Dell is aiming to provide an end-to-end zero trust security solution with Project Fort Zero, a new fully configured solution designed to lower the barrier to entry for zero trust adoption.
According to Dell, the Project Fort Zero solution builds on the momentum of the company’s Zero Trust Center of Excellence and partner ecosystem to accelerate zero trust adoption, and is designed to solve integration and orchestration issues that organizations experience when adopting zero trust solutions from different vendors.
“Zero Trust is designed for decentralized environments, but integrating it across hundreds of point products from dozens of vendors is complex – making it out of reach for most organizations,” said Herb Kelsey, industry chief technology officer, government, Dell Technologies. “We’re helping global organizations solve today’s security challenges by easing integration and accelerating adoption of Zero Trust.”
The solution, part of the Dell Security portfolio, will be validated by the U.S. Department of Defense and evaluated against the department’s Zero Trust reference architecture.
According to Dell, the company along with an ecosystem of more than 30 leading tech companies, will deliver the Zero Trust solution within the next 12 months.
The company says Project Fort Zero has a variety of use cases, including in on-premises data centers for mission-critical organizations, in remote or regional locations such as retail stores, and in the field in places with intermittent connectivity such as airplanes or vehicles.
Along with Project Fort Zero, Dell says it is expanding its security portfolio with Product Success Accelerator (PSX) For Backup, a new service designed to help organizations protect data and recover data in the event of an attack or other disaster.
According to Dell, PSX for Backup simplifies the implementation and maintenance of backup environments to enable data recovery. Its release follows the recent release of PSX for Cyber Recovery, which is designed to implement and operationalize an isolated cyber recovery vault.
Customers can choose from three levels of backup or recovery based on their needs, with each providing different levels of planning, workshops, assessments and operational assistance.
PSX for Backup is available now across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.
