HP India’s new security solutions target BYOD and network threats

HP has launched new security solutions – HP Threat Central, TippingPoint Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW), HP ArcSight and HP Fortify and HP SureStart — to assist enterprise CIO in meeting new threats from networks and BYOD.

The new security solutions are expected to assist enterprise CIOs to manage risk and extend security capabilities.

HP does not have any India specific data on security threats to share.

Also, HP India’s market share in the both network and BYOD security market is not known.

But HP, the networking major, is trying to strengthen presence in the rapidly growing security market. The global cybercrime black market has a value of $104 billion per year.

92 percent of Forbes Global 2000 companies reported data breaches in the last 12 months. This growth is due to adversaries forming a more sophisticated and collaborative marketplace through which they share information and advanced data theft tools.

HP’s new products and services enable enterprises to approach their security challenges with a single view of information security, and to manage risk and compliance.

“Enterprises today aren’t facing a single attacker; they are fighting a well-organized, well-funded adversary marketplace,” said Ranndeep Singh Chonker, country manager, HP Enterprise Security Products, India.

Enterprises which are implementing BYOD and struggling at present is a focus area for HP. Average cost of noncompliance is estimated at $13.7 million for global organizations. India specific data is not available.

Devices with Android OS are hub of security threats. But HP does not want about Android devices specifically.

Susanta Bhattacharya, director, Infrastructure Technology Outsourcing (ITO) Portfolio, Enterprise Services, HP India, said: “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.”


How HP controls security threats

HP ArcSight and HP Fortify

The new solution, which will be available in India, offers data-driven security technologies, including HP ArcSight Application View, HP ArcSight Management Center, HP ArcSight Risk Insight and HP ArcSight Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) v6.5c, to empower security operations teams to run more effectively with accelerated and real-time application-level threat detection.

HP SureStart

HP says the new technology automatically restores a system’s PC Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) to its previously safe state if attacked or corrupted, delivering a future proof technological breakthrough to HP EliteBook customers.

The networking major, which competes with Cisco, Juniper Networks, Huawei, etc. is trying to build a new security solution portfolio. (Network security appliance and software market up 4%, Juniper struggles )

HP is trying to bring a number of solutions and address challenges associated with BYOD and enterprise network challenges. These solutions are not new to market. Enterprise CIOs have seen these solutions in different other formats and still faced challenges.
