Dell is releasing new cybersecurity services designed to enable organizations to assess their zero trust and cyber resilience maturity, endpoint security solutions to support hybrid work and ransomware protection for object storage data.
For services, Dell’s new offerings include Dell Cybersecurity Advisory Services, which will give organizations a roadmap to zero trust that builds on their existing cybersecurity assets. The services are designed to find and address security gaps, determine technologies customer should implement and help them learn how to enable continuous vigilance and governance for long-term cyber resiliency.
The new services also include Vulnerability Management that features Dell experts to regularly scan customer environments for vulnerabilities and provide a full picture of exposures and help prioritize patching efforts.
To help secure endpoints being used in hybrid work scenarios, Dell is also releasing new commercial PC offerings, including the option for customers to disable PC ports prior to shipment to help prevent the tampering of BIOS settings. The company is also expanding the availability of tamper-evident seals to Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa to offer more physical security measures during shipping.
Dell is also leveraging an integration of telemetry between Microsoft Intune and Splunk Consoles to help customers detect potential tampering of PC’s BIOS. This allows IT administrators to use the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center to secure, control and configure Dell PCs, including BIOS configuration and password management. These capabilities will be available in a future release of Intune.
The company says it is also adding new software protections to help speed threat detection and remediation and protect data from unauthorized downloads onto external USB storage devices.
Dell also announced the Dell ECS Enterprise Object Storage platform which is designed to help secure object data to an isolated cyber vault residing locally or in a remote environment. The platform is accessible through the AWS S2 protocol and allows critical applications and backup servers to continue to access the isolated copy while supporting legal compliance in the event of a cyberattack that compromises the primary and secondary data copy.
“In a multicloud world, an organization’s cybersecurity strategy must transcend its infrastructure and extend to its applications and data,” says John Roese, global chief technology officer of Dell Technologies. “We believe a Zero Trust strategy is the best path forward. Dell has the proven IT and security foundation, technology integration experience, and extensive global partner ecosystem to help simplify customers’ cybersecurity transformations.”
The new products and services come as the Round Rock, Texas-based company looks to help organizations adopt a zero trust architecture to more proactively protect against cybersecurity threats with the planned opening of a Zero Trust Center of Excellence. The center is in collaboration with CyberPoint International and the Maryland Innovation Security Institute (MISI) in Spring 2023 at DreamPort, the U.S. Cyber Command’s cybersecurity innovation facility. Dell, CyberPoint and MISI will give organizations a secure data center to validate zero trust use cases. The Center will use the Department of Defense Zero Trust Reference Architecture as its foundation for organizations to test configurations before deployment in their own environments.
“We believe our critical collaboration with Dell Technologies at the DreamPort Center of Excellence will drive rapid innovation and integration of Zero Trust solutions to help the U.S. government and commercial enterprises defend increasingly complex and ongoing cyber threats,” says Horace Jones, president of CyberPoint International.
