Dell Latitude 10 Enhanced Security Tablet Meets the Security, Manageability and Reliability Needs of Government Agencies, Financial Institutions and Healthcare Organizations
ROUND ROCK, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Dell today introduced the Latitude
10 enhanced security configuration, a business-ready tablet designed
to address the costly and time consuming management and security
challenges faced by organizations deploying tablets. The Dell (News - Alert) Latitude
10 is ideal for highly regulated industries such as government agencies,
financial institutions and healthcare organizations and builds upon
Dell's heritage of delivering trusted business PCs with industry-leading
manageability, security and reliability.
Study Reveals Multiple IT Challenges of Deploying Tablets in
A recent Dell and Intel (News - Alert)-commissioned Harris
Interactive online survey2 of 204 U.S. healthcare IT
decision makers highlights the tablet management challenges faced by
organizations today. The results show that tablets are increasingly
becoming a standard IT device (51 percent of the healthcare
organizations surveyed have deployed them). However, other studies show
tablets can cost significantly more time and money to manage than other
standard Windows-based devices such as laptops and desktops. According
to the results of the Harris survey:
On average, those institutions managing tablets spend an estimated
$2,235.20 configuring these devices to work within their
organizations. These costs are often several times more than the
actual expense of acquiring the device.
Fifty-one percent of tablet using institutions report that the devices
required additional software or tools beyond what is used to manage
laptops and desktops.
Forty-two percent of IT decision makers in tablet using organizations
spent between 10 and 29 minutes per tablet to achieve the same level
of security inherent in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chips.
Forty-four percent of those in tablet using organizations reported
that there are applications that are currently used in their
organization on desktop and laptop computers that cannot currently be
accessed on tablets.
These results demonstrate that the introduction of tablets into
enterprise environments has created a more expensive and difficult
management process for IT managers in multiple industries. The Dell
Latitude 10 was designed to overcome these challenges by combining a
great user experience with ease of management and deployment by IT. The
Latitude 10 fits easily and securely into existing IT environments to
help improve IT efficiency and decrease total cost-of-ownership. Because
it is managed like any standard Windows-based laptop, the Latitude 10 is
significantly easier to deploy and manage than the Apple (News - Alert) iPad in large
scale enterprise implementations. According to third-party testing
performed by Principled
Technologies1, when compared to the iPad the Latitude 10
Up to 17 times faster and 94 percent less expensive to deploy saving
approximately 580 hours in system prep and applications installation.
Up to 99 percent faster for software updates, saving approximately 197
hours with automated updates.
Up to 85 percent cheaper per device to maintain over a three-year
Industry-Leading Tablet Security
10 tablet, powered by the dual core Intel® Atom™ processor Z2760,
delivers more hardware, authentication, data protection, tracking and
recovery security features than any other tablet device on the market
tody and is ideal for organizations that must comply with stringent
regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Federal Information
Processing Standard (FIPS). The Latitude 10 enhanced security
configuration is the only dual-authentication Windows 8 tablet with both
an integrated smart card and fingerprint reader, in addition to the
Latitude 10's already robust security features that include:
Dell Data Protection|Access providing an integrated end point security
management suite that utilizes the fingerprint and smart card reader
in the Latitude 10 as well as third-party security devices. A Dell
wizard provides simple setup.
Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 hardware to allow networks to check
device integrity and to assign full trust.
BitLocker Drive Encryption.
Support for stealth tracking software to allow the recovery of
lost or stolen devices.
A Noble Lock slot for added hardware security.
"Other tablets being deployed in business environments can cause more
harm than good in the long run with unforeseen management costs and
unsecure data protection and access," said Neil Hand, vice president of
tablets and performance PCs, Dell. "With Latitude 10 enhanced security
configuration, our customers will be able to give their workers the
mobility and productivity they want while having the peace of mind they
can easily enforce and adhere to some of the most rigorous security
"While tablets can improve access to patient information for clinicians
at the point of care, healthcare IT decision-makers should be informed
about potential side-effects," said Andrew Litt, M.D., Dell's Chief
Medical Officer. "The time and expense to connect, manage and secure
these devices could be nearly five times the device's purchase price2,
which can be a significant concern for most healthcare institutions.
Dell's Latitude 10 tablet and integrated solutions like Mobile Clinical
Computing address these concerns by simplifying device management and
ensuring that information is both secure and accessible for patient
"In our testing and analysis we found substantial advantages in managing
the Dell Latitude 10 over an Apple iPad in an enterprise SCCM
environment," said Bill Catchings, co-founder of Principled
Technologies. "Our analysis found that these advantages would translate
to significant cost savings, especially when managing large numbers of
