The company prepares for increasingly sophisticated malicious cyber attacks

With the explosion of new distributed IT infrastructures, including hybrid and multicloud, the company is also seeing an increase in new strains of ransomware and DDoS attacks in on-premises repositories and in the cloud.

A more innovative, streamlined and targeted approach to cybersecurity, with technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning at the helm, will allow companies to nip these malicious activities in the bud.

“We must go beyond simple reflection how to build technical capacity in the product to make it difficult for attackers ”, said David Noy (photo, left), vice president of product management at Dell Technologies Inc. “In fact, we want to become predictive. We want to use advanced technologies and capabilities like artificial intelligence and machine learning to scan user environments and consult their data, who is really the lifeblood of a business, and say, ‘hey we can see that there is potentially an imminent attack.

Noy and Rob Emsley (photo, right), director of marketing for data protection products at Dell, chatted with Dave Vellante, host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s live streaming studio, for a CUBE digital conversation. They discussed cutting edge cybersecurity. (* Disclosure below.)

Towards cyber resilience

Since the occurrence of ransomware attacks is a matter of ‘when’ and not ‘if’, many experts believe that organizations must achieve a state of cyber resilience in order to stay ahead of any outcome. unfavorable and mitigate losses.

“One of the things we introduced Six months ago is a cyber resilience assessment available worldwide, ”said Emsley.And we worked together with the Corporate Strategy Group, and we have set up a free online assessment tool to allow customers to really answer questions around much of NIST [cybersecurity] framework, around detection, protection and recovery.

Network infrastructures are often built to connect to each other; therefore, it is possible for an external entity to access all of an organization’s data repositories by entering a single system. Dell’s unique “vault-based” approach helps protect customer data by creating a security barrier between each vault, according to Noy.

“We are adopting a more safe-based approach, which means that when you create a cyber safe, it is essentially locked from the rest of your environment. Your cybercriminal is not able to access this solution because there is an air gap, ”he said.
