With attacks on the rise, the need for cyber resiliency is now inevitable

The ubiquity of ransomware attacks seems to be an overstated theme in many enterprise events, but that’s only due to how scary the trends are.

Statistics show that cyberattacks will cost the world more than $10 trillion annually by 2025. Thus, Dell Technologies Inc. is lending its considerable expertise in the field to help companies build and maintain their cyber resiliency and recovery infrastructures.

“They have a tough job, because there are so many attacks happening at the same time,” said Mihir Maniar (pictured, right), vice president at Dell Technologies. “One single ransomware incident can cost them on an average $13 million.”

Maniar and Arun Krishnamoorthy (pictured, left), global strategy and portfolio lead of resiliency and security at Dell, spoke with theCUBE industry analysts Dave Vellante and Lisa Martin during the Dell Technologies World event, an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio. They discussed the noteworthy solutions being developed at Dell for security use cases. (* Disclosure below.)

A deep dive into the process

Security breaches, hacks and zero-day exploitations have all kinds of ramifications for companies: from the financial to the reputational. In remaining proactive, Dell’s clients approach the company for solutions that bolster security without affecting productivity.

“How do you identify the threats that exist in the customer’s network?” Maniar asked. “For that, we provide advisory services and assessment of the customer’s vulnerability in order to detect those vulnerabilities. And then we can build the prevention mechanisms for those vulnerabilities.”

The entire configuration process for each Dell customer is governed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology framework, which seeks to solve for threat detection, identification, resolution and prevention within a multi-layer security stack.

Zero-trust is another hot-button topic within the cybersecurity sphere that should be perceived more as a framework than a product, according to Krishnamoorthy.

There’s data across multicloud, which is great,” he explained. “It enables productivity, but it also is not within the four walls of a data center. So, one of the first things we do is identify where the customer’s data is. Where is their application live? And then we look for blind spots.”
