Dell SecureWorks, Inc. Key Developments

Dell SecureWorks Launches Advanced Malware Protection and Detection Service

Dell SecureWorks has launched a new service to help organizations detect and protect against advanced and evasive threats. Advanced Malware Protection and Detection (AMPD) is a fully managed security service designed to rapidly detect advanced threat actor activity on networks. This managed security service combines the strength of threat intelligence by Dell SecureWorks and the malware defense platform by Lastline, a strategic investment partner of Dell Ventures. Dell SecureWorks continuously monitors and inspects email, file and Web traffic on an organization's network using purpose-built appliances. Suspicious traffic is further reviewed by advanced analysis engines hosted at Dell SecureWorks. AMPD technology is combined with the CTU-powered intelligence capabilities of a specialized security analyst team that rapidly detects, analyzes and diagnoses threats, and provides focused guidance on their removal. AMPD is a fully managed Advanced Malware Detection service that provides the following benefits: Continuous monitoring of files, email attachments and other binaries traversing the network, analysis of suspicious traffic with deep visibility into executed instructions, a dedicated advanced security analyst team, escalation of critical events, management of upgrades, patches, performance and availability, fast, accurate diagnosis threats with actionable next steps to accelerate incident response and reduce further exposure to the malware and a broad context of information about the threat and other hosts that may have been infected.

Dell SecureWorks Expands Vulnerability Monitoring and Prioritization Services for Variety of Scanners

Dell SecureWorks is offering a new Vulnerability Monitoring and Prioritization service to reduce risks in network environments. Organizations conducting vulnerability and environmental assessments can see the output of those scans on the Dell SecureWorks Counter Threat Platform Portal. These results are correlated against active Internet breaches. Collaborating with Risk I/O, the first vulnerability threat-management platform, Dell SecureWorks will add support for more than 20 connectors for a wide variety of vulnerability scanners and assessment tools for network systems, software and applications. Dell SecureWorks will give its MSSP clients the ability to import and match vulnerability scan results within the Counter Threat Platform Portal. Vulnerabilities found can be used for subsequent escalation or de-escalation of security events. Risk I/O sources real-time attack and exploit data from a growing list of external threat feeds. It matches those known risks against an organization's own vulnerability scans to gauge the likelihood of a security breach. The service provides the following benefits: Threat Processing -- 24/7 matching of client vulnerabilities against live attack data. Risk Meters Dashboards -- Indicate the likelihood of a breach and relative priority for remediating threats across an organization. Configurable by business units, operating systems, applications and locations. Remediation Lists -- Discover the remediations needed to reduce risk. Manage and track prioritized remediations in order to quickly reduce an environment's exposure to active Internet threats. Faceted Search -- Customized asset tagging and grouping to search quickly through the stacks of information generated by scanners.

Dell SecureWorks Adds Innovative Advanced Endpoint Threat Detection Service to Cyber Threat Services Portfolio

Dell SecureWorks announced the launch of a comprehensive, cutting-edge Advanced Endpoint Threat Detection (AETD) managed service. The service is currently available to clients and prospects in North America and will be available in EMEA in the latter part of second quarter 2014. The AETD solution is the latest addition to Dell SecureWorks' Advanced Threat Services portfolio, which includes the Managed Advanced Malware Protection (MAMP) service, and the Targeted Threat Hunting service. The Advanced Threat Services portfolio is a comprehensive suite of Internet security services designed to combat advanced threat actors and the risks they pose. In delivering the managed AETD service, Dell SecureWorks is using its proprietary Endpoint Threat Intelligence technology and specialized signatures in combination with Carbon Black from Bit9, an endpoint threat detection platform. The clients' endpoints (laptops, desktops and servers) are continuously monitored in real time for signs of malicious cyber activity. If anything suspicious is detected, Dell SecureWorks' experts immediately go to work analyzing the findings, utilizing the cyber intelligence gathered from over a hundred Targeted Threat Hunting engagements conducted by Dell SecureWorks' elite Counter Threat Unit (CTU) Special Operations experts, combined with the field experience of SecureWorks' veteran Incident Response Team. Dell SecureWorks' security analysts are able to quickly determine if an organization's endpoints have been compromised, how they were compromised and how best to eradicate the threat.
