VxRail is designed with security built in and deployed following security best practices. Users are authenticated and authorized with the appropriate level of access. VxRail clusters are easily configured with data-at-rest encryption to safeguard the confidentiality of the information contained default network configuration segments traffic, and with tools such as RecoverPoint for VM, ensuring that applications and services can be quickly recovered if the integrity of the data is compromised. These security features are fundamental and inherent to the VxRail Appliance.
However, protecting an environment from today’s threats requires “defense in-depth” with multiple layers of security. The networks that connect the applications and services that run on the VxRail Appliance to the users that consume them must be protected, and the applications and services themselves must also be secured. Firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, antivirus/malware, endpoint protection, as well as security operations and management are all part of a multilayer defense. Only Dell Technologies has the full breadth of technologies and services to help you fully secure your environment.
The size of your organization and where your organization is along its IT transformational journey will determine the appropriate approach. Some environments may be working within existing security frameworks while others can take advantage of the opportunity to transform their security operations as they transform their IT infrastructure. Organizations often leverage many different vendors as part of their security program, which adds complexity that increases risk. Included in the Dell Technology family are RSA and SecureWorks; both help you manage risk and protect your digital assets. Only Dell Technologies can provide a single vendor relationship with deep security expertise worldwide and an ecosystem of thousands of partners. The following figure illustrates the Power of Dell to help you manage risk and protect your data.
