Acquisition Overview

On December 20, Dell completed its acquisition of Credant Technologies, an award-winning provider of data protection solutions.

Why Credant Technologies?

The addition of Credant strengthens Dell’s comprehensive security solutions that enable organizations of all sizes to protect their IT assets, comply with regulations and reduce security costs.

Customer and Partner Benefits

Credant offers data protection solutions to control, manage and secure data sent from endpoints to servers, storage and the cloud. Credant capabilities will complement and extend current Dell device security features to make Dell Latitude, OptiPlex and Precision PCs among the world’s most secure.

“In today’s work environment data is always in-flight – from work being done on a local PC, being sent via email, stored on a USB drive and saved in the cloud. Each one of those experiences represents a potential security risk. As a result, businesses need a data protection strategy that is comprehensive, flexible and easy to deploy. The Credant assets will complement and extend current Dell device security features to make Dell Latitude, OptiPlex and Precision PCs some of the world’s most secure. And when combined with the change in compute behaviors and data in-flight, Dell can now offer a differentiated security proposition based on its own Intellectual Property.”

Bob Heard, chief executive officer and founder of Credant
“Protecting critical information has only become more important as organizations globally struggle to protect their data in an ever more complex world. This combination allows Credant to bring its deep capabilities in data security to Dell’s robust solution set and customer base. Together we will continue to focus on innovation and building value that results in beneficial outcomes for our customers.”

Steve Lalla, vice president of End User Computing Marketing, Strategy and Solutions at Dell
“The combination of Dell’s leading commercial client portfolio and Credant technology will provide customers with a strengthened security profile and improve their ability to manage their PC estate."
