Dell today announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire
SecureWorks Inc., a provider of information-security services.
SecureWorks? Security-as-a-Service solutions include Managed-Security Services, Security and Risk Consulting Services and Threat
Intelligence. The acquisition expands Dell?s global IT-as-a-Service
offerings and information security expertise.
Organizations of all sizes and across diverse industries rely on

compliance and lower costs of managing IT security. The company?s
proprietary threat management platform is scalable and integrates
easily with client environments. In addition, SecureWorks? Counter
Threat Unit research team helps protect clients across multiple
industries from ever-changing global IT threats.
SecureWorks processes more than 13 billion security events and sees
more than 30,000 malware specimens each day. The company has more
than 1,500 banks and credit unions as managed security services
clients and is protecting trillions of dollars in financial assets.
The acquisition is the latest strategic investment by Dell as it
expands its portfolio of enterprise-class IT-as-a-Service solutions.
Building its capabilities as a Managed Security Services Provider
(MSSP) is an important next step in Dell?s strategy to help clients
drive better efficiency across the enterprise and simplify the
management of IT infrastructure.
