Dell delivers connected security vision with innovative solutions and capabilities

Dell today announced the release of four products that tackle today’s biggest IT imperatives ─ including BYOD, cloud, network security, and compliance ─ and make Connected Security a reality for customers worldwide. Dell’s holistic and connected approach, which spans from endpoint to datacenter to cloud, helps solve today’s most complex security and compliance problems.

DellAs part of Dell’s Connected Security portfolio, Dell One Identity Cloud Access Manager, Dell SonicWALL NSA 2600 next generation firewall, Dell ChangeAuditor 6.0, and Dell InTrust 10.7 all provide new levels of protection, and  empower organizations to  collectively gather, analyze, report and act in a proactive way when managing security threats.

The major trends impacting IT today make it crucial for organizations to move away from managing security in silos, and embrace a strategy focused on connecting security to the infrastructure, information and applications that are critical to the organization. To protect data wherever it resides ─ on the network, in the cloud, or on mobile devices ─ Dell delivers Connected Security through  solutions that provide predictive, context-aware security to detect and protect against unseen threats, as well as managed security service offerings with SecureWorks  and Dell Data Protection and Encryption.

Matt Medeiros, vice president and general manager, Security Products, Dell Software, said, “Today’s mega-trends ─ cloud, BYOD/mobility, and big data ─ each introduce a magnitude of new threats and vulnerabilities. The new challenges these threats create for the IT environment ─ insufficient visibility, siloed security, compliance requirements and new reporting ─ all must be managed with limited resources. The only true line of defense is a comprehensive set of predictive, context-aware security solutions that break down silos and protect data where it resides.  Dell Connected Security provides a dynamic solution portfolio that gives organizations the power to solve today’s biggest security and compliance challenges, while helping them better prepare for tomorrow.”

John McClurg, vice president and chief security officer, Del, said, “In an age of increasing risk, the security industry is facing the need to dramatically change its approach to protecting organizations of all sizes across all industries, at all times. Dell is at the forefront of this shift. Our vision for Connected Security ─ a holistic and connected approach to security that spans from endpoint to datacenter to cloud ─ is the driving force behind these collaborative, performance-focused security solutions. The new solutions announced today further expand our Connected Security portfolio, providing CSOs like myself with the business intelligence, contextual richness and tools we need to mitigate risks and become business enablers.”

Mike Johnson, president and CEO, Cerdant, said, “We view Dell’s focus on security and its drive to deliver a comprehensive portfolio around its Connected Security strategy as an exciting development for channel partners like us. We are seeing great revenue potential in helping customers leverage Dell’s industry-leading end-to-end security solutions to tackle their most critical security issues and we look forward to continuing to build our arsenal of security solutions using Dell’s best-of-breed software products.”
