Cohesity, experts in AI-driven data security and management, has announced at Microsoft Ignite 2023 that it has expanded its relationship with Microsoft to help organisations respond to and recover from data loss within Microsoft 365 environments.
For years, Cohesity and Microsoft have offered solutions for backup and recovery. This includes recent AI and cloud security integrations announced earlier this year across Microsoft environments, from Microsoft Azure to Microsoft 365.
Sanjay Poonen, CEO and President of Cohesity said, “93 per cent of organisations say that the threat of ransomware has grown significantly in 2023, making it particularly important to protect data across cloud environments. With this integration between Cohesity DataProtect and Microsoft 365 Backup Storage, our joint customers will benefit from faster data restore capabilities in the context of their Microsoft 365 configuration and access policies.”
With this expanded collaboration, Cohesity is working with Microsoft to deliver enhanced backup and recovery performance for Microsoft 365 environments via the integration of native APIs of Microsoft 365 Backup Storage with Cohesity DataProtect.
Jeff Teper, President, Collaboration Apps and Platform, Microsoft added, “Microsoft 365 Backup Storage provides high-speed point-in-time recovery for data stored in Microsoft 365 environments so customers can react and respond to the latest cyber security threats confidently. We are pleased that Cohesity is working with us to bring high-speed Microsoft 365 backup and recovery operations to Cohesity DataProtect, as customers will gain reduced time to backup and restore data, stronger posture for audits and compliance, and greater data and business resiliency.”
