Dell today announced the signing of an agreement which will see it buy Atlanta-based SecureWorks, a provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions which enable companies to reduce risk, improve regulatory compliance and lower costs of managing IT security.
With SecureWorks in its ‘possession’, Dell aims to expand its IT-as-a-Service offerings and information security expertise.
“The frequency and sophistication of attacks on technology infrastructure and malicious attempts to access data, requires reliable, capable and innovative information security,” said Peter Altabef, President, Dell Services. “SecureWorks is a recognized industry leader in information security services and its offerings and expertise will immediately enhance our solutions portfolio. We look forward to welcoming SecureWorks team members – who bring their passion and dedication to serving clients with best-in-class security services – to Dell and our clients.”
Dell expect the SecureWorks deal to be finalized this quarter.
