HP extends enterprise services to spot serious security breaches within minutes

An HP logo HP has unveiled a host of new enhanced enterprise security services and tools, which it claims will let enterprise-size businesses spot security breaches in 12 minutes.

HP announced Supplier Security Compliance Solution and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection Services, claiming they will let customers resolve 92 percent of major incidents within two hours of detection. The features fit into HP's existing Managed Security Services (MSS) and Enterprise Services.

MSS chief technologist at HP, Rhod Davies, told V3 the new Supplier Security Compliance Solution builds on the company's experience to help companies become compliant with governments' data handling and security laws.

"This grew out of the deployment of one of HP's biggest UK customers. We've been doing that supplier management for them and it we learned a lot of lessons and have expanded to offer it to our other customers," he said.

He added the compliance tool will also help customers boost security across their supply chain. "Quite a few recent attacks have been not against the organisation itself but against their supplier, because it's easier to get around and in through them. So one of our announcements is a series of consulting services that will help. It starts off by letting you see what the threats are and what controls you should have in place, and ultimately offers you the option to have HP run that supply chain compliance," said Davies.

HP's DDoS Protection Services is a key tool built off DDoS protections technology provider Akamai's platform. "The DDoS is a general application that plugs into our existing managed services. The underlying platform is Akamai's anti-denial of service technology, but we've put a management wrapper around it to make it integrate with the other management services we deliver," he said.

As well as the new services, HP also unveiled its next-generation portfolio of anti-hacker technologies. Key additions include the HP Threat Central, SureStart tools and TippingPoint Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) services.

Davies explained that HP Threat Central is a community-sourced security intelligence platform designed to increase the amount of threat data being shared by businesses. He added it is an essential step in the firm's ongoing battle to combat the recent wave of advanced attacks being created by cyber criminals.

"We've seen attackers that have their own ecosystem, where they can more or less plug together modules and are specialising in specific forms of attack, and collaborating and sharing information. The attack side has become that much more sophisticated while on the defence side. I think it's fair to say a lot of security professionals live in their own little bunkers and don't exchange information," he said.

"This is partly because they're too busy and partly because they're worried about the information they're trying to protect potentially being shared with the competition. We need to step up the level of collaboration."

The centre is aided by HP's upgraded HP ArcSight and HP Fortify security technologies. The technologies are designed to...Read the rest of this post ---->V3
