Dell EMC Announced Brand New Cyber Recovery Software
Dell EMC announced Cyber Recovery software, along with Cyber Recovery Services, designed to help provide a last line of data protection defense against ransomware and destructive cyber attacks. The software includes automation, workflow and security analytics tools to ensure gold copies of critical data are isolated yet available so business processes can be resumed as quickly as possible in the event of a destructive cyber attack.
“Malicious insiders and sophisticated cyber attackers, especially those that employ ransomware, are known to deliberately target data protection and backup infrastructure,” said Beth Phalen, President, Data Protection, Dell EMC. “We take a layered approach to data protection within the portfolio and with our Dell EMC Cyber Recovery software and Services, helping ensure true data isolation and a last line of data protection defense for business-critical data from a variety cyber threats.”
Dell EMC Cyber Recovery is new software that integrates with Data Domain protection storage hardware. It provides a solution that combines the benefits of data isolation and business continuity to help minimize the impact of a cyber attack, while providing a faster and higher likelihood of success in the recovery of critical data and systems.
It automates the retention of isolated secure copies of critical data within a Cyber Recovery Vault, removing them from the attack surface. Serving as the ideal test bed, the CR Vault allows customers to perform security analytics on the retained data without having to perform a restore and potentially activating malware that may be present in the protected dataset. A new REST API automation framework provides seamless integration with security analytics software packages such as Index Engines CyberSense which applies over 40 heuristics to determine indicators of compromise.
Cyber Recovery Services are focused on providing a solution which is tailored to the customer’s exact data protection and cyber security requirements. This is accomplished through an expanded set of services including workshops with clients, advisory service, advisory & roadmap, deployment services and implementation. Cyber Recovery software is now available globally through Dell EMC at no additional cost with purchase of Data Domain (DDOS 6.0.x and higher). Cyber Recovery Services are also already available.
