Dell SecureWorks, an industry leader in information security services, now provides Server Protection Services for physical, virtual and cloud-based servers so organizations can secure their servers with an all-in-one service.

The Monitored Server Protection Service, which includes 24x7 security-event monitoring, health and uptime monitoring and a unified customer portal, is currently available for physical and virtual servers in cloud-hosted and on-premise environments. The Managed Server Protection Solution includes all of the latter services, plus policy creation/management, health management and a hosted management console. It is planned to launch in Q1 2014. 



“Cyber-attacks are becoming more sophisticated every day so it’s imperative for organizations to adopt a multi-layer protection strategy for their high-value servers,” said Dan DeRosa, director of product management at Dell SecureWorks. “Our Incident Response experts and Counter Threat Unit (CTU) researchers continually investigate breaches where hackers use a small entry point to infiltrate a company’s network and access critical servers. The Server Protection Services, powered by threat context from our incident response and research team, provides a strong security posture.”
