Better Security is Better Business: Dell at Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit

No more scare tactics. No more FUD. The time to stop thinking about security as a practice of restriction and denial is long past due. It’s time to start talking about security as an enabling function for the objectives your organization wants to achieve. That is the core tenet behind the Dell Security Solutions, and next week it will be on display at the Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit June 23-26 in National Harbor, Maryland.

In today’s hyper-connected world companies have many more opportunities to drive new sources of revenue, expand globally, and drive out cost and complexity, and more. What this means for IT is taking on new projects like BYOD, cloud and many others to enable it all. But to enable the enterprise to take advantage of these new opportunities requires a secure and compliant foundation that mitigates risk, won’t compromise efficiency or productivity, and can be built in spite of chronic resource constraints.

At Dell, we believe that our role is to help you protect your organization from endpoint to datacenter to cloud, to help you achieve your most stringent compliance requirements, and enable rapid adoption of new technologies. Between visiting our booths, suites, and speaking sessions, you have many opportunities to engage with our specialists to learn how we make this happen:

At the Dell SecureWorks booth #501 in the Solution Showcase, learn about how our newest service, Advanced Endpoint Threat Detection, can combat today’s most aggressive cyber threats. While there, grab a key that could unlock the newest warship in our cyber fleet. If your key sets our warship free, you could win one of multiple $100 gift cards!

Visit the Dell Security booth #601 to discover what was recently launched across all of our award-winning solutions in network security, secure mobile access, email security and identity and access management.  You will be able to get a complimentary copy of “IAM for the Real World" for industry-leading insight into today’s identity and access management challenges. Dell’s next-generation firewalls will be available to demo and our experts look forward to speaking with you. Many of them are presenting throughout the week and their sessions include:
