Cyberthreats have become more sophisticated, persistent and unpredictable. New research conducted on behalf of HP demonstrates that the volume and complexity of security threats has continued to escalate. More than 50 percent of senior business and technology executives surveyed believe that security breaches within their organizations have increased during the last year. Nearly 30 percent responded that they experienced a security breach by unauthorized internal access, while 20 percent responded that they had experienced an external breach.
Faced with these challenges, organizations need to establish a more sustainable approach to managing security and risk. The HP Enterprise Security Solutions framework addresses this need by delivering overarching information security management capabilities coupled with modern security operations centres and technologies that provide actionable security intelligence.
The expanded portfolio includes new capabilities to help enterprises assess, transform, manage and optimize their security investments.
"Organisations today are quickly realizing the importance of a comprehensive risk management strategy to securing assets across their corporate infrastructures and protecting corporate reputation", stated Jan Zadak, executive vice president, Global Sales and Enterprise Marketing, HP. "HP's extended security portfolio provides the protection that enterprises require, while providing customers, employees, partners and consumers with instant access to the right enterprise assets without compromising risk."
HP is now offering a one-day Enterprise Security Discovery Workshop based on the HP Enterprise Security Solutions framework, which enables clients to identify the interaction required between information management and security operations. The workshop helps clients understand their organisations' vulnerabilities to external and internal threats, identify the critical success factors for a secure enterprise, and create tailored transformation programs based on best practices.
In addition, HP released the HP Digital Vaccine Labs' (DVLabs) Cyber Security Risks Report, which offers clients a detailed look at vulnerability, threat and attack data for the first half of 2011. This semi-annual report helps enterprises to understand the threat landscape so they can assess and adjust their security postures.
By combining market-leading capabilities from ArcSight, an HP company; Fortify, an HP company; and HP TippingPoint, HP has established a foundation for the unified approach to enterprise security. The HP Security Intelligence and Risk Management platform offers advanced correlation, application protection and network defense technology to protect applications and IT infrastructures from sophisticated cyberthreats.
Supported by a wide network of partners, the platform helps organisations reduce risk from existing infrastructures, provide security testing and remediation for existing applications, and establish a foundation to deploy future systems within a secure environment.
To help clients use this transformational approach to risk management, HP announced a full complement of new risk- and security-related offerings:
To help organisations manage their security transformation programs, adopt the best security technologies and choose from flexible sourcing models, HP also introduced new Enterprise Services:
