Infotech Lead India: HP on Thursday said it is gearing up to address security concerns related to Cloud, mobility and big data initiatives with new security capabilities.
The new security capabilities are aimed at enabling enterprises to assess, transform, optimize and manage their security environments to proactively protect what matters.
“HP helps clients protect what matters most to their organizations by delivering intelligent security solutions that prioritize security resources to help identify threats earlier and enable a faster response time,” said Neelam Dhawan, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Group and Country Managing Director, HP India.
HP said Cloud, mobility and big data initiatives can introduce big security concerns. Concerns around understanding security requirements for cloud services are top of mind for nearly half of business and technology executives in India.
According to a HP survey, more than half of those surveyed also indicated they are concerned about how to secure and consume big data.
More than 40 percent are concerned about mobile data loss or theft. In addition, almost half of respondents admitted that their organizations spend more time and money on reactive measures than on proactive risk management.
“Cybersecurity threats are growing exponentially, and without a proactive information risk management strategy, enterprise growth, innovation and efficiencies are hindered,” said Damanjit S. Uberoi, chief solutions architect & evangelist, South Asia, HP Enterprise Security Products.
HP also announced a mobile application for IT security professionals that utilizes data from HP Digital Vaccine Labs (DVLabs) to monitor current and trending cyberthreats.
HP also announced an industry first by surpassing 2.5 billion lines of code under subscription as part of its HP Fortify on Demand (FoD) application security Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution. HP Fortify leads the industry with the capability to harden the attack surface of applications with both static and dynamic application testing for 21 languages, more than any other vendor. In addition, for mobile computing security, HP Fortify offers SaaS testing services for both the iOS and Android operating systems.
