Public Cloud Vault to Secure, Isolate and Recover Data

Dell bolsters AWS Marketplace portfolio with a public cloud vault to secure, isolate and recover data from a ransomware attack.

Across all industries and among organizations of every size, cyberattacks are on the rise. Cyber Security Ventures estimates that every 11 seconds a cyber or ransomware attack occurs. Yet, many organizations still lack confidence in their data protection solutions in the face of these modern threats. The 2021 Global Data Protection Index reported that 67% of IT decision makers are not confident that all business-critical data can be recovered after a destructive cyberattack.¹ With more organizations building their business upon, and trusting their organization and data with multiple cloud vendors, having confidence that critical data is secured from ransomware – and can be recovered with integrity – is a priority.

This is why Dell Technologies is bringing Dell’s proven Cyber Recovery vault to AWS Marketplace with Dell EMC PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS. Through AWS Marketplace, you can easily purchase and deploy an air-gapped cyber recovery vault to securely isolate data and protect it from ransomware and other threats – improving cyber resiliency and reducing the impact of cyberattacks.

Going beyond backup, Dell EMC PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS provides multiple layers of security, controls and data protection that allow organizations to resume normal business operations easily and confidently after a cyberattack. The solution isolates critical data away from the attack surface, physically and logically securing it with an 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.

PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS uses capabilities similar to Dell Technologies’ on-premises version but adapted to leverage the power of AWS. The PowerProtect Cyber Recovery software, which automates and orchestrates the data vaulting process, runs within an Amazon virtual private cloud (VPC), where it has been isolated from normal access through secure design and AWS security capabilities. Data synced into the vault is protected with PowerProtect DD Virtual Edition (DDVE), offering proven security and efficiency. Administrative access to the Cyber Recovery management console, when necessary for changes, is provisioned through a secure jump host, with access further limited by IP whitelisting and multi-factor authentication.

PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS offers quick and easy deployment via AWS Marketplace. A CloudFormation template can quickly deploy all of the basic components necessary within AWS, including automatic configuration of security groups, access control lists (ACLs) and private subnets. The base template can be modified or customized to provide additional enhancements or increased capacity.

PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS is the latest Dell EMC data protection solution available as a transactable offer through AWS Marketplace enabling you to leverage your existing AWS subscription. Dell Technologies is committed to providing you fast access to Dell’s portfolio of data protection offerings for AWS with a simple purchase. What’s more, Dell Technologies gives you flexibility, allowing you to purchase Cyber Recovery for AWS how you want – either directly through Dell, or through AWS Marketplace.
