Computer solutions company Dell Malaysia said its commercial PCs have become even more secure with the new BIOS verification and advanced threat protection technology.

During the announcement of the availability of the Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise, Dell Malaysia general manager, Commercial Business, KT Ong said the solution l integrated Cylance technology using artificial intelligence and machine learning to proactively prevent advanced persistent threats and malware.

"With the growing complexity of BIOS-specific attacks, and with new malware variants possessing the ability to reinstall themselves within the BIOS, organisations need a more sophisticated way to know that their systems have not been compromised," said Ong n

"Dell's unique post-boot BIOS verification technology for its commercial PCs gives IT the assurance that employees' systems are secure every time they use the device, making them the most secure in the industry," he said, adding that Dell was the only vendor to provide off-host verification, ensuring all devices remain secure through the boot process.

 This new post-boot BIOS verification solution for Dell commercial PCs, will allow customers to ensure their device remained free from malware during the boot process, said Ong.

The post-boot BIOS verification solution will be integrated on Dell commercial PCs with the purchase of the Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise license, he added.

The new BIOS verification functionality uses a secure cloud environment to compare and test an individual BIOS image against the official measurements held in the Dell BIOS lab.

The BIOS verification feature will initially be available on Dell's range of commercial PCs with a 6th Generation Intel chipset, which includes the widely  portfolio of Latitude PCs that were recently announced at CES, as well as select Dell Precision, OptiPlex, and XPS PCs and Dell Venue Pro tablets.

Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise is now available for both Dell commercial PCs and as a security solution across heterogeneous IT environments.
