Kyndryl rolls out Dell partnership for disaster recovery and security | #malware | #ransomware | #hacking | #aihp

A new system recovery offering from former IBM division and current managed infrastructure service provider Kyndryl incorporates air-gapped data vaulting technology from Dell for faster recovery from major cybersecurity incidents like ransomware attacks.

The Cyber Incident Recovery service is a four-part system, says Kyndryl global security and resiliency practice leader Kris Lovejoy. Kyndryl provides an orchestration tool that offers users a way to respond programmatically and immediately to a cybersecurity event, an analytics tool that uses machine learning to do regular integrity checking on system configuration data (ensuring that it hasn’t been compromised by bad actors), and the company’s own in-house expertise in deployment and configuration of large-scale, enterprise systems.

The fourth part is the newly added Dell cybervaulting capability, which provides an air-gapped repository of known-good configuration and backup data for speedy recovery in the event of a major system compromise.

Lovejoy says that the idea behind the newly buttressed partnership is to address a logical gap between cybersecurity and disaster recovery/business continuity, particularly where ransomware is concerned.

“This is a practical problem that the market faces, that we’ve been focused on for a long time,” she said. “Ransomware is creating a new recognition that there are gaps in our organizational structures.”

That gap creates a serious issue in cases where a business has to recover from a ransomware attack — recovering newly wiped systems requires clean backups and configuration data, neither of which is a given in the wake of ransomware.
