In a world where digital information is the key to business and a significant proportion of workers are mobile, data loss is both a worst-case scenario and a daily occurrence—and even a single day of downtime can cost thousands of dollars in lost worker productivity, IT administrator time, and data recovery costs. However, implementing security policies typically requires multiple steps, settings, and actions that can become a barrier to implementation. By providing a broad choice of world-class security offerings along with deployment and configuration services, Dell can help enterprises secure key data as well as reclaim wasted time and redirect it toward business growth.
Dell helps simplify mobile security through platforms that are easy to use and manage, including a comprehensive suite of data security options that enable organizations to deploy secure systems direct from the factory. Key features of Dell™ systems such as Dell Latitude™ E-Family laptops and Dell Precision™ mobile workstations can include multiple types of encryption, integrated Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201–compliant fingerprint readers, contactless smart card readers, Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs), Dell ControlVault™ technology, Dell ControlPoint software, and RSA SecureID certification. Dell ControlVault, for example, provides a dedicated processor for authentication and certificate storage while incorporating additional features not supported by TPMs alone. The Dell ControlPoint platform is designed to simplify using and managing security features while helping facilitate the implementation and management of multi-factor authentication across multiple devices.
As the ranks of mobile employees grow, organizations must give resolute focus to protecting IT assets. Designed to simplify data protection and prevent unauthorized access, Dell endpoint security features can help IT organizations deploy and manage security to facilitate simple and secure data access throughout the enterprise.
