HP introduces new enterprise security software

Security suites aim to help businesses deal with mobile and cloud computing

Hewett-Packard is expanding its Enterprise Security Solutions portfolio to help businesses deal with persistent security threats from cloud computing and social media.

The new security portfolio is aimed at helping businesses deal with threats arising from mobile computing, the consumerization of IT, the adoption of cloud services and social media. Enterprises need to manage risk with a balanced approach to systematically assess these security threats, according to HP.

To achieve this, HP is combining its security products and acquisitions into suites "designed to help enterprises establish and execute a comprehensive security strategy that addresses threats and potential liabilities resulting from the rise of mobility, cloud computing and social media," the company said in a press release Monday.

ArcSight, Fortify Software and TippingPoint have been combined in a risk management platform. With that platform in place, HP hopes to eliminate the fragmented security practices in the enterprise.

The company also unveiled several security tools. ArcSight Express 3.0 is aimed at detecting and preventing cyberthreats. HP Reputation Security Monitor lists malicious IP (Internet Protocol) and DNS (Domain Name System) addresses. Fortify Software Security Center suite tests for vulnerabilities. TippingPoint Web Application Digital Vaccine is used for sniffing out malicious traffic and for real-time identification of vulnerabilities in Web applications.

According to Tom Reilly, vice president and general manager of HP enterprise security products, businesses are building infrastructures that are "a patchwork of unrelated security products and processes." In a video explaining the new security tools, Reilly said that "the result is a proliferation of point solutions with no coordination across silos, business units or functionaries."

By combining its security tools HP hopes to eliminate this fragmentation. To do this HP also introduced new Information Security Management services, Enterprise Cloud Service threat management software and Application Security Testing-as-a-Service to identify and close vulnerabilities in the application layer.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

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!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
