Dell Buys SecureWorks

Hmm, didn’t see THAT one coming.  Dell has just added to its security arsenal with the acquisition of SecureWorks, an Information Security services provider out of Atlanta Georgia.  Terms of the deal don’t appear to be public.  Dell says that it will use SecureWorks’ industry leading Security-as-a-Service solutions including Managed-Security Services, Security and Risk Consulting Services and Threat Intelligence services to expand Dell’s global IT-as-a-Service offerings and information security expertise.

SecureWorks serves over 2900 clients in 70 countries, including more than 15% of the Fortune 500 crowd.  The company has approximately 700 employees and projects Fiscal Year 2010 revenue of more than $120 million.  Gartner places SecureWorks in the Leaders quadrant of its “Magic Quadrant” for MSSPs.
