Dell Technologies is announcing new security services and solutions to help organizations protect against threats, respond to attacks and secure their devices, systems and clouds.
Seventy-two percent of IT business leaders and professionals believe the changing working world exposes their organization to even greater risk. The highly distributed IT environment creates new opportunities for cybercriminals and requires organizations to transform their approach to securing and recovering their data and systems. Dell’s new security offerings help tackle these challenges so organizations can reduce risk and protect their business.
“Security is embedded in Dell’s DNA. It’s built into our designs, infrastructure, supply chain and our products,” said Matt Baker, senior vice president of Corporate Strategy, Dell Technologies. “Our growing portfolio of security services and solutions is helping organizations tackle their toughest security challenges and addressing the increasing complexity of how they stay secure across networks, devices and systems. We’re helping customers double down on resilience in a challenging environment.”
“In today’s highly connected, work-from-anywhere world, security is a non-negotiable component of APJ organizations’ business plans. In the past year alone, 48%[ii] of disruptions experienced by organizations across Asia Pacific and Japan were caused by cyberattacks,” said Chuah Yeow Chong, vice president, Services Sales, Asia Pacific & Japan, Dell Technologies. “With these new security services and solutions, our customers now have more security choices to protect their business, data, intellectual property and reputation.”
Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Pro Plus helps safeguard IT environments
Dell is expanding the capabilities of its MDR offering with Managed Detection and Response Pro Plus, a fully managed security operations solution that helps organizations prevent, respond and recover from security threats.
With Managed Detection and Response Pro Plus, Dell protects endpoints, infrastructure, software, hardware and clouds by:
- Delivering 24×7 threat detection and investigation while also identifying vulnerabilities and prioritizing patching.
- Conducting breach and attack simulations to ensure an organization’s existing security controls, including web or email gateway settings, are configured and working properly.
- Carrying out penetration testing to find vulnerable pathways into an organization’s environment utilizing the same techniques seasoned hackers use, flagging potentially suspicious activity and recommending security posture improvements.
- Providing year-round cybersecurity training in concise, easy-to-learn modules to improve employee awareness of risks and encourage best practices.
Dell augments its threat management portfolio with CrowdStrike
In addition to a managed services approach, Dell empowers organizations to design, manage and secure their own IT environments. Dell now offers customers more choice in cybersecurity software with the addition of CrowdStrike Falcon into its SafeGuard and Response portfolio. With CrowdStrike’s industry leading cloud native platform, organizations can access an extended suite of defenses that accelerate threat investigation and response to protect critical areas of enterprise risk: endpoints and cloud workloads, identity and data. Adding CrowdStrike to the portfolio makes it easier for organizations to rely on Dell for their expanding security needs, including on their journey to a Zero Trust architecture with scalable and best-in-class solutions.
Dell delivers hardware protections to Dell commercial PCs
Dell builds the industry’s most secure commercial PCs.[iii] Providing organizations an additional boost of confidence with integration between Dell’s PC design and supply chain, Dell is launching a cloud-based version of its Secured Component Verification (SCV) offering. The enhanced solution gives enterprise customers added security assurance that their PCs arrive as they were ordered and built from the factory.
Secured Component Verification on Cloud helps reduce the risk of product tampering of Dell commercial PCs. Dell generates a digital certificate, stored in a secure cloud environment, that documents key PC components in the factory. Upon delivery, IT teams can review the PCs against their corresponding certificates to verify component integrity. This unique offering also allows IT teams to verify an entire PC fleet in a single view versus each device locally, providing an additional layer of security while saving time.
“MDR is an accelerant for security teams to quickly identify and close gaps, deploy modern, integrated technology, and guide future security strategies,” said Dave Gruber, principal analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “With the complexity and broader reach of potential attacks, Dell’s recent services and solutions additions demonstrate their understanding and commitment to helping IT and security leaders grow and operationalize security programs capable of keeping up with and defending rapidly changing IT infrastructure.”
