SecureWorks Acquisition Complete
SecureWorks is now Dell SecureWorks.
The Texas-based computer giant said today it has completed its acquisition of the Atlanta-based provider of information security services to more than 3,000 customers worldwide, including more than 600 credit unions.
The sale was announced last month. Terms were not disclosed. Dell has said it plans to retain what is now Dell SecureWorks' operations and staff and expand its offerings as part of Dell's "IT-as-a-Service" offerings.
Ten-year-old Dell SecureWorks now employs about 700 people and offers 24/7 monitoring that includes processing more than 13 billion security events, including more than 30,000 malware specimens, a day.
"SecureWorks will be the foundational platform for Dell's security solutions. Dell looks forward to bringing these solutions to customers around the world," said Steve Schuckenbrock, president of Dell Services.
"The combination of our security expertise and threat visibility with Dell resources creates a tremendous opportunity for Dell SecureWorks to shape the future of security globally," said Mike Cote, the former SecureWorks CEO who is now vice president of Dell SecureWorks.
