Dell Offers Off-Host BIOS Verification for Commercial PCs

The new BIOS verification solution is designed to protect Dell’s commercial PCs from malware during the boot process.

Dell has unveiled a new post-boot BIOS verification solution†for its commercial PCs, which allows customers to ensure their device remains free from malware during the boot process.

The post-boot BIOS verification solution will be integrated on the company’s commercial PCs with the purchase of the Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise license. Now available, the Dell Data Protection | Endpoint Security Suite Enterprise is an endpoint security suite that integrates Cylance technology and employs artificial intelligence to protect against the execution of advanced persistent threats and malware including zero day attacks and targeted attacks such as spear phishing and ransomware.

The new BIOS verification functionality uses a secure cloud environment to compare and test an individual BIOS image against the official measurements held with Dell offsite. By conducting this test in an off-device environment, says Dell, users can be assured that the post-boot image is not compromised as the testing takes place in a secure cloud platform and not on a potentially infected device.

“The growing complexity of BIOS-specific attacks, and with new malware variants possessing the ability to reinstall themselves within the BIOS, organizations need a more sophisticated way to know that their systems have not been compromised. 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,” says Brett Hansen, executive director, Data Security Solutions, Dell.

The BIOS verification feature will initially be available on Dell’s range of commercial PCs with a 6th Generation Intel chipset, which includes the 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.
