7 Hot New Dell Technologies Security Products And Services
Dell Technologies is rolling out seven new tools that not only bring more security to the company’s infrastructure and supply chain but also infuse it into the process of consuming, utilizing and decommissioning technology.
1. SafeSupply Chain
When Dell client systems leave the company’s factory, Seybel said there are potentially many things that could happen that would make them an easy target for attackers. SafeSupply Chain is intended to give customers assurance that Dell systems and infrastructure arriving at a client site haven’t been tampered with, according to Seybel.
As a result, Seybel said customers can be confident that they have a clean slate and that nothing has been tampered with when they start imaging their new system. In addition to ensuring that no one has access to the customer’s computer, SafeSupply Chain also included a NIST-compliant hard drive wipe to ensure spyware or illicit agents haven’t been injected into a device’s hard drive.
The tamper-evident seals are added to the device and its box at the factory before shipping, with customers offered optional pallet seats for additional security, according to the company. SafeSupply Chain is at the moment only available in the United States for commercial PCs, and Seybel said the company is looking into timelines around when it’ll be available elsewhere.
