Dell MDR, powered by Secureworks Taegis, assumes a role encompassing the monitoring, detection, investigation, and automated response to threats across an organization’s technology infrastructure. Employing analytics derived from the analysis of billions of threat events from thousands of customers, the platform excels in neutralizing threats. When a threat arises, Dell’s team of security analysts conducts investigations in collaboration with customers to contain and remediate attacks.
Secureworks’ suite of solutions is built upon its Security-as-a-Service platform, Taegis, a platform that acquires and interprets telemetry from proprietary and third-party sources. This includes endpoints, networks, cloud applications, email systems, identity systems, and other business applications. Leveraging this telemetry, the platform excels in preventing threats.
The open architecture of Secureworks Taegis, complemented by Dell’s team of security professionals deliver an all-encompassing, fully managed, end-to-end, 24×7 service. This service integrates automation, triage of critical alerts, and incident resolution.
Secureworks and Dell have collaborated for over a decade, supporting their customers in fortifying security. Secureworks is an integral part of the Dell Safeguard and Response portfolio, which comprises an array of threat management solutions. Dell MDR powered by Secureworks Taegis™ XDR is also a pivotal feature of Dell’s recently launched MDR Pro Plus service.
