HP Unveils Enhanced Enterprise Security Solutions

Technology outfit Hewlett-Packard has unveiled a range of new and enhanced security offerings in order to assist enterprises to engage and mitigate any potential security threats originating from cloud, mobile or social media platforms.

The company also announced that it is going to launch a separate unit dedicated only for enterprise security products business, which could also see some new security related acquisitions pretty soon.

The move follows some major shake ups that the company underwent recently. First it officially abandoned the WebOS powered HP TouchPad tablet device, and then rumours started surfacing about the company planning to sell its PC business unit.

In a recent study conducted on behalf of HP, it was found that a majority of the top executives within the organisation believe that security breach in their company have increased significantly during the last several months.

The number and types of threats are increasing and becoming more persistent and targeted at the same time as enterprises are embracing new computer models that are spreading data across public and private cloud," said Jay Huff, EMEA marketing director for HP ArcSight, ComputerWeekly reports.

“That is the premise behind HP's security intelligence risk management platform, which aims to bring intelligence into the equation," he added.
