Dell vCloud, Cloud Dedicated Service and VMware vCenter 5.0 customers can now benefit from Dell SecureWorks’ new add-on cloud security solutions: a Vulnerability Management Service (VMS) and a new Web Application Scanning (WAS) Service.

SecureWorks is also offering cloud customers its Global Threat Intelligence Service, which provides expert analysis on new emerging threats and vulnerabilities.

“Providing organizations with vulnerability and web application assessment services, which are fully managed and specifically designed for cloud environments, along with our Global Threat Intelligence Service, makes the discovery and remediation of vulnerabilities a routine and effortless process,” said Mark Wood of Dell SecureWorks Cloud Security Services.

“We are helping to provide customers with a secure experience while capitalizing on the key benefits the cloud can bring to their organization.”

Vulnerability scans performed at regular intervals and on demand as part of the VMS will ensure that cloud services and applications are always secure.

On the other hand, scans performed via the WAS will focus on web applications, which often represent entry points for cybercriminals.

When security issues are identified, customers are immediately notified and instructed on how to address them.

Both WMS and WAS solutions can be integrated directly into the organization’s virtual datacenter.

These offerings are only the first in a series of security solutions that Dell SecureWorks will be launching in the upcoming period.

“Dell and Dell SecureWorks are committed to ensuring organizations' cloud-based IT assets are safe and secure,” Wood added.

“Dell already employs Dell SecureWorks' award-winning security services to protect the infrastructure of its vCloud Datacenter. Now we are extending three of our key security solutions to Cloud customers so they can feel confident that their cloud-based applications and services are protected from the latest cyber threats.”
