Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has come up with two major announcements to deal with the complex security threats arising from latest trends such as cloud, mobility, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet-of-Things (IoT).
HPE rekeased new HPE Security to help organizations design security and risk management processes into IT operations to address today’s sophisticated threat landscape while providing a safer environment to meet tomorrow’s business demands.
According to IDC, the assessment of IoT devices along with the need to mitigate risks associated with IoT is prompting organizations to gain visibility into network traffic generated by these connected devices. IDC expects this to be a significant driver of growth in the security information and event management segment from $1.7 billion in 2014 to $2.6 billion in 2019, as organizations look to build security and analytics capabilities into the deployments of emerging technologies.
As part of the new enhancements, HPE announced the HPE Cyber Reference Architecture (CRA), an information security framework designed to help build resilient organizations capable of addressing today’s most complex security threats.
The new framework includes enhancements to the HPE Threat Defense Services portfolio with additional security monitoring and managed security services powered by HPE Security ArcSight, HPE said.
To proactively detect and respond to active threats, risk management approaches need to shift to focus on building security into the fabric of their organization, the company said.
The HPE Cyber Reference Architecture offers business leaders and security professionals concrete guidance to help protect an organization’s critical business assets and interactions between users, applications and data regardless of location or device through a combination of policy, governance, process and technology.
“The traditional bolt-on method of enterprise security, emphasizing network defense and perimeter control, is proving to be insufficient against today’s radically changing threat landscape,” said Sue Barsamian, senior vice president and general manager, HPE Security Products, Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
“Organizations need a risk and resiliency roadmap that goes beyond this traditional focus and builds security into every layer of the IT stack — from the infrastructure to the apps to the data — along with comprehensive detection and response capabilities that will drive the next generation of intelligence-driven security operations,” Barsamian said.
