Dell To Buy Secureworks

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 SecureWorks? security services to reduce risk, improve regulatory 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.
