The company saw a nearly 40% increase YoY (Q3/Q3) in the number of Fortune 500 accounts doing business with Cohesity. Cohesity customers include three of the top five pharmaceutical companies globally and two of the top five Fortune 500.
  • Triple-digit growth in multimillion-dollar deals: Cohesity realized a 73% increase YoY (Q3/Q3) in the number of customers that spent between $1 million and $5 million on Cohesity software in total lifetime spend, and a 333% YoY (Q3/Q3) increase in customers with more than $5 million in total lifetime spend.

The average contribution per partner (total bookings divided by the number of partners) grew 25% during the same time period of the prior year. These metrics indicate that not only are more partners selling, but their contribution is increasing.

“Our record-breaking results show that more businesses are trusting Cohesity to manage their data in a world in which hybrid cloud is the norm, ransomware attacks are soaring, and the need to derive value from data has never been greater,” said Mohit Aron, CEO and founder, Cohesity. “Customers are also embracing Cohesity because we give them the flexibility to manage data their way — either directly, via our ‘as a service’ offerings, or a combination of both — all through one platform with one user interface. No other vendor today offers this type of choice and radical simplicity.”
