HPE Bolsters Security Offerings for Enterprise IT and Mobile

By CIOReview | Monday, March 7, 2016

SAN FRANCISCO, CA: HP Enterprise has rolled out a series of new security offerings to help organizations protect their business assets by equipping them with comprehensive detection and response capabilities. The offerings include a Cyber Reference Architecture (CRA), mobile data security, along with an expanded ecosystem of partners.

The CRA contains 12 domains, 63 sub-domains and over 350 distinct security capabilities, and presents an ideal solution for organizations against tackling the most complex security threats that includes cloud, mobility, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet-of-Things (IoT). The solution equips organizations with the ability to create security systems that can provide alerts, investigation and response, threat intelligence, and analytics.

"With the growth in emerging technologies and the sophistication of today's threat landscape, enterprises today are challenged with identifying and managing risk while keeping pace with innovation," said Art Wong, Senior Vice President, HPE Security Services, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. "The HPE Cyber Reference Architecture provides organizations with a framework for resiliency, leveraging 350 distinct security architecture blueprints addressing the core components and initiatives needed to build security in and stop attacks in their tracks."

HPE also announced the results of its Mobile Application Security Report that collected data from over 36,000 iOS and Android apps using the Fortify on Demand threat assessment tool. The study revealed that Analytics frameworks in 60percent of all mobile apps can store information that is vulnerable to hacking. Moreover, the threat levels will only increase as more companies permit Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). To solve this challenge, HPE has released the HPE SecureData Mobile, an end-to-end encryption solution that secures sensitive information while allowing organizations to protect data at rest, in motion, and in use.

Furthermore, HPE has expanded its ArcSight Technology Alliances Partner (TAP) program’s "stop it now" model with added collaboration from leaders in the security industry that include Aruba ClearPass, vArmour, Fortinet, IT-ISAC, and PwC. "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," said Sue Barsamian, SVP and General Manager, HPE Security Products, HPE.
