Earlier this week Dell announced it reached an agreement to acquire Credant, an industry-leading provider of data protection solutions to control, manage and secure data sent from endpoints to servers, storage, applications and the cloud. Today we have formally closed the transaction and I’m pleased to update that the Credant team is now officially a part of Dell.
The combination of Dell’s leading commercial client portfolio and Credant technology will provide customers with a strengthened security profile and improve their ability to manage their PC estate.
As we commented in our press releases earlier this week, Credant technology is a comprehensive solution that protects data across its full lifecycle. Credant protects and encrypts user and corporate data– from PC to mobile to cloud – which works within enterprises existing systems management processes.
Credant secures more than 2 million endpoints with customers in a variety of industries and offers:
Dell has a long-standing joint development partnership and OEM agreement with Credant and uses its technology in its Dell Data Protection|Encryption solution.
We’re excited to welcome the Credant team to Dell and look forward to a working together on behalf of our customers in 2013.
