Dell Technologies has partnered with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com, Inc. company, to protect customer data from ransomware by bringing Dell’s cyber recovery solution to the AWS Marketplace with the launch of Dell EMC PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS.
Through the AWS Marketplace, customers 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.
