Cobalt Iron Inc., a leading provider of SaaS-based enterprise data protection, has been named to CIOReview's "20 Most Promising IBM Solution Providers" for 2021. The CIOReview listing recognizes Cobalt Iron's Compass® enterprise SaaS backup platform as a powerful extension of IBM's Spectrum Protect data protection solution.

Over the years, the value of enterprise data has grown exponentially in enterprise IT environments — and with it, the need to protect the data. A large part of a sustainable data protection strategy revolves around ensuring that the data under protection is available to authorized users 24/7 and that it can be restored seamlessly, even after an unexpected data corruption, data loss, or cyberattack event.

With its robust and scalable Spectrum Protect product, IBM has applied its industry-leading expertise and skills to address these data protection requirements. Enterprises worldwide have adopted IBM Spectrum Protect to enhance their data backup and recovery operations. As a SaaS platform, Compass is an ideal complement to Spectrum Protect, enabling enterprises to orchestrate their data backup experiences without a large, upfront capital investment. Compass' analytics-driven automation tools are designed to optimize the capabilities of Spectrum Protect and eliminate the obstacles of onboarding and operating enterprise data protection.

With real-time capacity management, monitoring, and alerting facilitated by Compass, users can simply keep an eye on a single, unified, web-based dashboard, rather than constantly checking every individual aspect of their backup infrastructure. However, Compass goes beyond simply automating formerly manual data backup processes. The platform's cloud capabilities — including data to the cloud, cloud DR replication, and cross-cloud protection — are configured to run on multiple environments, including AWS, Azure, Alibaba, Google, and IBM.

Additionally, the award-winning cybersecurity functions known collectively as Cyber Shield™ are built natively into Compass, ensuring absolute data security for enterprise backup environments. This includes a 24/7 problem-detection and avoidance function that ensures a company's ransomware readiness, threat responsiveness, and recovery capability.

"Since our company's inception in 2013, we have been committed to offering a unique approach to data protection that removes the complexities of enterprise backup," said Andy Hurt, chief marketing officer, Cobalt Iron. "And because we offer the preconfigured Compass software on certified hardware, installation for our customers is as easy as four steps — unpack it, rack it, connect it to the network, and power it up."

According to CIOReview, the annual Top 20 list of IBM Solution Providers is chosen by a panel of CEOs, chief information officers, venture capitalists, industry analysts, and the publication's editorial board. Companies chosen are distinct, have a clear-cut methodology, and offer outstanding customer service. The list is selected annually.
