Dell Unveils Dell Data Protection | Secure Lifecycle: Next-Generation Data Protection for the Entire Data Lifecycle
Dell Inc. announced the release of Dell Data Protection | Secure Lifecycle, the next-generation data protection solution to protect business data wherever they travel. The latest addition to the Dell Data Security Solutions portfolio, Secure Lifecycle protect critical business data at all stages of the lifecycle – at rest, in motion, and in use – whether inside or outside of a network. It also provides the ability to define access rights at a granular level, giving IT leaders the authority to restrict individual file access rights only to those that ‘need to know.’
Secure Lifecycle combines multiple functionalities into an integrated solution: data encryption, file access monitoring, DLP (data leakage prevention) and DRM (digital rights management), to provide data protection with a single console. Existing solutions address only elements of data security and are unable to protect data that leave an organization’s environment. Among its most important capabilities is delivering visibility into where data are, regardless of where they have moved. It provides ubiquitous coverage across devices and operating systems, safeguarding files on external storage such as USB keys and major public cloud services, as well as on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets via a secure file container.

Securing and encrypting these data, not just at rest, but in motion and in use, has become critical to maintaining integrity and control,” said Brett Hansen, vice president, Dell Endpoint Data Security and Management. “Dell Data Protection | Secure Lifecycle protects data at all stages of the lifecycle and provides the visibility and confidence for organizations to embrace the mobile workforce—securely.”

The average company has up to 89 third-party vendors accessing their company’s network each week, with each outside access bringing individual risks to data not properly protected. In addition, the recent Dell Data Security Survey shows that 80 percent of midsize organizations are concerned about uploading files to popular public cloud platforms.
Dell Data Protection | Secure Lifecycle provides a heightened level of encryption, which matches the realities of the modern workplace by providing:
