Hitachi Cloud Connect for Equinix is a seamless pipeline between the cloud, Equinix, and the data centre, with all the appropriate controls, separations, and connections needed to make the hybrid cloud perform within the company’s expectations. Companies can realize improved performance from cloud workloads using Equinix direct connections to Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). It also enables effortless data migration between cloud solutions.

Dell Technologies

Dell Technologies PowerProtect Cyber Recovery addresses the ever-increasing problem of cyberattacks by isolating and protecting data from ransomware and other sophisticated threats. Using machine learning and AI to identify suspicious activity, the solution acts on intelligence as it learns to better protect.

By creating an air gap, PowerProtect Cyber Recovery moves data away from the attack surface, isolating it within a protected part of the data centre, requiring separate security credentials and multi-factor authentication for access. It automates data sync between production systems and the vault with immutable copies. If a cyberattack happens, businesses can access a clean copy of the data, recover critical systems and minimise downtime with up to 45% faster restores.

Illumio zero trust segmentation

Security incidents and ransomware attacks are rife, with organisations often struggling to protect their data and keep their lights on during an attack. When breaches occur, it’s often not the initial entry that causes the most damage, but when the attacker moves throughout an organisation to reach critical data and assets. This is the problem that Zero Trust Segmentation (ZTS), a technology category pioneered by Illumio, solves. 

Illumio ZTS stops cyberattacks from spreading across organisations to dramatically reduce their impact, protecting sensitive data and allowing for faster recovery. It visualises all traffic flows between workloads, devices, and the internet, sets granular segmentation policies to control communications, and isolates high-value assets and compromised systems proactively or in response to active attacks. 

Illumio ZTS is available in Australia, having been deployed across many industries across APAC including manufacturing, aviation, banking and insurance, energy and utilities, natural resources, hospitality, education and technology.

It is a cloud-native, cloud-to-cloudbackup, solution built to protect data hosted in SaaS application clouds such as Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce, and Google Workspace. SaaS vendors operate on a shared responsibility model, which means obligations are shared between the vendor and the customer, on aspects relating to security & others. Data, the critical component that powers the business and central to the service’s relevance, is the organisation’s responsibility.

Notably, Arcserve offers immutable backups, offering organisations the ability to retrieve an unaltered copy of the data.
