Dell has introduced two new all-in-one desktop systems aimed at businesses, comprising the Optiplex 9030 with a 23in display and the Optiplex 3030 with a 19in screen, which are claimed to deliver enhanced security features.
Dell describes the OptiPlex 9030 as the most secure all-in-one commercial desktop in its class, as it ships with comprehensive encryption, advanced authentication and malware prevention tools in the Dell Data Protection suite.
This 23in model offers customers a choice of Core i7, Core i5 or Core i3 processors, up to 16GB of memory and up to 500GB of disk or solid state drive (SSD) storage via two internal 2.5in drive bays.
The space-saving design of the Optiplex 9030 features a rotating screen and dual monitor capability, making it not only Dell's thinnest OptiPlex all-in-one, but flexible enough to be used in any office space, according to the firm.
It also includes a full HD webcam with Microsoft Lync Certification, optional discrete graphics and tool-free serviceability. Pricing starts at £689.
The Optiplex 3030 (pictured) has a smaller 19in display and is only available with Intel Core i5 or Core i3 processors, up to 8GB memory and 500GB of disk or solid state drive (SSD) storage.
Heightened security features on this model including a lockable port cover, lock slot support, as well as the Dell Data Protection suite. Pricing for this model starts at £439.
One feature of the Dell Data Protection suite is Protected Workspace, which runs key business applications such as the browser, PDF reader and Microsoft Office inside a contained virtual environment. This prevents any malware in an infected document from attacking the operating system and potentially spreading to other systems on the network, according to Dell.
Buyers of the Optiplex 3030 and 9030 get a one-year subscription to Dell Data Protection suite included in the purchase price, but will have to pay to continue to use it after this.
