Dell Debuts A Slew Of Enterprise Security Offerings

by Press Release    Jan 04, 2016


Dell today announced a new, full range of security solutions that enable customers to implement a comprehensive enterprise security strategy to protect their organization from evolving threats while strengthening business agility. New future-ready solutions from Dell’s security portfolio include: a new approach to detecting and blocking advanced persistent threats; expanded user security for cloud apps with multi-factor authentication; enhancements to the Dell Data Protection (DDP) suite of data security solutions; management and policy integration across Dell next-generation firewalls (NGFWs), the switch and wireless access point; and new application security services. These new solutions reinforce Dell’s commitment to delivering a full range of security solutions designed to meet the myriad of security challenges a customer faces.

Businesses are becoming more strategic with their security investments and are using security to enable new things or a competitive advantage, as Dell recently revealed in its Global Technology Adoption Index (GTAI 2015). The GTAI surveyed IT and business decision makers around the world to find out how they perceive, plan for and utilize key technologies, and found that strategic approaches to security are gaining ground in North America and Western Europe.  The share of North American organizations that indicated security is enabling new things or a competitive advantage grew from 25 percent in 2014 to 35 percent in 2015, and grew from 26 percent to 30 percent among Western Europe.

Murli Mohan, Director and General Manager, Dell Software Group says, “In today’s dynamic social marketplace, network integrity continues to be on top of a CIO’s business priorities. Unfortunately, cyber criminals find newer and more sophisticated ways to attack business assets and hunt for vulnerabilities constantly. It becomes imperative that companies explore a more holistic and layered security solution that will help them protect their networks.

Additionally, investments need to be made in robust security solutions that will help detect and protect from observable threats in real time. Dell’s newly launched security solutions will help businesses safeguard their data against all forms of evolving threats through a complete suite of next-generation firewalls , user security and access, and end point controls.”

Dell said in a statement, its approach to security is based on simplicity, so that business users can manage the rules and policies, and end users can easily comply. Dell delivers on this promise with new and updated offerings to the Dell Security portfolio announced today.
