IT infrastructure provider Kyndryl announced an expansion of its global alliance with Dell Technologies that focuses on helping customers use data optimization, infrastructure management services, and a cyber resilience solution to protect their critical business assets.

Kyndryl provides Cyber Incident Recovery with Dell Technologies to accelerate cyber resilience for customers using Dell’s high-performance storage, servers, and data protection systems. 

The company’s approach uses an “air-gapped” data vault from Dell, where one copy of the data is offline and cannot be accessed. This helps customers ensure integrity and availability of data sets in the event of a cyber incident.

“We’re excited to expand our relationship with Dell and look forward to delivering solutions, services and support that customers need to store and protect their data and recover from cyber threats,” said Kris Lovejoy, Global Security and Resiliency practice leader at Kyndryl. “Through this important alliance, we will work together to help companies improve performance and availability of critical data, predictive maintenance, non-disruptive upgrades and refreshes.” 

The collaboration will enable customers to enhance their digital innovation and business transformation, according to the companies.
