Dell announces new endpoint security solutions

Dell Technologies has a new portfolio of endpoint security solutions coming out in March through strategic collaborations with Secureworks and Crowdstrike.

Dell SafeGuard and Response is AI-driven and cloud-native endpoint protection from Crowdstrike combined with threat intelligence and response management software from Secureworks, and Dell says it’s meant to address the inadequate endpoint or network visibility during incident responses that businesses struggle with today.

Crowdstrike’s 2018 Incident Response Insights Report says in 50 per cent of incident response engagements in the past 12 months, organizations suffered from those visibility gaps, and advanced threats went undetected for an average of 380 days.

The new solutions are as follows:

  • CrowdStrike Falcon Prevent: A next-generation antivirus (NGAV) solution that uses AI and machine learning to stop malware and malware-free attacks, without requiring signatures and the heavy updates that come with them.
  • CrowdStrike Falcon Prevent and Insight: In addition to the NGAV solution, customers can layer on this endpoint detection and response (EDR) solution, which provides full visibility into endpoint threat activity and real-time remediation designed to prevent, detect and investigate incidents and stop threats.
  • Secureworks Managed Endpoint Protection: Combined with CrowdStrike Falcon Prevent and Insight and Device Control, this offering provides customers with 24×7 managed services from Secureworks to monitor the state of endpoints. Secureworks Security Operations Center and Counter Threat Unit will investigate events to determine severity, accuracy and context to suggest remedial actions.
  • Secureworks Incident Management Retainer: In the event of a serious security incident, Secureworks will deploy its on-demand incident response specialist team to respond to, and mitigate, a cyber incident at any time. Dell says this service can also be used to build a proactive response plan for future security incidents.

Dell SafeGuard and Response will be available globally this March through Dell and its channel partners. The CrowdStrike Falcon platform can be purchased through Dell.
