· Dell’s latest commercial notebooks, 2-in-1s, tablets and desktops are thinner, lighter, faster, and more beautiful than ever before
· New PCs can increase productivity by up to 50% and reduce security concerns with built-in data protection software
· Windows 10 will affect commercial organizations and how IT can plan for the next wave of PCs and devices
Older PCs are a risk due to a lack of robust hardware-based security, older processors, and outdated operating systems. This Cheat Sheet paper discusses the points you should consider when selecting notebooks and laptops for your mobile and remote workforce. Download this paper today to learn about how combining the right hardware upgrades with newer OS options and endpoint management software can provide the needed protection against today’s security risks.
GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information.
While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.

With data breaches at an all-time high, the time is now for organisations to identify and protect all personal EU data, and drive towards compliance to the GDPR–failure to do so will lead to significant disruption of business. What’s more, adhering to a compliance and standards based framework can ultimately help the business attract and retain more customers. In the case of the GDPR, compliance demonstrates the organisation’s investments in security, privacy, and customer care.
Data—dynamic, in demand and distributed—is challenging to secure. But you need to protect sensitive data, whether it’s stored on premises, off-site, or in big-data, private- or hybrid-cloud environments. Protecting sensitive data can take many forms, but nearly any organization needs to keep its data accessible, protect data from loss or compromise, and comply with a raft of regulations and mandates. These can include the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Even in the cloud, where you may have less immediate control, you must still control your sensitive data—and compliance mandates still apply.

The types of threats targeting enterprises are vastly different than they were just a couple of decades ago. Today, successful enterprise attacks are rarely executed by the “lone wolf” hacker and instead come from highly sophisticated and professional cybercriminal networks. These networks are driven by the profitability of ransomware and the sale of confidential consumer data, intellectual property, government intelligence, and other valuable data. While traditional PC-based antivirus solutions can offer some protection against these attacks, organizations need highly adaptive and much faster mobile threat defense (MTD) for enterprise devices.

Does your PC lifecycle management (PCLM) reflect the issues associated with mobile users? Many organizations face expensive inefficiencies by not managing mobile assets effectively. These inefficiencies include dispersed and manual data collection, and inventory tools that are dependent on a connection to the company network.
Fraud preventative solutions are designed to avert new accounts fraud before it occurs. The strategic advantage of fraud prevention therefore lies in the ability avoid losses to institutions and consumers.
All merchants and service providers that handle, transmit, store, or process information concerning credit cards are required to be compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards requirements (PCI), or face contract penalties or even termination by the credit card issuers. This paper discusses the 12 requirements of PCI, and how Secure Computing's portfolio of security solutions can help enterprises meet and exceed them.
As incidents of identity theft and fraud skyrocket, companies are scrambling to keep up with complex attacks and effectively safeguard consumer information. If you store, process, or transmit cardholder data, comprehensive visibility, actionable intelligence and the ability to respond rapidly to threats has become paramount.

Protecting individual and financial data, retaining data, and meeting e-discovery requirements are common compliance requirements across geographies and industries. Finding accurate, usable, and cost-effective solutions for meeting these requirements can make the difference between achieving compliance goals or leaving the organization vulnerable through unsecured use of sensitive data. Trend Micro Data Protection solutions for endpoint data leak protection, email encryption, and email archiving help organizations meet their compliance requirements – easily and cost-effectively.
Data breaches can carry very serious consequences, such as the revelation in February 2008 that that the Hannaford Brothers chain of supermarkets lost more than four million debit and credit card numbers to hackers. The bottom line is that organizations must implement Data Loss Prevention (DLP) systems to protect themselves against the growing array of threats they face from inadvertent and malicious data leaks from email, instant messaging and other systems.
In January of 2008, a random sample of online technical newsletter subscribers at midsize companies (100-5,000 employees) received an email invitation to participate in a survey about data protection solutions use at their organizations. The goal of the survey was to identify sources of and/or reasons for information security breaches, and to better understand how businesses are planning to protect themselves against data leaks. The following report presents top line results of the study.
Companies rely on knowledge assets, such as product formulas and customer databases. VPNs and network monitors can protect proprietary information from outsiders; but, they won't do much to prevent access by internal users. With the popularity of wireless networks, USB drives and other portable devices, it's all too easy for insiders to leak key data. This white paper explains how Trend Micro LeakProof 3.0 protects sensitive data at rest, in use, and in motion.
Encryption will help to protect data against unauthorized access by outsiders from lost or stolen devices such as laptops, thumb drives, and other removable media. But it does not protect against the insider threat-employees and contractors with authorized access to data who mistakenly or maliciously leak your most valuable assets.
