Dell’s AI-powered software and operational security capabilities help drive Zero Trust, protecting data and reducing risk from cyberattacks.

Dell Technologies is expanding its industry leadership in data protection appliances and software1 to help customers protect their data on premises, in public clouds and at the edge. It has brought isolated cyber vaults to Google Cloud, broadening its cyber recovery capability in leading public clouds. 

The Dell PowerProtect Data Manager Appliance leads a series of advancements for multi-cloud data protection that are simple to use and easy to consume. Dell innovation in AI-powered resilience and operational security accelerates the adoption of Zero Trust architectures, helping protect organizations from the increasing threat of cyberattacks.  

“With virtually everything connected to the internet in today’s digital world, the need to protect valuable data is more important than ever. This digital landscape requires a modern data protection and security strategy to address cyber threats. Point solutions don’t go deep or wide enough to help protect organizations. Dell helps customers strengthen cyber resiliency by offering integrated data protection software, systems and services to help ensure data and applications are protected and resilient wherever they live,” said Jeff Boudreau, president and general manager, Infrastructure Solutions Group, Dell Technologies. 

The new solutions help address rising data protection challenges facing organizations. According to the 2022 Dell Global Data Protection Index (GDPI) survey, organizations have experienced higher levels of natural and modern disasters than in previous years, resulting in more data loss, downtime and recovery costs. 


PowerProtect Data Manager software addresses the increasing need for cyber resiliency and supports Zero Trust principles with new built-in operational security capabilities, such as multifactor authentication, dual authorization, and role-based access controls. The Dell PowerProtect Data Manager Appliance offers a simple path to adopt modern data protection. The debut system is ideal for small and mid-sized use cases with support that scales from 12 to 96 terabytes of data.

“Dell PowerProtect Data Manager simplifies our backup environment, giving us the business agility needed to protect our data as we digitally transform. With the new Dell PowerProtect Data Manager Appliance, we can more simply deploy Data Manager across our infrastructure, helping us be more efficient and strengthening our cyber resiliency,” said James McNair, Vice President, Distributed Systems Manager, Trustmark Bank. 

PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for Google Cloud enables customers to deploy an isolated cyber vault in Google Cloud to more securely separate and protect data from a cyberattack. Unlike standard cloud-based backup solutions, access to management interfaces is locked down by networking controls and can require separate security credentials and multi-factor authentication for access.

The new offering marks the latest expansion of Dell’s cyber recovery capabilities for public clouds, following this year’s introduction of Dell PowerProtect for Microsoft Azure and CyberSense for Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery for AWS.  

Dell APEX Data Storage Services is expanding to offer a Backup Target option to provide a more secure backup storage in a pay-per-use, flexible consumption model. The Backup Target service is easy for customers to adopt and streamlines the process of purchasing, deploying and maintaining backup storage. Building on Dell’s data appliance and data protection leadership1, the Backup Target helps reduce a customer’s storage footprint and can increase data availability.
