As the first line of engagement for employees, your IT staff faces a range of challenges that can make meeting internal initiatives difficult, where strategic projects become neglected. The last thing you need is to spend valuable time repeating basic troubleshooting.

Security Meets Customer Care

The rapid shift to remote and hybrid work setups, increased dependence on the cloud, and monitoring of employee productivity have created new threats to business data and hardware. Every business is a target regardless of location, industry or size as threats have grown increasingly sophisticated and sometimes challenging to detect. Recent data suggests that 44% of companies experienced at least one hardware-level or BIOS attack over the past 12 months. For an endpoint security strategy to be effective, it must take the entire attack surface into consideration, including supply chain hardware, firmware and day-to-day applications.

Dell Trusted Devices' security portfolio helps protect Dell commercial workstations throughout the supply chain and device lifecycle. New security features include:

  • Advanced Secure Component Verification for PCs
  • Intel Management Engine (ME) Verification
  • Dell Trusted Device Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Integration
