Technology plays a critical role in the modern office – whether that office is a brick-and-mortar setup complete with boardrooms and workstations or the kitchen counter. That is why Dell Technologies has been working on several solutions that could help facilitate better communication, collaboration, and location equality for workers. In this article, we take a look at what is needed to build a functional workspace, from hardware and software to the support offered for these components, with Dell.
Technology powers nearly every aspect of today’s businesses, from an individual employee’s work to operations to goods and services. When properly networked, technology can be optimised to improve communication, create efficiencies and increase productivity. Dell is no stranger to this. With Dell, technical teams can kit out entire enterprises within the same ecosystem of devices. This means that different tiers of devices can be dedicated to different teams based on user needs. For example, it may be worth springing for luxury Dell machines for your C-suite execs and dev team, mid-range Dell laptops for your professional staff, and entry-level Dells for support staff.
An important and highly beneficial feature of the Dell range of products and services is how easily they integrate with a variety of other ICT products and solutions, offering you a unified ICT "toolbox" centred around functionality rather than branding. Dell's long-standing collaboration with mega-brands like Microsoft, Oracle, and SAP gives them the necessary edge to provide the most advanced client solutions. Broken into three groups, Dell Consumer Solutions Group offers laptops and notebooks, desktops and accessories as well as industry-leading customer support.
For decades now Dell and Microsoft have had a longstanding relationship. Dell desktops, laptops, and other workstations have become synonymous with the Windows operating system.
Windows has always existed to be a stage for the world’s innovation. It’s been the backbone of global businesses and where scrappy startups became household names. The web was born and grew up on Windows. It’s the place where many of us wrote our first email, played our first PC game and wrote our first line of code. Windows is the place people go to create, connect, learn and achieve – a platform over a billion people today rely on. Windows 11 comes with a wide range of new features, performance improvements, and design changes.
Together, Windows 11 and Dell PCs create a best-in-class experience. Windows 11 is designed to bring you closer to what you love and is released at a time when the PC is playing an even more central role in the way we connect, create and play. When we made the decision on where to set the minimum system requirements for Windows 11, we focused on three principles to guide our thinking to help ensure a great user experience:
With this in mind, not all laptops and workstations can be upgraded to this new operating system. Click here to find out more about the system requirements.
The number of end users who are working remotely and on the go has increased exponentially. With breaches now happening both above and below the OS, you need intelligent solutions that prevent, detect and respond to threats wherever they occur.
Anything that your employees use to communicate with one another and share data can also be vulnerable. Endpoint security management is the policy you create to ensure all the endpoint devices in your network maintain certain levels of security and safety. Endpoint Security Services provide the personalised, expert guidance you need to identify risks, implement solutions and prevent future threats with confidence. Get the most out of your security investments to protect the data and devices that are essential to your business.
Organisations must secure endpoint devices and the data on them, while still satisfying end-user requirements to embrace computing trends such as sharing data in public cloud services and workforce mobility. Traditional data security point solutions attempt to address these needs, but managing multiple clients and consoles is difficult for resource-constrained IT teams, especially those without security experts in-house. Most endpoint protection solutions are difficult to deploy and manage, lack coverage for all the places employees put and use data, and reduce system performance and end-user productivity.
Dell’s data security suite offers a number of advantages, including:
management console that quickly guides you to any issues that need to be addressed Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise offers strong data security for business data, systems, and reputations. The suite offers an integrated client that includes advanced threat prevention, encryption and authentication, all centrally managed via a single console to help businesses reduce IT management costs and complexity. With consolidated compliance reporting and console threat alerts, businesses can easily enforce and prove compliance for all of their endpoints. Built-in security with features like simplified policy configuration with smart defaults and pre-defined report templates is especially helpful as organisations struggle to protect end users and data.
