Dell Security – the Best in the Business

Search Security awards Dell Data Protection | Encryption and SonicWALL its Security Readers Choice Award

Time and again when we speak with customers of every size, security is their number one concern.  At Dell, we recognized this need early on and have been building our portfolio to meet these needs, which led to the acquisition of industry leaders like SonicWALL and Credant.  Now, it looks like others are taking notice of our efforts, too.

 Recently, Search Security announced that Dell Data Protection| Encryption has been chosen as the Security Readers’ Choice Award 2013 for Encryption and SonicWALL won its Security Readers’ Choice Award 2013 for Unified Threat Management. The fact that these awards are based on feedback from readers of key, security-focused publications makes us particularly proud because that means this is the opinion of customers and potential customers.

Company data, which includes customer information, intellectual property and sales information, is the lifeblood of many organizations and safeguarding that information can be the difference between staying in business and losing the trust and confidence of your customers. With Dell Data Protection | Encryption, Dell has taken an innovative approach to addressing one of the most sensitive and vulnerable facets of the IT ecosystem – the endpoint. DDP|E makes is possible to quickly and easily protect critical data on desktops, laptops, tablets and USB thumb drives and external media devices.

According to Pete Lindstrom, principal and vice president of research, Spire Security – this is exactly what Dell was able to do with Dell Data Protection Encryption and was a key factor in earning this recognition: “Getting encryption right at an enterprise scale has always been challenging. What has changed over the past few years, however, is that available products are capable of handling some of the toughest hurdles, such as key management, with little impact on system performance. The additional benefits encryption provides to address laws and regulations, gives it the nudge it has needed to become a clear winner from an economic perspective."

I don’t think I could have said it said it any better myself.
