Spotlight On Security
Dell has made a calculated effort to ramp up its security offensive since going private with over a half dozen related solutions rolled out since December to help companies protect against vulnerabilities in the enterprise. In April Dell beefed up its connected security portfolio, making important updates to its existing Advanced Threat Services portfolio as well as adding a number of mobile security products such as Secure Mobile Access. The idea, Dell said, was to help mobile work forces bolster their defenses and attempt to tie Dell's mobile security solutions to its end-to-end security portfolio. Other Dell security news has included an update to its KACE K1000 Systems Management Appliance designed to securely manage the "Internet of Things," which includes devices, sensors and objects. It also updated its SonicWALL with more mobile-centric features for device authentication and policy-enforced SSL VPN.
