Dell doesn't include that much software, which is a good thing for a notebook that will be used in a professional environment. There are a few applications, though, mostly pertaining to security and control of the notebook. Dell Command Update offers Dell software updates. Dell's Security Tools software allows you to setup system security.
Dell Digital Delivery will bring you software you bought through Dell, such as Dell Data Protection that encrypts the data on your device. Dell's SupportAssist offers the ability to remotely diagnose any PC problems.
Dell Command Power Manager monitors battery usage and can help you manage how system power is regulated, and the battery is drained. Dell Audio allows you to control audio system levels. You also can access the MAXXAUDIO PRO settings to enhance the speaker and microphone levels and performance.
Dell's UEFI is very much like a software application for your hardware. You can control everything from custom RGB keyboard settings to system security. TPM 2.0 allows you to control the type of encryption the device uses, you can set passwords for every single device, and set up stealth mode and choose what devices to turn off. It's almost like a glorified control panel that lets you choose hardware behavior depending on battery or AC power modes.
By default TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot are enabled, but Computrace is deactivated. There is also a Data Wipe feature that will wipe internal storage when you boot. The Latitude 14 Extreme Rugged is built for secure and sensitive environments and to protect data if you don't trust the UEFI you can just pull the SSD and destroy it yourself.
