Dell Now Offering the World’s Most Secure Commercial PCs with New Encryption, Advanced Authentication, and Malware Protection Solutions

Only Dell offers comprehensive encryption, advanced authentication, and leading-edge malware prevention from a single source with Dell Data Protection solutions. And today we’re pleased to announce new developments in our DDP portfolio: Dell Data Protection (DDP) |Encryption is now available with Windows 8 support and auto deployment and provisioning of users when purchased factory-installed on Dell Precision workstations, OptiPlex desktops, and Latitude laptops and tablets—making Dell’s commercial PC line the most secure in the world.

Additionally, today we also announced a new addition to our Dell Data Protection solutions—DDP|Protected Workspace, a sophisticated new tool powered by Invincea™ to protect employees and their data from the latest malware attacks in real time. What’s more, now, with Dell’s new authentication software – Dell Data Protection| Security Tools – IT managers can centrally manage both their encryption and authentication policies using the same DDP console. Dell offers the broadest range of fully-integrated advanced authentication options, including fingerprint, smart card and contactless smart card readers and Dell ControlVault for secure hardware credential processing. DDP | Security Tools ships on every Dell commercial endpoint to enable these advanced authentication options.

 

 

We’re also proud to announce DDP| Protected Workspace, the newest addition to the DDP solutions portfolio, which utilizes a sophisticated new approach to malware prevention to protect data and users from targeted attacks. Powered by Invincea™, the technology was born out of a DARPA funded project for advanced endpoint protection and addresses cyber-attacks such as spear-phishing, watering hole attacks, drive-by downloads, poisoned search engine results and more threats that target end users.

DDP | Protected Workspace helps protect users against all types of cyber-attacks – even Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and zero-day exploits – by placing them in a protected environment any time they go to the Internet or encounter untrusted files within email. As an added benefit, DDP | Protected Workspace is completely unobtrusive to users so their everyday workflow is uninterrupted.

A one-year subscription to DDP | Protected Workspace software is included on Dell Precision, Latitude and OptiPlex PCs. Once the application is activated, it begins moving users’ browsers, PDF readers and Office suite into a contained, virtual environment where it automatically identifies malware attacks in real-time based on behaviors and actions inside the environment and away from the host operating system.
