“Dell SecureWorks provides actionable and meaningful data to us in a timely manner. The proactive alerts have proven invaluable.”

“We selected Dell SecureWorks because of the value and expertise of their personnel. Other providers read from a script and/or a product help file when discussing an issue with you. Dell SecureWorks personnel have the sufficient level of detailed knowledge to talk intelligently about the technology and alerts they’re escalating to you.”

“I’ve been able to avoid dedicated 24×7 in-house resources by outsourcing this work to Dell SecureWorks. The Teraguard/Sherlock environment is something that would have also cost us significant capital if we had to buy/build it on our own.”
