Dell Technologies (NYSE: DELL) is expanding its data protection portfolio of appliances, software, and as-a-Service offerings to help customers strengthen cyber resiliency in the face of increasing cyberattacks.

Industry sources added that with advances across the Dell Data Protection portfolio, Dell is helping customers build a modern and resilient foundation to protect data on-premises, in public clouds and at the edge. These innovations help address concerns raised in the 2024 Dell Global Data Protection Index (GDPI) survey, which revealed that 75% of organizations believe their existing data protection measures are unable to cope with ransomware threats.

Arthur Lewis, president, Infrastructure Solutions Group, Dell Technologies stated “With the exponential growth of data, generative AI (GenAI) presents organizations with opportunities to streamline processes, improve decision-making and drive innovation, but it also extends the attack surface for cyberattacks – especially with trained models, which are quickly becoming one of the most valuable assets for enterprises. With this expanding digital landscape that exposes more vulnerability gaps, companies are increasing their reliance on Dell to help protect their data wherever it resides with trusted data protection and AI offerings.”

Phil Goodwin, research vice president, IDC commented “With increasing cyber threats putting organizations on constant high alert, the demand for trusted high-performance data protection systems has never been greater. Dell’s portfolio of data protection solutions supports numerous data protection best practices to help organizations modernize their data protection environment. With major performance enhancements in backup and restore, we expect the latest PowerProtect Data Domain appliances to remain a key element of critical data protection and cyber recovery infrastructure.”

Sanjay Mirchandani, president and CEO, of Commvault

Sanjay Mirchandani, president and CEO, of Commvault stated “Dell and Commvault have a shared belief that a strong foundation for resilience is absolutely required in the face of AI-driven cyber threats. Together, we are delivering industry-leading cybersecurity, performance, and efficiency to our joint customers. With a deep API integration between the Commvault Cloud platform and Dell’s latest PowerProtect Data Domain appliances, we can leverage the full strength of our combined cyber resilience, data security and rapid recovery capabilities to empower organizations to effectively mitigate risks and ensure uninterrupted business continuity.”

Rich Jackson, data protection architect, State of Michigan stated “We have been relying on PowerProtect Data Domain appliances to keep our data secure for over a decade and a half now. We have no doubts that the latest generation of appliances will continue to increase protection performance and the security of our data.”
