Dell Announces Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Solution

Dell Announces Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Solution Homeland Security TodayAs the cybersecurity landscape continues to evolve, artificial intelligence and machine learning will play an increasingly significant role in combatting today’s increasingly sophisticated and damaging security threats, according to Dell. Earlier this month,

Dell announced the availability of the Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise, which integrates artificial intelligence and machine learning technology from endpoint security company Cylance, to prevent advanced persistent threats and malware.

"The combined Dell and Cylance advanced threat protection capability makes for the world’s most secure computing platforms,” said Stuart McClure, CEO, Cylance. “Global organizations, through Dell, can now feel confident in their ability to prevent a cyber attack from being successful. Whether an errant email link via a phishing attempt, invisible web site malicious software download or advanced nation-state targeted attack, we can stop them.”

Dell also announced the availability of a new post-boot Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) verification functionality for Dell commercial PCs, which enables the device to remain free of malware during the boot process. The cloud-based security tool extends security throughout the entire device lifecycle and provides greater visibility for administrators wanting to stop malicious BIOS attacks.

“The growing complexity of BIOS-specific attacks, and with new malware variants possessing the ability to reinstall themselves within the BIOS, organizations need a more sophisticated way to know that their systems have not been compromised,” said Brett Hansen, Executive Director, Data Security Solutions, Dell. “Dell’s unique post-boot BIOS verification technology for its commercial PCs gives IT the assurance that employees’ systems are secure every time they use the device, making them the most secure in the industry.”

Cylance says the new solutions stops 99 percent of malware and advanced persistent threats—which is above the average 50 percent efficacy rating of many traditional anti-virus solutions. According to Dell, the Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise is the only endpoint security suite available today that integrates Cylance technology.

“The general availability of Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise is a huge advantage for Dell customers,” said Ray Barth, Manager of Network Operations, Citation Oil & Gas. “We were looking for an improved approach to endpoint protection and reduction/elimination of the time that support staff has to spend addressing endpoint breaches; we made a strategic decision to replace our legacy server and client software.”

Barth continued, “After implementing Cylance we realized significant benefits in accuracy, visibility, and control. Incidents that have required support staff to put hands on a device have dropped to zero and dormant malware previously undiscovered has been blocked.”
