Dell Delivers the World's Most Secure Commercial Notebooks

ROUND ROCK, Texas—(BUSINESS WIRE)—September 13, 2007— Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) today announced the world's most secure notebooks with the addition of a managed hardware-based encryption solution on its Latitude D630 and D830. (1)

The industry-first solution delivers improved performance versus software based encryption and automated compliance reports so customers are confident that encryption is enabled.

"Dell is at the forefront of notebook security because it ranks as a top concern for customers in an environment where more data is produced by an increasingly mobile work force," said Margaret Franco, director, Dell Product Group. "The industry-first solution we're announcing today adds to our multi-pronged approach to security that delivers an ironclad assurance of protection."

Robust Security without Deployment or Performance Bottlenecks

As the latest development in Dell's strategy to simplify IT for all its customers, the new data security offering is an easy-to-use and scalable solution that enables comprehensive data protection and automated compliance auditing for lost, stolen or recycled notebooks.

The combination of Seagate(R) Momentus(R) full disk encryption (FDE) hard drive and Wave Systems Corp. EMBASSY(R) solutions provides a number of advantages over software-based encryption, including stronger security, faster performance and always-on encryption.

Customers can securely manage encrypted drives, setup and recover passwords, user management and pre-boot authentication by using Wave's EMBASSY Trust Suite for Dell 3.0 Enterprise software and Embassy Remote Administration Server that allows IT departments to quickly document that all data on a lost notebook was safely encrypted by the HDD.
