ORGANISATIONS ARE HANDLING 10 TIMES MORE DATA TODAY THAN FIVE YEARS AGO , SAYS NEW DELL TECHNOLOGIES REPORT

Dell has extended its industry leadership in data protection and broad portfolio of cyber resiliency solutions with new software and services .

The Dell Technologies 2021 Global Data Protection Index ( GDPI ) findings reveal organisations are facing several data protection challenges driven by the constant threat of ransomware and the consumption of emerging technologies such as cloud-native applications , Kubernetes containers and Artificial Intelligence ( AI ).

We understand the stakes have never been higher , and the task of protecting data has never been more complex .
According to a recent IDC survey , more than onethird of organisations worldwide have experienced a ransomware attack or breach that blocked access to systems or data in the previous 12 months . To help address these rising – and seemingly inevitable – issues , Dell Technologies is introducing new software and services to accelerate virtual machine ( VM ) backup data availability , simplify management of large data sets , and maintain business continuity while alleviating dependencies on day-to-day cyber recovery operations . “ While ransomware attacks can be devastating for people and businesses , accepting defeat as a foregone conclusion is not the answer ,” said Michel Nader , Senior Regional Director , Data Protection and Cyber Recovery Division – MERAT , Dell Technologies . “ We understand the stakes have never been higher , and the task of protecting data has never been more complex . As the leading provider of data protection hardware and software , our portfolio addresses this growing challenge by helping customers adopt a holistic cybersecurity and data protection strategy to identify , protect , detect , respond and recover from ransomware and other cyberattacks .”
