“Security is embedded in Dell’s DNA. It’s built into our designs, infrastructure, supply chain and our products,” said Matt Baker, senior vice president of Corporate Strategy, Dell Technologies. “Our growing portfolio of security services and solutions is helping organizations tackle their toughest security challenges and addressing the increasing complexity of how they stay secure across networks, devices and systems.

With Managed Detection and Response Pro Plus, Dell protects endpoints, infrastructure, software, hardware and clouds by:

Delivering 24×7 threat detection and investigation while also identifying vulnerabilities and prioritizing patching. 

Conducting breach and attack simulations to ensure an organization’s existing security controls, including web or email gateway settings, are configured and working properly. 

Carrying out penetration testing to find vulnerable pathways into an organization’s environment utilizing the same techniques seasoned hackers use, flagging potentially suspicious activity, and recommending security posture improvements.

Providing year-round cybersecurity training in concise, easy-to-learn modules to improve employee awareness of risks and encourage best practices. 

Offering Incident Recovery Care to quickly deploy certified experts to assess a security incident and get the customer back to business if a breach occurs.

“We are seeing huge interest in our cyber-related services in EMEA, particularly with medium-sized businesses. Customers recognize that traditional perimeter defenses are ineffective against increasingly sophisticated ransomware attacks and MDR Pro Plus makes it easier to understand, purchase and enable protection,” said Dermot O’Connell, SVP Services Sales, EMEA, Dell Technologies.

Ready includes planning workshops, installation and configuration of a Dell Cyber Recovery vault, a runbook, a success plan, and cybersecurity skills training 

Optimize adds quarterly vault assessments, recommendations for the environment, including updates, patches, and policies, and assisted restore test simulations. 

Operate adds ongoing operational assistance to monitor and investigate the activity, initiate corrective actions, and provide support in the event of a cyberattack.“MDR is an accelerant for security teams to quickly identify and close gaps, deploy modern, integrated technology, and guide future security strategies,” said Dave Gruber, principal analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “With the complexity and broader reach of potential attacks, Dell’s recent services and solutions additions demonstrate their understanding and commitment to helping IT and security leaders grow and operationalize security programs capable of keeping up with and defending rapidly changing IT infrastructure.”
