Dell this morning announced that it is to acquire SecureWorks, a provider of information security services. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

SecureWorks offers a number of ‘Security-as-a-Service’ solutions and says it currently processes more than 13 billion security events and sees more than 30,000 malware specimens on a daily basis.

The company, founded in 1999, adds that it has more than 1,500 banks and credit unions as managed security services clients and is protecting trillions of dollars in financial assets.

SecureWorks has approximately 700 employees and projects FY 2010 revenue of more than $120 million.

For Dell, the acquisition is a way to expand its portfolio of IT-as-a-Service solutions. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in early 2011.

Dell says it plans to maintain SecureWorks’ current operations and continue to make investments in enhanced security offerings.
