Dump the Dumps! Here’s a Better Way to Prepare for an HP ExpertOne Exam

We at HP stand behind our ExpertOne certified professionals by ensuring we are doing everything we can to make their certifications matter.  Our ExpertOne community appreciates the time and talent that goes into creation of the ExpertOne exams. Subject matter experts from around the world participate in the exam development and review process.

A question we are often asked is: “How do to I find sample exams and test preparation sites for HP ExpertOne certifications?” We want to clear the air about how HP feels about the Exam Dump and Cheat Sites that disguise themselves as test preparation and training sites.  (Spoiler alert… we are NOT in favor!)

HP TippingPoint Next Generation Firewall + HP ExpertOne ATP or ASE Certification = Powerful Protection for Your Network Infrastructure

Balancing network security and availability is a fact of life for network and data center managers. HP TippingPoint Next-Generation Firewall lets you take control of your organization’s security without compromising network availability.


Based on the proven HP TippingPoint NGIPS engine, this powerful new product line addresses today’s advanced threats by delivering reliability, ease-of-use, security effectiveness, and superior application visibility and control. And because network security is irrelevant if your network doesn’t meet user demand, HP TippingPoint network security devices deliver well beyond 99 percent network uptime nearly continuously.


New training and certification opportunities

Having the most advanced security solution available anywhere is one thing, but getting the most out of it for your network or data center requires specialized skills. That’s why HP offers two new professional certifications, HP ATP - TippingPoint Next Generation Firewall Security Products V1 and HP ASE - TippingPoint Next Generation Firewall Security Products V1. These certifications give you the tools you need to install, configure, manage, and administer this powerful solution. An upgrade certification, HP ASE - TippingPoint Next Generation Firewall Security Products V1- upgrade from HP ASE - TippingPoint Security V1, is also available. 


Find out how you can benefit. Read our recent blog post about how the HP TippingPoint Next-Generation Firewall solution and training and certification can help protect your company’s data and maximize network availability

HP Discover and ExpertOne: New Storage certifications and HP Press releases

HP LoadRunner 11.00 Certifications: HP ExpertOne

Why all the attention? HP LoadRunner is a popular load testing software suite and many employers are looking for people with HP LoadRunner experience – it is a great resume or CV enhancer. Even companies that don’t utilize HP LoadRunner use the skill set as a competency gauge.

If your virtual servers had feelings, would they be hurt?

What does “virtualization” really mean?  According to my Merriam-Webster dictionary mobile app, “virtualization” doesn’t even exist as a word, which I thought was odd.  Granted, the word does exist via more techie reference guides such as Wikipedia or dictionary.com.   But staying true to my mobile appendage’s inventory of words, I went to the heart of the word virtualization, “virtual”, which has the core meaning of “being such in essence or effect though not formally recognized or admitted”.  Could we then define IT “virtualization” as not yet ‘formally recognized or admitted’ – especially for the entire data center of IT resources?
