PrimeLending banks on HP to secure vital assets

25 Aug 2011 Palo Alto - Residential mortgage originator PrimeLending in the USA has selected HP TippingPoint to improve security for virtualized environments and reduce time spent on security administration by up to 40 percent. PrimeLending, a Dallas-based residential mortgage originator, is the 13th largest mortgage lender in the United States, with 240 locations in 35 states and more than 2,000 employees. Last year the company produced in excess of $7.7 billion in residential loans.

As PrimeLending's business grew, the company needed to upgrade its infrastructure, which included virtualizing more than half of its critical applications. The company’s legacy security solutions were unable to provide deep insight into the data exchanged between the new virtual machines. Without proper insight and control, many of PrimeLending’s vital assets could have been vulnerable to attack.

"In order to protect one of our most valuable assets - our customer data - we needed to rethink our approach to security as we virtualized our environment", stated Johnny Hernandez, vice president, Information Security, PrimeLending. "With HP TippingPoint solutions, we have added extra measures of security to help protect our virtual assets and have reduced time spent on security administration in the process."

PrimeLending deployed two HP TippingPoint S660N Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) appliances and 50 HP TippingPoint vControllers to secure 25 servers hosting hundreds of virtual machines. This has enabled the company to provide automatic and consistent network protection as virtual machines are created or moved across the enterprise.

Additional benefits include:

  • Decreased security administration time by 40 percent with hands-off security monitoring and automatic application of security policies;
  • Increased insight into virtual machine traffic with real-time deep-packet inspection;
  • Reduced complexity with a common, consistent security framework that spans physical and virtual servers with one appliance;
  • Real time security protection with intrusion-prevention intelligence from HP's Digital Vaccine Labs (DVLabs), delivering filters to the HP TippingPoint IPS which provides zero-day protection against the industry's latest malicious attacks.

HP TippingPoint security solutions form an integral part of the HP FlexNetwork architecture, the industry's only unified architecture for the data centre, campus and branch, enabling enterprises to fully harness the power of media-rich content, virtualization, mobility and Cloud computing.

Security is a key component of an Instant-On Enterprise that embeds technology in everything it does to serve customers, employees, partners and citizens with everything they need, instantly.

HP will be demonstrating its networking products and services at VMworld 2011, August 29 - September 1 at the Venetian and Wynn hotels in Las Vegas.
