Dell Data Security Solutions Continue to Keep Your Business Moving Forward

From small businesses to large enterprises, no one is immune to a cyberattack. With workforces becoming more global and mobile, more connected devices are added to a company’s IT network. The threat landscape is likewise continually evolving, with bad actors finding new ways to develop more sophisticated threats that can evade detection such as viruses, intrusions, botnets, spyware, worms, Trojans, adware, keyloggers, malicious mobile code (MMC) and ransomware.

With 95 percent of breaches originating at the endpoint, security teams are faced with a growing challenge: how do they enable a workforce that can work where, when and how they want without worry? There’s a need for a new paradigm that looks at data holistically, empowering users with the information and ideas that they need to fuel growth and build value while protecting that data, whether it’s at rest or in motion via email, cloud or file share over mobile, USB drive or remote server.

With these challenges continuing to impact our customers, Dell is more committed than ever to playing a significant role in creating that new paradigm for the industry. Although we’ve made a recent change in our security portfolio with the divestiture of our software business, Dell Data Security Solutions continues to be a core pillar of how Dell helps our customers become future-ready.

Over the past year, we’ve invested heavily in developing superior security solutions which protect critical business data wherever they travel, while also securing individual endpoints from today’s sophisticated threat landscape. From encryption and endpoint threat prevention to user authentication and compliance reporting, we are committed to delivering best of breed security solutions to unlock the speed, agility and innovation of today’s mobile workforce. With our new Endpoint Data Security and Management portfolio, announced last month at Dell EMC World and available today, organizations can securely manage their data and endpoints without choking end user productivity. This is accomplished by combining award-winning capabilities from Dell Data Security Solutions, Mozy by Dell, RSA and VMware AirWatch across four pillars:

  • Data Protection

    • Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise enables businesses to protect their data while proactively preventing external threats

    • Dell EMC MozyEnterprise and MozyPro allow small and large businesses to embrace the convenience and functionality of the cloud, without compromising their data.

  • Identity Assurance

    • RSA SecurID Access delivers secure, convenient access to web and SaaS applications, native mobile apps and traditional enterprise resources.

  • Threat Detection and Response

    • RSA NetWitness Endpoint helps organizations rapidly detect and focus investigations to accelerate response and remediation to advanced persistent threats and malware that are missed by other platforms.

  • Unified Endpoint Management

    • WMware AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management enables IT to deploy security patches and OS updates faster, install software more reliably and consolidate operational processes across all devices.

This is only the beginning. We will continue to listen to the challenges that our customers are facing in enabling a secure and productive workforce, and take a nimble and innovative approach to addressing those challenges. I look forward to updating you on our progress as we continue to raise the bar for the industry in delivering superior security solutions for small and medium businesses and enterprises alike.
