Cohesity Deepens Collaboration with Microsoft to Bolster Data Security in Microsoft 365 Environments

By Stefania Viscusi

In a move aimed at fortifying data security and management in Microsoft 365 environments, Cohesity, a provider of AI-driven data security solutions, has announced an expanded collaboration with Microsoft. The two companies have partnered for years on joint ventures that have accelerated organizations' abilities to respond to and recover from data loss incidents within Microsoft 365 environments. The latest collaboration follows AI and cloud security integrations between Cohesity and Microsoft across various environments, ranging from Microsoft Azure to Microsoft 365.

Cohesity is working closely with Microsoft to elevate the backup and recovery performance for Microsoft 365 environments. This includes seamless integration of native APIs of Microsoft 365 Backup Storage with Cohesity DataProtect.

“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 cybersecurity threats confidently,” said Jeff Teper, President, Collaboration Apps and Platform, Microsoft. “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.”

Cohesity's DataProtect is a high-performance, secure backup and recovery solution. Designed to safeguard data against sophisticated cyber threats, it offers comprehensive, policy-based protection for a diverse range of data sources, including cloud-native, SaaS, and traditional repositories.

As cyber threats continue to evolve in sophistication and scale, this collaboration helps organizations to have a proactive approach to addressing the challenges they face in safeguarding their data.

“93% of organizations say that the threat of ransomware has grown significantly in 2023, making it particularly important to protect data across cloud environments,” said Sanjay Poonen, Cohesity President and CEO. “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."
