City of Gilbert Deploys Cyber ​​Recovery Vault as Data Haven

With recent research developer “you will be hacked, so embrace the breach,” pointing out that cyber resilience has become common practice for businesses large and small. In fact, ensuring that critical data is immediately recoverable and can be reused is a game-changer.

As the fourth-largest municipality in Arizona, serving 281,000 citizens, the town of Gilbert is a billion-dollar business, and Dell is contributing to its resiliency plan through the Dell Cyber ​​Recovery Vault and CyberSense, according to Tony Bryson (pictured, right), Information Security Manager for the City of Gilbert.

“The reality is that you’re likely to see some type of cyber event, so you better be prepared for it because it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when,” Bryson said. . “What APEX and the Dell Cyber ​​Recovery Vault provide gives us the elasticity we need as a small organization to grow quickly and deal with our internal data issues. This could be a game changer for us as a city as we are a small organization transitioning to a mid-sized organization.

Brison and Steve Keniston (pictured, left), The Storage Alchemist, spoke to an industry analyst Dave Vellante to Dell Technologies World Event, during an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s live streaming studio. They discussed how Dell is helping the City of Gilbert improve its cybersecurity and resiliency plans. (*Disclosure below.)

Cyber ​​resilience is a hot topic

With Dell’s Cyber ​​Recovery Vault and CyberSense solutions, businesses take their data resiliency to the next level, whether on-premises or through a colocation data center, according to Kenniston.

“In the past 24 months, I don’t think there has been a meeting I’ve attended with a client where cyber resilience and cybersecurity haven’t been discussed,” he said. declared. “The CyberSense technology, which is the technology that analyzes the data once it comes from the backup to make sure it’s clean, can be recovered and you can be sure that your recoveries are good.”

By having an air gap solution, Bryson believes peace of mind is high due to improved data security.

“You can’t have real data security without having air space,” he pointed out. “A lot of the ransomware we see moves laterally through your organization. So if all of your data is backed up in the same data center as your backups and primary data sources, there’s a good chance it’s all owned the same time.

The air gap solution is built into the Cyber ​​Recovery Vault, according to Kenniston.

“So in the Cyber ​​Recovery vault, you have a PowerProtect appliance on one side in your data center…. Then wherever your vaulted area is, whether it’s a camp, onsite, or elsewhere, we create a connection between the two that’s one-way,” he said.

Managed services streamline collections because it’s hard to find the right people to do certain things, according to Bryson.

“I think from a manager’s perspective, you get more for your money with managed services…you have people working with this technology all the time,” he added.
