Dell SecureWorks unveils advanced endpoint threat detection (AETD) managed service

Enterprise security vendor Dell SecureWorks has launched Advanced Endpoint Threat Detection (AETD) managed service.

The service is currently available to clients and prospects in North America and will be available in EMEA in the latter part of Q2, 2014, said Dell SecureWorks.

Dell SecureWorks’ Advanced Threat Services portfolio includes Managed Advanced Malware Protection (MAMP) service, and the Targeted Threat Hunting service.

The Dell managed AETD service features Dell SecureWorks’ Endpoint Threat Intelligence technology and Carbon Black from Bit9, an endpoint threat detection platform.

Thanks to the technology capabilities, Dell said SecureWorks’ security analysts can determine if an organization’s endpoints have been compromised, how they were compromised and how best to eradicate the threat.

Christina Richmond, program director for IDC’s Infrastructure Security Services research practice, said: “Managed security services which help detect malicious activity on the network and the endpoint, before it can transpire into a full blown compromise, gives organizations a significant advantage over cyber attackers, and is invaluable in battling today’s cyber criminals.“

It is critical that organizations employ comprehensive and robust network security, as well as always on 24×7 Endpoint Security.

Michael Viscuso, Bit9’s chief strategy officer and co-founder of Carbon Black, said: “By leveraging the Bit9 + Carbon Black endpoint sensor in its AETD solution, Dell SecureWorks is ensuring that its clients have continuous, real-time visibility into all activity on every endpoint and server.”
