New HP security focused family of products and offerings

Organizations are under increasing pressure to secure their infrastructure while continuing to enable employees and clients to exchange information. Cloud techniques are pushing this need to a whole other level then the capabilities designed into most environments. Managing the risks associated with this are taking new skills as well, since the rise of mobility, cyber threats, and social media and the associated conflicts of expectations are demanding innovative approaches.


The days of perimeter based (locked down) security are over. Today’s enterprise must be as fluid as the clients served. Sharing information whenever, wherever and on whichever device they choose. This new fluidity requires a complete approach to security to enable interaction while driving operational effectiveness and reducing business risk.


Most enterprises support a patchwork of unrelated products, applications and uncoordinated processes. Security is scattered, with a lack of coordination between people, processes, and technology.  This makes for a fragile environment that is difficult to adjust. It is necessary to actively understand the current state of risk management, security, and breaches.


Yesterday, HP unveiled an expanded and integrated Enterprise Security approach.

They focus first on providing workshops and other approaches to assess the security capabilities in the existing environment.


With that current situation analysis in hand there are a range of tools and services to help organizations either transform themselves or consume security transformation services as required.


The enterprise services organization also provides a wide range of services to help manage their security environment.


Finally, there is an Secure Boardroom approach to provide visibility between and across the enterprise security environment.


Don't expect HP's investments to stop there though.

HP’s depth related to security is quite a bit broader and deeper than most organizations realize. There are thousands of people available across the globe, partners to help as well and numerous research activities currently underway in HP’s various labs to address future needs.
