re: Dell Acquires Security Specialist SonicWall
I have to wonder if Dell's going to integrate the command and control of these (formerly) Sonicwall units into their KACE systems management product. With KACE already being able to deploy endpoint security package definitions, and Sonicwall's ability to ensure that endpoints don't get Internet connectivity unless they are up to date, it seems like a no-brainer.

It's an interesting acquisition - giving SMBs the opportunity to buy an entire Dell-branded, end to end solution.

And with regards to Dave Johnson's comment on how Dell's clients want them to participate in the systems management space - I have to wonder if he's familiar with the KACE product line. I'll admit that I'm biased in that I love working with KACE, but it seems like Dell corporate is treating it like an unwanted kitten that got left on the doorstep.
