Dell Technologies and AWS have joined hands to bring Dell’s cyber recovery vault to the AWS Marketplace with the launch of Dell EMC PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS. Through the AWS Marketplace, enterprises can easily purchase and deploy an air-gapped cyber vault from Dell to help securely protect and isolate data away from a ransomware attack.  

Dell EMC PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS provides multiple layers of protection with a modern approach that allows AWS customers to resume normal business operations quickly and confidently after a cyberattack. The solution moves a customer’s critical data away from the attack surface, physically and logically isolating it with a secure, automated operational air gap. Unlike standard backup solutions, this air gap locks down management interfaces, requiring separate security credentials and multi-factor authentication for access.  

“Data is a strategic asset and protecting it against ransomware and other cyberattacks is critical for organisations to make informed decisions about their business and thrive in today’s digital economy. By teaming with AWS, we are offering customers a cyber recovery solution that isolates business-critical data away from an attack with an air-gapped cyber vault, helping organisations reduce risk and protect data with confidence after a successful cyberattack,” said David Noy, Vice President of Data Protection Product Management, Dell Technologies.

As organisations continue to adopt diverse IT infrastructures, across the public cloud and on-premises environments, data protection solutions can improve data security. Dell EMC PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS helps customers address the increasing risk of ransomware and other cyberattacks.

“Our recent 2021 Global Data Protection Index survey highlights that 42% of respondents in India lack confidence that all their business-critical data can be recovered in the event of a destructive cyberattack or data loss. Therefore, we have collaborated with AWS to launch a cyber recovery solution that offers modern data protection to isolate critical data, reduces the risk of cyberattacks, and helps accelerate data recovery,” added Ripu Bajwa, Director & General Manager, Data Protection Solutions, Dell Technologies India. 

Starting today, Dell EMC PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS is available for purchase in AWS Marketplace. Customers can gain fast access to Dell’s portfolio of data protection offerings for AWS with a simple purchase, so they can begin deployment immediately.
