The new Dell Technologies Managed Detection and Response powered by Secureworks® Taegis™XDR provides 24/7 security across endpoint devices, data center networks and cloud environments, improving customers’ security posture while significantly reducing the burden on IT teams.
“Keeping IT environments secure is a constantly moving target as malicious actors continue to refine, automate and broaden their attack strategies,” said Doug Schmitt, president, Dell Technologies Services. “It’s challenging to keep up, especially for smaller security teams. With Dell Technologies Managed Detection and Response, Dell helps businesses shift from a reactive to proactive security stance through our services, cybersecurity expertise, global reach and Secureworks technology.”
How Managed Detection and Response Service Works

Designed for organizations with 50 endpoints or more, this service combines the power of the Secureworks Taegis security analytics platform and the expertise of Dell Technologies security analysts, gained through years of helping organizations worldwide to better protect their businesses.
