Hybrid, Multicloud Solution Consolidates Data from Multiple Application Silos and Analyzes Data in-Place

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cohesity, a leader in next-gen data management, announced today that it has been named a Visionary in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage. This is the first time the company is recognized in this report.

In the face of continued uncertainty in market conditions, IT leaders are putting even greater emphasis on cost-efficient, scalable, and versatile solutions to address key data challenges. These include rapid growth of unstructured data across disparate silos, management complexity, cyberthreats and ransomware, and difficulty in deriving value from their data.

Cohesity SmartFiles modernizes and dramatically simplifies IT operations by providing one massively scalable platform for multiple data management workloads. It is a software-defined, unified file and object solution designed for the hybrid cloud that allows enterprises to securely and efficiently govern data at scale. SmartFiles delivers ongoing value from organizational data using Cohesity Marketplace apps to analyze data in-place on-premises. To maximize availability, Cohesity’s unique distributed file system provides resiliency and consistency while eliminating disruptive upgrades.

“Our customers love SmartFiles as a great way to optimize cost, scale, and efficiency for their unstructured data. Cohesity has always been about empowering our customers to do more with data – and SmartFiles allows them to manage, secure, and defend their data with next-level intelligence,” said Lynn Lucas, Chief Marketing Officer, Cohesity. “We believe this recognition from Gartner underscores the value and innovation that the Cohesity platform provides to customers looking to simplify unstructured data management.”

Already recognized as a Leader in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions, we believe this inclusion in a second Magic Quadrant validates Cohesity’s comprehensive data management services strategy and highlights the need for a modern platform to harness, secure, and manage data.

“SmartFiles provides a centralized way to easily manage and protect all of our enterprise files. It improves our availability, compliance, and risk management and improves business processes. We are incredibly happy with the SmartFiles solution and its high availability, even during upgrades.” Cazi Brasga, Systems Engineer, City of Santa Monica

“Clauger has streamlined its data management onto a single Cohesity platform for not only backup and recovery, but also for file and object and cloud, with TCO savings of over 25%. We have greater speed and efficiency with Cohesity. For example, our file searches that previously took up to 30 minutes are now performed instantly. Cohesity has greatly improved our overall environment.” Olivier Boute, IT Manager, Clauger

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AI–Concentric AI, a leading vendor of intelligent AI-based solutions for autonomous data security posture management, today announced it has been listed as a Sample Vendor in the newly created Data Security Posture Management category in the recently published Gartner Hype Cycle for Data Security, 2022 report.1 Concentric AI also appears in the Data Access Governance and Data Discovery and Management categories in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Data Security, 2022 report.1

According to the Hype Cycle for Data Security, 2022: “Data security posture management (DSPM) provides visibility as to where sensitive data is, who has access to that data, how it has been used and what the security posture of the data store or application is.”1 Organizations use DSPM as the basis for data risk assessment and to optimize data security governance implementations.

The new Data Security Posture Management category has a Benefit Rating of Transformational, which Gartner defines as, “Enables new ways of doing business across industries that will result in major shifts in industry dynamics.”1

According to Gartner: “Organizations face challenges mitigating data security and privacy risks as data rapidly proliferates across multi-cloud and hybrid IT architectures. Identifying meaningful data risk is impossible to solve without combining metrics from data sensitivity, data lineage, infrastructure configurations that create data risks and access risk into a common view. This is an urgent problem that is encouraging rapid growth in the availability and maturation of this technology.”1

“We believe being recognized by Gartner as a Sample Vendor in Data Security Posture Management validates that organizations need visibility of into their sensitive data across datasets and locations, as well as a consolidated view into the risk associated with inconsistent access privileges, permissions, activity, and location to protect their data from loss,” said Karthik Krishnan, Founder and CEO, Concentric AI. “Organizations using Concentric AI benefit from the company’s AI-assisted deep learning autonomous data security solution to reduce their data risk by discovering, evaluating, and remediating security issues.”

Concentric AI secures data-centric work using AI to protect business-critical information hidden in the millions of files and databases used by today’s distributed workforce. The company’s unique deep learning solution autonomously and accurately finds sensitive content, assesses risk, and remediates security issues, allowing organizations across industries to meet their data security needs for the first time.

Concentric AI’s Semantic Intelligence™ automates unstructured and structured data security using deep learning to categorize data, uncover business criticality and reduce risk. Its Risk Distance™ analysis technology uses the baseline security practices observed for each data category to spot security anomalies in individual files. It compares documents of the same type to identify risk from oversharing, third-party access, wrong location, or misclassification. Organizations benefit from the expertise of content owners without intrusive classification mandates, with no rules, regex, or policy maintenance needed.

Jakarta, Indonesia – Alibaba Cloud, the digital technology and intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group, is to launch its third datacenter in Indonesia early next year. The move is in response to the fast-growing demand from its Indonesian customers, many of whom are increasingly adopting the cloud and rapidly progressing their digital transformation strategies.

The expansion comes after Alibaba Cloud Indonesia built its first datacenter in 2018, with the second datacenter constructed in 2019. Upon completion of the third, Alibaba Cloud will have 64 availability zones across 21 regions worldwide.


In addition, the trusted cloud computing giant revealed its plan to build its first data scrubbing centre in the country, helping Indonesian customers – especially those in the finance and gaming sectors – to fend off cyberattacks.

“On this very occasion, I would like to extend my congratulations to Alibaba Cloud for the on-going development of the Availability Zone and the Data Scrubbing Centre in Indonesia, which is hoped to be launched by 2021,” said the Minister of Communication and Information Technology, Johnny G. Plate.

Minister Johnny sees that this initiative will be one of the ways to accelerate the country’s digital transformation. “We hope that the data management process in the centre will be in line with the Indonesian Government principles in data management, such as lawfulness, fairness, and transparency,” he added.

The new datacenter would also enrich Alibaba Cloud’s local offerings, providing a comprehensive suite of cloud product and services from database, security, network to machine learning and data analytics. “We aim to keep expanding our leading products and innovative services to meet the diverse demand from our customers across different sectors, including e-commerce, finance, online media, education and gaming.” Chen added.

Meantime, the opening of the first data scrubbing centre in Indonesia, which is estimated to be completed in early 2021, will help detect, analyse and remove Tbps-level large volume of malicious traffic to defend distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, especially for finance and gaming businesses which are the common targets of cyberattacks.

“While cyberattacks such as DDoS have grown in intensity and sophistication, especially at a time when more businesses are moving their IT infrastructure onto cloud, Alibaba Cloud’s Anti-DDoS service – which is deployed on its globally distributed data scrubbing centres – can automatically mitigate attacks and reinforce the security of clients’ applications, significantly reducing the threat of malicious attacks.” Chen said.

Alibaba Cloud has been ranked as the number one public cloud service provider in APAC and number three globally, according to Gartner. Since it started serving the market in 2016, Alibaba Cloud Indonesia has introduced proven technologies from the Alibaba ecosystem to serve a wide array of Indonesian customers, including those in e-commerce, finance, logistics, gaming, education and media. In January 2020, Alibaba Cloud announced the launch of a ‘Partner Alliance Program’, an initiative with local ecosystem partners to promote cloud adoption and the use of data intelligence among businesses of all sizes and kinds. It has also partnered with universities, incubator and training institutions to support digital talent development in Indonesia.

London, UK and Amsterdam, Netherlands – Leaseweb UK, a leading hosting and cloud services company, today announces the official opening of a new data center facility in Slough, Berkshire to expand its service offering in the UK. Leaseweb currently has a capacity of 200KW and will service new as well as existing customers hosted at its LON-11 and LON-12 facilities in central London.

The new facility is the third addition to Leaseweb’s data center locations in the UK and is undertaken in partnership with storage and information management services company Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE:IRM), which acquired Leaseweb’s sister company EvoSwitch in 2018. In joining an important UK connectivity hub in the home counties, Leaseweb UK will offer competitively priced colocation services to a wider customer base and expanded Disaster Recovery (DR) services to existing customers including service management software specialist TOPdesk.


The growth in adoption of data-driven strategies to derive business value has led to increased demand for as-a-service offerings such as those provided by Leaseweb UK. Gartner has predicted that ‘by 2025, 80% of enterprises will migrate entirely away from on-premises data centers’, in favour of colocation and cloud hosting solutions.

Eltjo Hofstee, Managing Director of Leaseweb UK comments: “Leaseweb’s expertise in these areas puts us in a strong position to leverage this trend and help businesses position their workloads based on their needs, from colocation, to dedicated servers or to being a hybrid cloud service partner. Adding a facility in Slough enables us to tap into one of the biggest connectivity hubs in the UK outside of London, therefore enhancing our ability to deliver according to these needs.”

In addition to Slough, Leaseweb operates data centers in London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Washington DC, New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, Miami, Singapore, Hong Kong and Sydney.
