“Cloud”, “mobility” and “big data” are common buzzwords these days and while these key elements help organisations to drive innovation, enhance agility and improve financial management, they also pose new challenges and concerns. One being – security, and in a big way. HP is looking to address these concerns with the announcement of its expanded security solutions portfolio to help enterprises proactively protect data.

According to new research conducted on behalf of HP recently, security is a major concern amongst more than two-thirds of business and technology executives in Asia Pacific and Japan when it comes to cloud services. More than three quarters indicated were concerned about how to secure and consume big data.

While traditionally organisations adopted a more reactive, perimeter-based approach to security, this is no longer sufficient nor an ideal strategy. More than half of respondents admitted that their organisations spend more time and money on reactive measures.

“Cybersecurity threats are growing exponentially, and without a proactive information risk management strategy, enterprise growth, innovation and efficiencies are hindered,” said Wong Loke Yeow, Regional Marketing Director, Enterprise Security Products, Hewlett-Packard Asia Pacific and Japan.

“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 Richard Archdeacon, CTO, Strategy and Technology, Enterprise Security Services, Hewlett-Packard Company.

As cybersecurity threats become more prevalent and increasingly sophisticated, proactive security measures need to be in place to ensure continued growth, innovation and efficiency for enterprises.

HP’s new security solutions portfolio deliver faster response time and more intelligent resource management to identify threats earlier. These new additions include:

  • New features added to HP Assured Identity.
  • Comprehensive Applications Threat Analysis (CATA) on Demand.
  • HP Security Operations Center (SOC) Consulting Services.

HP also unveiled new products and services to provide clients transparency and control over their entire organisation. New offerings include:

  • HP Data Center Protection Services.
  • HP ArcSight Enterprise Security Manager 6.0c.
  • HP TippingPoint NX Platform Next Generation Intrusion Prevention Systems (NGIPS).

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. In addition, for mobile computing security, HP Fortify offers SaaS testing services for both the iOS and Android operating systems.

Cloud, mobility and big data initiatives are helping organizations solve pressing challenges, while driving accelerated innovation, enhanced agility and improved financial management. However, these initiatives also can introduce big security concerns.

Almost two-thirds of those surveyed are concerned about mobile data loss or theft. In addition, more than half of respondents admitted that their organizations spend more time and money on reactive measures than on proactive risk management.

A reactive, perimeter-based approach to security is no longer sufficient. Enterprises need proactive, intelligent security solutions that span traditional and hybrid delivery models, and address the challenges brought on by these new shifts in IT.
