Forrester Research: 80% reduction in hours spent on recovery after a ransomware attack

Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery with CyberSense®

CyberSense® for Dell Technologies PowerProtect Cyber Recovery

CyberSense is fully integrated with Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery and monitors files and databases to determine if an attack has occurred by analyzing the data’s integrity. Once data is replicated to the Cyber Recovery vault and retention lock is applied, CyberSense automatically scans the backup data, creating point-in-time observations of files, databases, and core infrastructure. These observations enable CyberSense to track how files change over time and uncover even the most advanced type of attack.

This scan occurs directly on the data within the backup image without the need for the original backup software. Analytics are generated that detect encryption/corruption of files or database pages, known malware extensions, mass deletions/creations of files, and more.

Machine learning algorithms then use analytics to make a deterministic decision on data corruption that is indicative of a cyberattack. The machine learning algorithms  have been trained with the latest trojans and ransomware to detect suspicious behavior. If an attack occurs, a critical alert is displayed in the Cyber Recovery dashboard. CyberSense post-attack forensic reports are available to diagnose and recover from the ransomware attack quickly.
