Dell offers the Latitude 10 tablet device for business users where security of data is of significant importance. To make the tablet more enticing to its intended clientele, Dell has launched a new version of the tablet, one that is appropriately named Latitude 10 Enhanced Security Tablet. The new security features the tablet now boasts of include a fingerprint reader and smart card reader. The latter is the first to be seen on a tablet running Windows 8. The latter has also entailed slight modification to the tablet’s rear, one end of which bumps out a bit to allow for the insertion of the smartcard.
Other security features the tablet boasts of include “Microsoft BitLocker Drive Encryption,” “Computrace Support,” “Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2,” along with “Dell Data Protection.” The above security feature makes the device just right for its intended application in healthcare, finance, and government agencies. Dell has stated the built-in security features make the tablet comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the Federal information Processing Standard (FIPS).
However, all of the security enhancements come at a cost, $200 over the base price of $579, making the Latitude 10 Enhanced Security Tablet cost $779 for the version with 64 GB of storage.
