Kyndryl, the world’s largest IT infrastructure services provider, has revealed details of its expanded global alliance with Dell Technologies.

The agreement is focused on “helping customers use data optimization, infrastructure management services and a cyber resilience solution to protect their critical business assets,” according to the announcement.

This is the latest global partnership revealed by Kyndryl, which works with works with some of the giants of tech and electronics worldwide including Microsoft, Vodafone, Lenovo, Google and Cisco.

Kyndryl Inc was created from the spin-off of IBM’s infrastructure services business, which made up the bulk of IBM Global Technology Services, completed in November 2022.

Under its new Titanium partnership with Dell, Kyndryl provides Cyber Incident Recovery with initial protection from cyber-attacks for customers using Dell’s high-performance storage, servers and data protection systems.

“This solution is designed to help secure critical data sets and provide a verified process to recover data back into the business,” said Kyndal in its press statement.

“The approach uses an “air-gapped” data vault from Dell, whereby one copy of the data is offline and cannot be accessed, to help customers ensure integrity and availability of data sets in the event of a cyber incident.”

Dell has given Kyndryl Titanium Black Global Partner status in the Dell Technologies Partner Program. This status recognizes Dell’s most strategic partners – those best equipped for today’s data-centric, multicloud world and support their customers in their digital transformation journey. The designation and this collaboration will enable customers to enhance their digital innovation and business transformation.

“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, 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,” added Lovejoy.

Ensuring effective cyber resilience is a top priority for customers. Kyndryl’s Cyber Incident Recovery with Dell Technologies solution is designed to enhance and complement existing backup and disaster recovery solutions, help minimize the impact of cyber incidents and enable a quicker return to normal operations as well as a greater likelihood of recovering critical data.

“It’s more important than ever for companies to have confidence in the protection of their critical data to ensure cyber resiliency,” said Denise Millard, Senior Vice President, Global Alliances, Dell Technologies. “Dell and Kyndryl are well positioned to help our customers succeed in the multicloud and data era.”
