Dell has extended its security service with the acquisition of SecureWorks.
SecureWorks provides IT security services including managed security services, security and risk consulting services and threat intelligence. Dell said the acquisition extends its global IT-as-a-service offerings and information security expertise.
Peter Altabef, president, Dell Services, said, "SecureWorks is a recognised industry leader in information security services and its offerings and expertise will immediately enhance our solutions portfolio."
Last year, Dell and SecureWorks established a partnership to provide a portfolio of security services for mid-sized businesses. The service offered 24/7 security monitoring, monitoring and management of firewalls and security devices, security assessments and web application scanning.
