Dell’s Air Gap Security Protection

Dell released an air gap version of its Dell Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise solution to address the need for highly-secure industries to keep their endpoints isolated from the Internet, yet still deploy advanced threat protection.

The solution integrates Cylance technology using artificial intelligence and predictive mathematical models to help protect against advanced persistent threats and malware.

Organizations deploying air gap solutions are often unable to take advantage of newer security technologies because they are based on cloud connections. Dell worked with Cylance to enable these organizations to take advantage of next-generation advanced threat protection technologies by creating an on-premises security solution that doesn’t require an Internet connection.

From government to defense organizations, critical infrastructure or the energy and exploration industry, organizations today are working with highly-sensitive information where maintaining the security and integrity of their data is of the utmost importance. In addition, these organizations may be in remote locations, like a military installation or offshore oil rig, where an on-premises solution is essential.

Institutions that operate in a full air gap mode still need to protect against malicious threats, whether Zero Day attacks, internal threats, malicious USB-based (“sneakernet-based”) attacks or other vulnerabilities.
