With improvements in technology and cyber security, attackers have also shifted towards more sophisticated attack patterns. With Dell announcing SafeGuard and Response, Dell aims to provide organizations with the tools required to detect, prevent and counter to today’s ever-changing threats with its next-gen endpoint security solutions collection.

Wendy Thomas, senior vice president of business and product strategy for Secureworks says, “Attacker techniques are getting more sophisticated and customers need managed solutions that are actively guarding against threat activity. Our modern approach with Dell ensures a coordinated defense against cyber threats at the scale and speed required for any customer’s evolving security needs beyond the network.”

Matthew Polly, vice president of Worldwide Business Development and Channels at CrowdStrike, says, “Being selected by Dell is a testament to CrowdStrike’s market leadership and the proven value of our platform. Together, we are equipping customers with a unique and compelling solution to deliver an end-to-end approach to endpoint security that effectively stops threats, while reducing enterprise complexity and modernizing threat detection and management.”
