Cyber Security

Cyber Security Today Requires Cyber Recovery

When it comes to Cyber Security, more organizations today are adopting a cyber resilience approach to dealing with threats sophisticated threats like ransomware. In addition to working to prevent attacks, a cyber resilience strategy focuses on ways to mitigate the damage from cyber threats and how to achieve a successful data recovery to restore operations after an attack, not simply how to prevent a cyberattack. Effective recovery of critical data is a key component of a Cyber Security program. By ensuring data integrity is maintained, critical data may be recovered with confidence to enable resumption of normal business operations.

Dell PowerProtect appliances and PowerProtect Cyber Recovery provide a comprehensive solution for protecting data, ensuring the integrity of backup systems and automating recovery to ensure your business is resilient in the face of an attack.

The Challenge of Cyber Recovery

Data drives the modern enterprise – organizations and global marketplaces are more dependent than ever on a continual flow of data across interconnected networks. As the value of data rises, criminal attempts to steal it or exploit it grow as well. Cyber Security is now a top strategic priority for companies in every industry. To ensure the confidentiality, availability and integrity of data, organizations must have superior backup and recovery solutions in place to restore data after a successful attack.

Because restoring data from a clean and protected backup is essential to data protection, cyber recovery strategies today have embraced data isolation approaches as they address the threat of ransomware and other cyber threats. Cyber Recovery provides isolation as critical data is kept in a digital vault that is separated from production and backup networks via an operational airgap. Data protected within the vault is immutable and cannot be changed, preventing files from being altered by attacks, ensuring ransomware protection. And access to the vault is strictly regulated to ensure that, when needed, the backup sets within it can be quickly and confidently recovered.

Dell Technologies provides end-to-end Cyber Security solutions that protect organizations from threats, enable operational resilience and ensure business continuity. PowerProtect Cyber Recovery provides proven, modern and intelligent data protection for critical data, isolating it from cyber threats like ransomware. Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery isolates data away from the attack surface in a digital vault and protects it with an automated operational airgap. Cyber Recovery automatically synchronizes data in the vault with production systems and creates immutable copies with locked retention policies. When an attack occurs, this technology makes it easy to recover critical systems and get the business back up and running.

CyberSense, a technology that can finds corruption in data when a cyber threat penetrates the data center, is fully integrated with PowerProtect Cyber Recovery. CyberSense uses machine learning to analyze over 100 content-based statistics to detect signs of corruption, generate alerts and identify the last known good data set for recovery.

With PowerProtect Cyber Recovery and CyberSense, organizations can successfully protect critical data and avoid damage to business and reputation that threats like ransomware present.

PowerProtect Cyber Recovery automates workflows to protect critical data, identify suspicious activity and ensure fast recovery when required. PowerProtect Cyber Recovery includes a variety of features and capabilities that promote cyber resiliency and enable quick resumption of normal business operations after an attack.

  • The vault is updated through a replication process that is based on acceptable risk exposure limits for uptime connectivity and data loss parameters.
  • Security administrators have complete visibility into the integrity of all data and metadata protected in the vault.
  • CyberSense technology performs full content indexing to identify and stop suspicious activity through automated alerts and Cyber Security workflows.
  • Critical data is kept in a dedicated, hardened digital vault with physical and operational air gaps that isolate it from the network and potential cyberattacks.
  • Multiple separate logins are required to access the vault, protecting against insider attacks.
  • Data written to the Cyber Recovery vault is immutable and unchangeable, preventing malware or ransomware from corrupting vaulted data.
  • Malware that is stored to the vault does not have the ability to execute or infect data outside of the vault.

Components of Cyber Security: Building a Robust Defense

A comprehensive Cyber Security protection strategy is composed of multiple layers, each designed to safeguard different aspects of an organization's digital infrastructure. The component of Cyber Security includes:

Cyber Security FAQs

Cyber Security is the practice of defending systems, networks, applications and data from cyberattacks. Organizations also take Cyber Security measures to prevent theft of funds, extortion, identity theft and interruptions to business.

Cyber Security best practices are continually changing as the landscape of cyber threats continues to evolve. Because successful cyberattacks typically exploit human behavior, most Cyber Security programs include training for employees intended to prevent behavior that can lead to a breach. Cyber Security programs also include technology to identify and block threats and cyber recovery technology to quickly restore access to data after a successful cyber attack.

What does Cyber Security mean for businesses today? It refers to the suite of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, devices, programs, and data from attacks, damage, or unauthorized access. In the digital age, Cyber Security is essential for businesses of all sizes to protect sensitive information and maintain trust with their customers.

What does Cyber Security protect? It safeguards an organization's intellectual property, financial information, employee details, and any data entrusted to them by customers or clients. This includes protection from cyberattacks, data breaches, identity theft, and other online threats.

Data protection and Cyber Security work in tandem. While Cyber Security focuses on defending against external threats, data protection ensures the privacy and integrity of data. Together, they provide a comprehensive approach to safeguarding an organization's digital assets.

Cyber Security services are specialized offerings designed to help organizations protect themselves from cyber threats. These services can range from vulnerability assessments and penetration testing to managed security services and incident response. By leveraging Cyber Security services, organizations can gain access to expertise and tools that help them stay ahead of cyber threats.
