Dell follows a “shift-left” approach to security that ensures that security is baked into every process in the development life cycle. The Dell Secure Development Lifecycle (SDL) defines security controls based on industry standards that Dell product teams adopt while developing new features and functionality. Dell SDL includes both analysis activities and prescriptive proactive controls around key risk areas.
Dell strives to help our customers minimize risk associated with security vulnerabilities in our products. Our goal is to provide customers with timely information, guidance, and mitigation options to address vulnerabilities. The Dell Product Security Incident Response Team (Dell PSIRT) is chartered and responsible for coordinating the response and disclosure for all product vulnerabilities that are reported to Dell. Dell employs a rigorous process to continually evaluate and improve our vulnerability response practices and regularly benchmarks those practices against the rest of the industry. Dell has an ingrained culture of security.
