecovery unite,” says Wolfgang Huber, Regional Director for Central Europe at Provider to supportAnd protection services, for sure. Cohesity aggregates all related services on its Helios platform, mainly in its own data cloud.
With DataHawk, Cohesity has data securitySaaSA three-component solution that customers use to protect and recover their data and ransomwareThe ability to block attacks. To make this work, DataHawk includes an adaptive ransomware detector. “This scanner specifically looks for anomalies, potential risks, and other indications of an ongoing ransomware attack,” explains Hooper. In addition, there are indicators of breaches, and structured threat alerts that are updated daily.
In order to be able to identify the most important data, purposes, and policies, DataHawk includes a classification technology made possible by BigId licensed. Finally, the data for which it is necessary to know General Data Protection Regulationfor HIPAA and for PCIRelevant data is important.
This software is said to be able to analyze large amounts of data using more than 200 classifiers and machine learning algorithms in order to identify and reduce the attack surface. In the event of an attack after this, the administrator understands the extent and depth of the threat and can take appropriate measures, which he previously summarized in the operation manual.
To ensure that even in the event of a ransomware attack, the customer always has a file to support Cohesity has been offering a Cohesity-managed vault service since the first half of 2022.

According to Huber, the Recovery Sandbox allows testing recoveries, for example to shorten the duration and reliability of this process.
“Data recovery and backup are based on the four eyes principle,” explains Hooper. “There can also be two pairs of eyes more than two. In the event of an employee failure, the matching token can be used to ensure multi-factor authentication.” Cohesity wants to expand the collaboration with superstars in order to improve support for multiple cloud infrastructures as well. “ContainerArchitecture isn’t really a problem, because coherence also supports Helios dockerVMs and Kubernetes,” explains Hooper. “We want to provide strong support for cloud-native applications, including by providing global lookup, data deduplication, and data compression To view.”
Data Security Alliance
“Last year we did one opinion poll Through I found that data security, governance, and data protection are now board-level issues,” Huber reports. “As I said, data governance, data security, and security management in IT structures and SOCs need to be integrated with each other.”
Cohesity recently formed the Data Security Alliance with partners such as Cisco, Mandian, Palo Alto Networks, CyberArk, and Splunk. There is also an accounting firm, PriceWaterhouse UK (PwC). Richard Horne, partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers UK.
“These 11 partner solutions to date can be integrated via the Helios API,” says Huber. These include the leading companies in SIEM. “Membership in the Data Security Alliance is of course non-exclusive. Partners can always be represented in other alliances,” Hooper explains the situation. “Not only does Allianz’s seven-member advisory board include its board member Kevin Mandia, CEO of clientbut also Kelly Biswell, a veteran director from Microsoft’s Security Services division who previously worked at Deloitte and Accenture.”
