Dell SecureWorks has expanded its incident response services to offer assessment for advanced threats and denial-of-service attacks.

According to the company, this expansion will help organisations stay abreast of emerging threats, proactively fortify defences, continuously detect and stop cyber attacks, and recover quickly from security breaches.

The three additions include: the advanced threat preparedness assessment service, which assesses organisations' capabilities to resist, detect and respond to an attack by an advanced threat actor; and the advanced threat tabletop exercises that evaluate an organisation's ability to respond to a targeted attack and incorporate intelligence on the tactics, techniques and procedures of targeted actors.

Finally, the denial-of-service (DoS) preparedness assessment services will help organisations understand their abilities to withstand those attacks and will assess users to see if they have a tested response methodology in place. The services include capabilities reviews, tabletop exercises and DoS/DDoS stress testing under real-world conditions.

Kevin Hanes, executive director of security and risk consulting at Dell SecureWorks, said: “Companies have been increasingly seeking our incident response expertise because of our unified security capabilities. Our responders have access to intelligence before their boots even hit the ground so they can help organisations recover quickly from security breaches.”
