HP unveils cybersecurity solutions for enterprises in India

hpNEW DELHI: Hewlett-Packard announced new cyber security solutions for enterprises in India to enable firms upgrade their security infrastructure against a growing and sophisticated threat landscape.

The company said cyber intrusions have become more advanced due to adversaries forming sophisticated and collaborative marketplace through which they share information and advanced data theft tools.

Quoting studies, HP said 92 per cent of Forbes Global 2,000 companies reported data breaches in the last 12 months. Also, studies estimate that global cybercrime black market has a value of USD 104 billion per year.

Besides, with concepts like bring your own device (BYOD), IT no longer controls the endpoint, thus offering adversary many more control points to attack.

“Enterprises today aren’t facing a single attacker. They are fighting a well-organised, well-funded adversary marketplace,” HP India Country Manager (Enterprise Security Products) Ranndeep Singh Chonker said.

HP’s Threat Central, which the firm claims is industry’s first community-sourced security intelligence platform, facilitates automated, real-time collaboration among firms in the battle against active cyberthreats, he added.

“HP TippingPoint Next-Generation Firewall addresses risks introduced by cloud, mobile and BYOD by delivering easy to use, reliable, high-performance security effectiveness with granular application visibility and control,” HP India Director Infrastructure Technology Outsourcing Portfolio, Enterprise Services Susanta Bhattacharya said.

Similarly, HP ArcSight and HP Fortify offer data-driven security technologies that empower security operations teams to run more effectively with accelerated and real-time application-level threat detection, he added.

HP Managed Security Services (MSS) help internal security teams accelerate threat identification, response and remediation by providing expertise and advanced security intelligence, HP ESP (South Asia) Chief Solutions Architect Damanjit Uberoi said.

With HP MSS, intrusions are detected within 11.8 minutes, and 92 per cent of major incidents are resolved within two hours of identification, he added.
