A clear separation of business and personal content makes working with the storage service easier. In addition, new products for PCs and thin clients and hard drive encryption provide more hardware-level security.
Since the end of 2013, the cloud storage service Dropbox and Dell are cooperating . With the Dell Data Protection | Cloud Edition extends Dell Cloud’s cloud service and protects it against unauthorized access. With the Dell Data Protection | Cloud Edition allows users to share data on any device.
A remote wipe feature also allows administrators to remotely wipe sensitive data in an account through Dell Data Protection cloud output .
Now Dell supports Data Protection | Cloud Edition also separating business data from private data.

About the Solution Dell Data Protection | Finally, Hardware Crypto Accelerator converts the hard drives of selected Latitude notebooks, OptiPlex desktops, and Precision workstations into 3Gb / s fast, self-encrypting, and tamper-resistant hard drives. How Dell notifies that encryption should not adversely affect the system performance in the process. The HCA technology could also make separate self-encrypting hard drives (SEDs) superfluous.
