Dell Wins SC Magazine’s Award for Best Managed Security Service
ATLANTA, Feb. 29, 2012-–Dell SecureWorks, a leading global provider of information security services, has been recognized with SC Magazine's 2012 Reader Trust Award as the company with the Best Managed Security Service in the U.S. for the sixth time since 2006. The announcement was made February 28 at the U.S. SC Awards Gala, held in conjunction with the annual RSA Conference in San Francisco.
The security landscape facing organizations today is extremely complex and changing at a rapid pace. Many IT security groups have limited budgets and even smaller in-house security teams. Yet, they are still held responsible for defending their companies from new attack types, managing disparate security tools, and securely integrating cloud and mobile solutions into their organizations, all while ensuring that their company is compliant with industry regulations. IT security groups are simply stretched too thin.
Dell SecureWorks understands these challenges and provides a portfolio of information security services to help security teams focus their resources where they make the most sense. Dell SecureWorks serves as an extension of an organization’s internal team, helping to fill in the gaps, so an organization can confidently achieve its security objectives.
For its capabilities and focus on customer service, Dell SecureWorks has earned many accolades. As well as being named Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) of the Year at the SC Magazine Awards Europe 2011, it is positioned as a leader in the industry by several key industry analyst firms.
Dell SecureWorks won the “Best Managed Security Service” award after proving the success and overall impact of its security services to the Reader Trust Voting Panel. The voting panel is comprised of high-level IT security executives (CISOs, CIOs, VPs) from all major vertical markets including finance, health care, government, retail, education, etc. Functionality, manageability, ease-of-use and scalability of the product or service, as well as customer service, were considered during the judging process.
In its 15th year, the information security industry’s most prominent accolade, the annual SC Awards, showcase the best solutions, services and professionals, while recognizing achievement and technical excellence.
SC Magazine distinguishes the achievements of the security professionals in the trenches, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the passionate work of government, commercial and nonprofits - all working to help improve global security.
