HP TippingPoint Advanced Threat API debuts at RSA 2014 Conference

In today’s technologically advanced world, adversaries have an advantage like never before. They move faster, innovate more broadly, and organize around an underground marketplace. In order to defend ourselves, we need to turn the tables and beat the bad guys at their own game. We, as organizations, must collaborate and form a unified defense against this growing trend.

Offered via the HP TippingPoint Security Management System (SMS), the HP TippingPoint Advanced Threat API offers access to HP Threat Central and advanced threat appliance solutions by delivering inline blocking at wire speed with HP TippingPoint Next Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) and HP TippingPoint Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) devices.

 

We welcome the following partners that, together with HP, are helping to further decrease the spread of advanced malware within enterprise networks:

  • Blue Coat Systems covers business assurance by incorporating the Blue Coat Security Analytics Platform with alerts generated by HP TippingPoint devices for investigation and remediation of incidents.
  • Damballa’s Failsafe integration with HP TippingPoint gives customers the ability to discover, validate and quarantine successful infections immediately to quickly mitigate risk.
  • Lastline Enterprise sensor detects advanced malware on the network, securely communicating with the HP TippingPoint SMS that a zero-day attack has been identified and helps to prevent advanced malware from infecting command/control systems and spreading across the network.
  • Trend Micro’s Deep Discovery provides indicators of compromise from malware, as well as command and control communication with HP TippingPoint, to prevent further attack, and reports incidents and analysis to HP ArcSight to allow deeper investigation.

 

This Advanced Threat API will offer an innovative way to identify and catalog previously unnoticed malicious domain names and IP addresses, and thereby, better anticipate and mitigate hostile attacks on network infrastructure.
