Did you know: DVLabs—Your secret security weapon

Security for your network—you need it. You can’t get by without it. Did you know that you’ve got a secret security weapon at your disposal? I’ve got a little secret that I’m willing to let you in on: HP DVLabs is one of the most effective ways to protect your network. Don’t believe me? Let me tell you a little bit more about it.

 

protect your network.jpgYou know that HP is a leader when it comes to IT security research and intelligence, and DVLabs resides at the very heart of our security program. DVLabs is the magical place where vulnerability researchers and developers brainstorm and apply cutting-edge reverse engineering and analysis techniques to create all-encompassing threat protection for customer networks—for YOUR networks.

 

We have security research experts that monitor global internet activity, analyze emerging exploits, and constantly discover new zero-day vulnerabilities. They create IPS filters that are automatically delivered to HP TippingPoint Next Generation Firewall and IPS customers. That’s right—AUTOMATICALLY. Talk about real-time protection!   

 

In fact, one customer just told us they saw 0 false positives over 15 months and had a 75% decrease in reported malware incidents after implementing the RepDV service from DVLabs on their IPS device.

DVLabs provides customers with 3 key solutions:

  • HP Reputation Digital Vaccine (RepDV)—This is an extensive database of malicious IP and DNS entries that is used to identify and deny access to malicious actors. To ensure the reputation of IP addresses are graded/scored correctly, it:
    • Updates every 2 hours
    • Scores threats from 0-100 and lets you set your threshold for blocking (most set at 60-70). Anything over that number would be blocked.
  • HP Application Digital Vaccine (AppDV)—Offers IT managers the ability to manage and control applications and bandwidth use across the enterprise.
  • HP Digital Vaccine Toolkit (DVToolkit)—An application for creating custom HP TippingPoint Next Generation Firewall and IPS security filters to proactively protect your assets. The DVToolkit:
    • Has a list of 8700 filters to ensure vulnerabilities are not exploited.
    • Pulls known vulnerabilities and patches together to ensure your network is protected while vendors create patches. (Similar to boarding up windows and doors during a hurricane, while your hurricane shutters are on backorder.)

 

So…now that the secret’s out, you know that you can have unrivaled quality and quantity of threat research. Stay tuned for the next installment of, “Did you know…?”
