Elevate cyber resiliency with Cohesity and HPE secure supply chain
With the explosion in sophisticated and costly cyberattacks, it’s more important than ever that IT teams ensure that security standards are built in throughout the supply chain and maintained right from the start. Of course, that includes backup, too. And it’s why Cohesity is now part of the HPE Secure Supply Chain.
Certified HPE ProLiant and Apollo servers now come preloaded with Cohesity software.
Why secure everything?
Security at the hardware level rose in importance a few years ago. When the supply chain of white-box manufacturers was compromised, a detailed report asked these critical questions on behalf of customers:
How do organizations guarantee the hardware they receive from vendors matches their orders?
How do businesses ensure new configurations are free from malware and backdoor mechanisms?
How do we apply the same software tracking used to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks to hardware? Or better yet, to a combination of hardware and firmware?
Today’s organizations now scrutinize everything that goes into their backup solutions. This scrutiny ranges from stringent security requirements for component manufacturers—including the network interface card, power supply, motherboard, disk controller, hard disk, and solid-state drive providers—to all applications and software. New checks and balances are now required, too.
For example, was the person who loaded firmware onto the system authorized to do so? Did they load it onto the correct part of the system? Does it match what was intended?
How HPE takes a 360-degree security view
HPE takes a Zero Trust approach into everything it designs. The company’s enhanced, holistic, 360-degree view into security begins in the manufacturing supply chain and ends with safeguarded, end-of-life decommissioning. Silicon Root of Trust, HPE’s hardware-validated boot process gives customers confidence by helping ensure only the code from an immutable source can start an HPE computer system.
HPE secure supply chain includes hardware and software
HPE has developed a secure supply chain for the first line of defense against cyberattacks. As part of this program, HPE optimized servers for Cohesity are built with a focus on risk management of external suppliers, logistics, and transportation to protect physical server integrity and defend against cyber threats.
Customers need to effectively safeguard their critical data and operations against damaging cyberattacks. This means procuring and deploying solutions that were built with protection in mind, using component parts, manufacturing processes and material sources that support data security,” said Patrick Osborne, SVP & GM, Cloud Data Infrastructure at HPE. “HPE’s secure supply chain is the foundation of HPE’s commitment to provide customers uncompromised products and solutions. Cohesity’s participation in this effort extends our multi-year strategic partnership to secure our joint customers’ environments and deliver an outstanding customer experience.
Thanks to the Cohesity Data Cloud—our data security and management platform for securing, managing, and extracting value from your data—customers can tackle the central problems of data vulnerability and mass data fragmentation. It includes a comprehensive range of AI/ML-powered insights and is third-party extensible, integrating with leading security solutions.
Although this supply chain improvement is about security, it’s also about providing the best customer experience. With Cohesity as part of the HPE Secure Supply Chain, customers enjoy:
