Dell has rolled out a series of new cybersecurity-centric solutions and services intended to help organizations protect against threats, respond to attacks and secure their devices, systems and clouds.

72% of Businesses Realize Risk

According to the company’s internal data, some 72% of IT business leaders and professionals consider their organizations to be at greater risk, compounded by a highly distributed IT environment that gives cyber attackers new opportunities. Dell said that its new security offerings help tackle these challenges so organizations can reduce risk and protect their business.

Commenting on the findings, Matt Baker, senior vice president of corporate strategy at Dell said:

"Security is embedded in Dell's DNA. It's built into our designs, infrastructure, supply chain and our products. Our growing portfolio of security services and solutions is helping organizations tackle their toughest security challenges and addressing the increasing complexity of how they stay secure across networks, devices and systems. We're helping customers double down on resilience in a challenging environment."
