HP launches data security tools, services

HP announces the HP Secure Advantage family of products

HP on Tuesday announced a new appliance, software and services to protect data on HP servers and storage for regulatory compliance.

At the HP Technology Forum in Las Vegas, HP announced the HP Secure Advantage family of products for securing data and verifying its authenticity. The Secure Advantage platform consists of an audit trail for policy monitoring and enforcement, an appliance called the HP Compliance Log Warehouse, a standards-base information security model, tape-based encryption, a toolbar that prevents phishing, and identity- and access-management software.

According to IDC, the security products and services market is expected to reach US$66.6 billion by 2010.

The audit trail for policy monitoring and enforcement helps customers safeguard their intellectual property and provide validation with proof of compliance.

The HP Compliance Log Warehouse appliance is based on an industry-standard HP Integrity server. It collects and analyzes log data and reports on variances in the data relative to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and other regulations. The Compliance Log Warehouse includes an alerting module based on SenSage technology, which performs analysis of event data for audits or investigations.

The new standards-based Information Security Service Management (ISSM) reference model from HP Services counsels an organization on managing and mitigating risk through the deployment of security controls. HP ISSM is part of the new HP Service Management Framework, which provides a common language based on industry best practices and standards, such as Version 3 of the Information Technology Infrastructure Library and ISO/IEC 20000. The security portfolio's data protection capabilities extend by providing AES 256-bit encryption for the new HP StorageWorks LTO-4 Ultrium1840 tape drives.

Further, an Anti-phishing Toolbar, a two-factor authentication product, helps reduce the costs of online fraud or phishing. It calculates a unique password from information provided by the user, the user's browser and the site being visited. The password it generates lets the toolbar send passwords to sites only when the site's certificate is present.

Finally, the HP Identity Center is an identity- and access-management package that automates the management of people, processes, security and compliance.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
