Building a Better World Together
I have been thinking a lot lately about the events of 2020 which have truly changed our world – from the COVID-19 global pandemic, to the devastation of individuals, families and businesses that are going through the toughest of times. These unusual times have renewed our focus on the invaluable role every individual plays in our world.
At the heart of our company is a singular purpose: to secure human progress by outpacing and outmaneuvering adversaries. To do this, we must work together as a community and continue to foster an environment – both professionally and personally – that brings out the best in each of us.
Internally, we continue to have conversations about racial justice and socioeconomic inequality and what we can do as a company. While Secureworks has no tolerance for discrimination of any form in our workplace or employment practices, we know there is more we can – and will do – to foster a culture where our teammates can express their views and opinions. We also support and encourage our teammates to be responsible citizens and participate in political and civic activities in their communities where they live and work to make a difference. A few initial steps that we are taking internally as a company include revamping our training resources to better address unconscious bias, privilege, insider/outsider dynamics and gender role conditioning. We are also doing companywide forums to keep conversations going and encouraging volunteerism and giving in under-represented communities.
Externally, we are revisiting ways we can do more with our partnerships with organizations that benefit people of color and others that are under-represented. This is a global issue and our Company’s headquarters sit in Atlanta, Georgia – a city where civil rights has long been championed. We will work to stay true to the goals of the civil rights movement.
As a part of Dell Technologies, we’re also looking at how we can play an even greater role in the Dell Technologies Progress Made Real 2030 moonshot goals.
We are committed to doing our very best for our customers, our partners, our teammates, and our communities. It starts with listening, being open to the conversations that are not always comfortable and acting on core values that are foundational to any great culture – things like integrity, inclusion, how we act and how we support each other.
Join me in our Secureworks’ social impact commitment to make the world a better place together.
Chief Executive Officer, Secureworks

An Updated Letter to Our Customers & Partners from Secureworks CEO Mike Cote
Simplifying how we protect our customers: COVID-19
Dear Customers and Partners,
At Secureworks, our purpose to secure human progress is our rallying cry. It’s why each of our team members around the globe wake-up every day and stand in the gap against cybercriminals on behalf of our customers. Finding new ways to live our purpose has great meaning to all of us.
And so, the Secureworks team and I have been thinking about how we can get our solutions in the hands of more organizations who need protection like never before.
I am pleased to share with you that Secureworks is bringing our best-of-breed solutions to help community-critical organizations like healthcare, education, and state and local government do their best work at a time filled with uncertainty, new ways of working, and the necessity for a remote workforce.
Effective today, we announced that we are reducing both the financial burden and implementation time for the following solutions
- Healthcare, education, and municipalities with mandates for public safety and essential services are eligible for access to the benefits of a 40-hour retainer for six months at no upfront fee, along with expert incident response consulting, with the Flexible Incident Response Cybersecurity program.
- In order to help organizations who are currently in distress and resource challenged given today’s environment, we are committing to Crisis Deployment of our Managed Detection and Response (MDR) offering, which allows organizations instant access to Secureworks expertise 24/7 and the ability to recognize and respond to malicious activity faster.
- We have also brought Remote Access Vulnerability Assessments to market, and have already delivered many of them for customers, giving them specific action plans to assess and secure their complete environment. We know new remote working environments are being built in real-time. We want customers to have the right tools to pressure test the security of these new networks.
These are only a few examples of how we’re innovating in cybersecurity and listening to the ever-changing needs of our customers. And as a 20-year old company, we’re in this for the long-haul and know our customers count on us each and every day.
Our customers, partners, and communities are looking to us—not just for our cybersecurity expertise, but for our shared humanity. We keep companies secure as they enable remote workforces. We remain committed to outpacing and outmaneuvering threat actors who are targeting companies as they work quickly to ensure business continuity. We are here for our customers and the communities we call home, in locations all over the world.
At Secureworks, we secure the technology that makes the world a better place, and we have to protect not just data, but each other, so that the work of advancing potential moves forward. Let us know how we can help you with your needs in these challenging times. We stand ready and we are here for you.
