Iron Mountain data recovery adds ransomware protection

Iron Mountain data recovery wants to perform “CPR” on organizations that get hit with ransomware.

The Iron Cloud Critical Protection and Recovery (CPR), set to launch this month, isolates data, disconnecting it from a network. It provides a “cleanroom” to recover data, in the event of an attack, and ensures that ransomware is out of the system.

“Every business is really data-driven today,” said Pete Gerr, senior product manager at Iron Mountain, which is based in Boston. “Data is their most valuable asset.”

Legacy backup and disaster recovery “really weren’t built for the modern threat environment,” and isolated recovery offers the best protection against ransomware, Gerr said.

Ransomware continues to get smarter and remains a prevalent method of cyberattack. Phil Goodwin, research director of storage systems and software at IDC, said the majority of risks for organizations’ data loss involve malware and ransomware. “It’s not a matter of if they’re going to get hit, it’s a matter of when,” Goodwin said.

That’s caused many organizations to proactively tackle the problem with ransomware-specific products

“It’s moved from a backroom discussion to the boardroom,” Gerr said.

Iron Mountain data recovery gets ‘clean’

Iron Cloud CPR features Iron Mountain’s Virtual Cleanroom, a dedicated computing environment hosted within Iron Cloud data centers that provides an air gap. The cleanroom serves as an offline environment where customers can recover backups stored within the secure CPR vault. Then customers can use data forensic utilities or a designated security provider to audit and validate that restored data sets are free from viruses and remediate them if necessary.

Customers then use Iron Mountain data recovery to restore selected sets back to their production environment or another site.

“The last thing we want to do is recover a backup set … that reinfects your environment,” Gerr said.

The air gap, which ensures that ransomware does not touch a given data set, can also be found in such media as tape storage that is disconnected from the network.

Goodwin cautioned that the CPR product should complement an organization’s backup and recovery platform, not replace it.

“It will fit well with what the customer has,” he said.

Iron Cloud CPR also includes a managed service for organizations using Dell EMC’s Cyber Recovery for ransomware recovery. Hosted in Iron Mountain’s data centers, Iron Cloud CPR for Dell EMC Cyber Recovery on Data Domain enables customers to isolate critical data off site for protection against attacks, using a cloud-based monthly subscription model.

CPR is part of the Iron Cloud data management portfolio, which was built using Virtustream’s xStream Cloud Management Platform. The portfolio also includes backup, archive and disaster recovery services.

Both Iron Cloud CPR offerings are fully managed services and work without any other products, Gerr said. They will be available as part of Dell EMC and Virtustream’s data protection portfolios.

Iron Mountain, which claims more than 230,000 customers across its entire product line, said Iron Cloud CPR is expected to be generally available by the end of June. Several customers are working with the Iron Mountain data recovery product as early adopters.

Federal HR wants to modernize cybersecurity recruiting, pay

The U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security wants dramatic changes in hiring and management of cybersecurity professionals. It seeks 21st Century HR practices and technologies, with a goal of making the federal HR program as competitive as the private sector.

This effort will streamline hiring and improve cybersecurity recruiting. DHS wants a pay system for cybersecurity professionals based on “individual’s skills and capabilities.” New HR technologies are sought as well.

The proposed federal HR improvements are in a request for information to vendors. In this knowledge gathering effort vendors are asked to estimate the cost, and outline the expertise and technologies needed to achieve this reform. It doesn’t obligate the government but sets the stage for contract proposals. Its goals are sweeping.

DHS, for instance, said it wanted to end 20th Century federal HR practices, such as annual reviews. Instead, it wants 21st Century methods, such as continuous performance management.

The goal is modernizing federal HR technologies and processes, but with a focus on improving cybersecurity recruiting and retention.

Analysts see DHS moving in the right direction

HR analysts contacted about the planned federal cybersecurity recruiting reform seemed impressed.

“The scope of this is really big and it’s very ambitious,” said Kyle Lagunas, research manager in IDC’s talent acquisition and staffing research practice. “I’m really encouraged to see this. It really captures, I think, where the industry is going.”

It’s all in the right direction.
Josh Bersinfounder and principal, Bersin by Deloitte Consulting

“This sounds like good stuff to me,” said Josh Bersin, founder and principal of Bersin by Deloitte Consulting. “It’s all in the right direction,” he said.

Both analysts said that if DHS achieves its goals it will rank with leading businesses in HR best practices.

DHS employs some 11,000 cybersecurity professionals and leads government efforts to secure public and private critical infrastructure systems.

The U.S. said in 2016 that there weren’t enough cybersecurity professionals to meet federal HR needs. President Barack Obama’s administration called for a “government-wide” federal HR cybersecurity recruitment strategy. President Donald Trump’s administration is reaching out to vendors for specifics.

DHS published its request for information for reforming federal HR in early May, asking for cost estimates and ideas for modernizing cybersecurity hiring and management. It sought specific capabilities such as the ability to process as many as 75,000 applicants per year. It wants, as well, applicant assessment technologies. This can include virtual environments, for testing “real-world application of technical cybersecurity competencies.”

Feds boldly make a case for reform of cybersecurity recruiting

But what distinguished this particular federal HR request, from so many other government requests for information, was its dramatic framing of the goal.

The 20th Century way of recruiting involves posting a job and “hoping the right candidates apply,” said DHS in its request to vendors. The new 21st Century method — is to “strategically recruit from a variety of sources on an ongoing basis, and use up-to-date, cybersecurity-focused standards and validated tools to screen, assess and select talent.”

DHS also wants to adopt “market-sensitive pay” to more readily compete for people, a smart move, according to Lagunas. “If they want to bring in top cybersecurity talent they are going to have to make sure they are very competitive in their pay and practices.”

In what may be a nod to the growing contingent workforce, DHS wants a federal HR plan for “dynamic careers.” This involves “streamlined movement” from the private sector to government and back again.

The deadline for vendor responses to the government’s request for information is May 25.
