Commvault, a leading provider of data protection and cyber resilience solutions for hybrid cloud organizations, today announced that it’s marrying modern cyber resilience technologies from Commvault with advanced security and data intelligence from pioneers in cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and cloud.
Industry leaders in these areas are choosing to integrate with the newly announced Commvault Cloud platform to provide joint customers with more ways to rapidly detect, protect, and respond to potential threats and attacks while also improving data visibility and governance. Commvault is working with partners across the security tool chain, including: security information and event management (SIEM), security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR), network detection and response, vulnerability risk threat detection, and data governance and privacy.
The timing of these security and AI integrations is ideal as companies face unprecedented volumes of cyber threats and have major concerns about what bad actors can do in terms of business disruption and brand reputations. According to a recent IDC study commissioned by Commvault, 61% of respondents believed that data loss within the next 12 months due to increasingly sophisticated access is “likely” to “very likely.”
Given these on-going concerns, Commvault believes collaboration is key. Earlier this year, Commvault announced integrations with CyberArk, Microsoft Sentinel, and Palo Alto Networks. Today the full expansive set of security and AI partners that are choosing to integrate with Commvault Cloud includes:
- CyberArk: provides an identity security platform that can serve as the first line of defense against malicious actors and unauthorized access to protect what matters most.
- Databricks: combines data warehouses and data lakes into a lakehouse architecture. Customers can collaborate on all of their data, analytics, and AI workloads using one platform.
- Entrust: a global data security and identity solutions provider that is a leader in post-quantum cryptography and data encryption to secure data from current and future threats, advancing cyber resiliency.
- Microsoft Sentinel: Microsoft’s intelligent, comprehensive SIEM solution that helps customers uncover sophisticated threats and respond decisively for proactive threat detection, investigation, and response.
- Netskope: a global SASE cybersecurity leader that is redefining cloud, data, and network security to help organizations apply zero trust principles to protect data.
- Palo Alto Networks: leveraging XSOAR, accelerates incident response times to outpace cyberthreats, so organizations can embrace technology with confidence.
“To be effective for cyber resilience, data security products must integrate with products in the cyber-recovery ecosystem,” said Christophe Bertrand, Practice Director, ESG. “These integrations between security and AI ecosystem partners and Commvault Cloud can play a key role in helping companies advance their security posture while also elevating data governance.”
“By integrating with a broad ecosystem of new security and AI partners via our Commvault Cloud platform, we are not only meeting customers where they need to be met at this critical moment, but we can collectively and jointly bring faster, smarter, and more connected security insights to organizations around the world,” said Rajiv Kottomtharayil, Chief Product Officer, Commvault.
