Dell offers tablet with enhanced security
Dubai, February 28, 2013
Dell today introduced the Latitude 10 Enhanced Security, a business-ready tablet designed to address the costly and time consuming management and security challenges faced by organisations deploying tablets.
The Dell Latitude 10 is ideal for highly regulated industries such as government agencies, financial institutions and healthcare organisations and builds upon Dell’s heritage of delivering trusted business PCs with industry-leading manageability, security and reliability, said statement.
The Latitude 10 fits easily and securely into existing IT environments to help improve IT efficiency and decrease total cost of ownership. Because it is managed like any standard Windows-based laptop, the Latitude 10 is significantly easier to deploy and manage than the Apple iPad in large scale enterprise implementations, it said.
The Latitude 10 tablet, powered by the dual core Intel Atom processor Z2760, delivers more hardware, authentication, data protection, tracking and recovery security features than any other tablet device on the market today and is ideal for organisations that must comply with stringent regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS), said Dell.
The Latitude 10 enhanced security configuration is the only dual-authentication Windows 8 tablet with both an integrated smart card and fingerprint reader, in addition to the Latitude 10’s already robust security features, it said.
“Other tablets being deployed in business environments can cause more harm than good in the long run with unforeseen management costs and unsecure data protection and access,” said Neil Hand, vice president of tablets and performance PCs, end-user computing, Dell.
“With Latitude 10 enhanced security configuration, our customers will be able to give their workers the mobility and productivity they want while having the peace of mind they can easily enforce and adhere to some of the most rigorous security regulations.”
“In our testing and analysis we found substantial advantages in managing the Dell Latitude 10 over an Apple iPad in an enterprise SCCM environment,” said Bill Catchings, co-founder of Principled Technologies. “Our analysis found that these advantages would translate to significant cost savings, especially when managing large numbers of these devices.”
The Dell Latitude 10 Essential edition starts at Dh2,339 with 32G HDD & Win8 Pro; Standard Edition starts at Dh2,999 with 64G HDD & Win8 Pro; Enhanced Security Edition starts at Dh3,699 with 64G HDD, finger print reader, smartcard reader & Win8 Pro, the company said. - TradeArabia News Service
