Dynabook Europe has announced it is partnering with Microsoft to build the most secure Windows devices available today. The new class of Windows 10 Secured-core PCs are designed with deep integration between hardware and software and feature the most advanced CPUs available to ensure resistance to current and future cyber-threats.
Secured-core PCs are intended to handle mission-critical data and protect workers in some of the most data-sensitive industries, such as healthcare providers handling medical records and other personally identifiable information (PII), high profile industries targeted for phishing and other attacks, and businesses that employ mobile workers who require access to business-critical information outside of the office.
Damian Jaume, Managing Director, Dynabook Europe GmbH said, “dramatic developments in digital technologies have fuelled the growth and needs of the mobile workforce. Now in an age of mass data proliferation and an increased threat landscape, organisations need to rapidly adapt to this changing environment. Current network infrastructures were not built with the requirements of today’s security in mind. Devices are often the first line of defence for organisations – but those operating in the most data-sensitive of industries need an added layer of security to ensure comprehensive protection. That is why we’re partnering with Microsoft to develop an integrated hardware and software approach to security.”
The Secured-core PC uses hardware-based security components like Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (TPM) and modern CPUs along with virtualisation-based security (VBS) and Windows Dynamic hypervisor code integrity (HVCI) service to create a secure, hardware-isolated environment that effectively isolates memory and critical components to prevent attacks and unauthorised access to critical parts of the operating system.
David Weston, Partner Director of OS Security, Microsoft Corporation added, “we are pleased to see the announcement from Dynabook today. We have partnered closely with Dynabook to ensure these devices meet Secured-core PC engineering criteria, and we are pleased to see the progress we have made together.”
The dynabook range of 13”, 14”, and 15” Secured-core PCs including the Portégé X30-F, Tecra X40-F and Tecra X50-F are available now. For more information please visit: emea.dynabook.com/secured-core
