HP has unveiled a series of new cyber security products and services designed to allow enterprises to better manage risks, extend their protection capabilities, and disrupt the adversary marketplace.

The new offering includes solutions capable of detecting and preventing attacks in real time.

For instance, the HP Threat Central is a community-sourced security intelligence platform designed to facilitate automated collaboration between organizations.

For addressing risks introduced by the cloud and the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, HP recommends the HP TippingPoint Next-Generation Firewall, which provides granular application visibility and control.

HP SureStart is said to be the industry’s first self-healing technology that automatically restores the BIOS in case it becomes corrupted.

For security operations teams that want to run more effectively, the company recommends HP ArcSight and HP Fortify which include technologies such as HP ArcSight Application View, HP ArcSight Management Center, HP ArcSight Risk Insight and HP ArcSight Enterprise Security Manager.

The HP Managed Security Services (MSS) are designed to aid internal teams in detecting threats within 11.9 minutes. According to the company, 92% of major incidents are resolved within 2 hours after being identified.

HP MSS and HP Enterprise Services include the HP Supplier Security Compliance Solution, HP Distributed Denial of Services (DDoS) Protection Services, and the HP Continuous Monitoring for the U.S. Public Sector, which helps government agencies identify and report vulnerabilities in real time.

An HP solution that’s especially designed to address BYOD issues is HP Security Risk and Controls Advisory Services for Mobility.

“An organization extends well beyond its four walls – it's made up of a vast ecosystem of suppliers, devices that can go anywhere and, not to mention, a web that is literally worldwide,” commented Arthur Wong, senior vice president and general manager, Enterprise Security Services, HP.

“HP helps clients reduce risk and manage the complexities of protecting the flow of information – both internally and externally – enabling them to focus on driving innovation.”
