IT administrators in today’s mobile-cloud era face increasing Windows lifecycle management and security challenges. The demands of management and security issues are compounded by the need for an ever-increasing improved user experience, productivity and agility for a workforce forging ahead with innovative intensity.

Most organizations are focusing their efforts on perimeter security including firewalls and intrusion detection. However, as employee mobility has increased and the number of mobile devices in use has exploded, an increasing number of breaches are occurring at the device level.

We believe that a unified policy-based approach to data and endpoint security which leverages comprehensive systems management capabilities for all connected devices is the best way to achieve security and compliance end-to-end.

We are therefore proud to announce an Endpoint Data Security and Management portfolio that offers customers a holistic solution with one point-of-contact for sales. These solutions simplify management and security while providing a better user experience and increased user productivity, ensuring greater agility for a company’s workforce.

The portfolio encompasses solutions from Dell, Mozy by Dell, RSA and VMware AirWatch, arming organizations with the tools they need to protect data and proactively detect threats, while reducing the complexities and administrative burden of working with multiple vendors. It allows employees to securely work when, where and with the tools they need, without compromising security controls and protections.

The new portfolio consists of four main pillars:

  • Data Protection – Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise provides authentication, file-based data encryption and advanced threat prevention in a single solution to enable businesses to protect their data while proactively preventing external threats including advanced persistent threats and malware. Employing robust encryption, MozyEnterprise and MozyPro allow businesses the convenience and functionality of the cloud, without danger of compromising their data, across devices such as multiple laptops, desktops and smartphones.
  • Identity assurance – RSA SecurID® Access provides strong, advanced authentication featuring context-based access control and single sign-on for secure, convenient access to web and SaaS applications, native mobile apps and traditional enterprise resources.
  • Threat Detection and Response – RSA NetWitness® Endpoint uses the latest in behavioural analytics and machine learning to help organizations rapidly detect and focus investigations to accelerate response and remediation to advanced persistent threats and malware that are missed by other platforms.
  • Unified Endpoint Management – VMware AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management provides comprehensive, over-the-air management across all platforms including full Windows lifecycle management from the cloud. AirWatch Unified Endpoint Management enables IT to deploy security patches and OS updates faster, install software more reliably and consolidate operational processes across all devices – on or off the domain and across any network.

With the rise of cyber-attacks and data breaches, and today’s increasingly mobile workforce, securely managing data and endpoints without inhibiting employee productivity is a problem for customers of all sizes. Compounding the problem, organizations have had to turn to a slew of vendors offering point solutions, and stitch together their own security infrastructure. Organizations want to simplify the process of purchasing and deploying protection and security solutions for a variety of devices by working with a vendor that can provide more of what they need.

With our Endpoint Data Security and Management Portfolio, we are solving real customer pain points when it comes to purchasing and deploying security solutions.

Customers have told us they want to consolidate vendors to ease the manageability burden while enhancing their security.

That is exactly what we are doing for them.
