HP TippingPoint Unveils Faster Throughput Next Generation IPS

Organizations today are faced with the daunting task of securing their assets against a rapidly evolving threat landscape. Traditional security approaches are inefficient at mitigating risk and blocking disruptive attacks. Today HP announced the expansion of the HP TippingPoint NX Series Next Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) portfolio. The new HP S75000NX, S6200NX and S2600NX NGIPS appliances round out the family NX family to provide 20 Gbps, 10Gbps and 3Gbps network inspection respectively. The S7500NX provides one of the industry’s highest throughput capabilities in a 2U form factor, while delivering industry leading port density. The NX lines also supports enriched event data and sFlow emission providing increased attack and network visibility. Also announced were five new hardware bypass I/O modules providing non-stop networking in the event of a hardware failure.

 

As organizations continue to adopt 10GbE in the data center it is increasingly difficult to find security appliances that can handle the throughput and port requirements. The latest S7500NX allows for up to 100Gbps network throughput while providing 20Gbps of inspection across up to 16 10GbE segments.

 

"The boom in cloud and mobile applications has put the pressure on network security operations to provide the highest-speed networks while maintaining security efficacy," said Rob Greer, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Security Products, TippingPoint, HP. "HP TippingPoint continues to deliver innovative network security solutions that address rapidly evolving security threats without adding complexity, cost or resource consumption to the data center."

 

Security Effectiveness is only as good as your research team

 

All of the HP TippingPoint appliances are backed by the industry-leading security research from HP TippingPoint DVLabs and the Zero Day Initiative. For the last three years TippingPoint has been recognized with the Frost and Sullivan Market Share Leadership award for Vulnerability Research. DVLabs and ZDI are credited with more vulnerability disclosures than the next five network security vendors combined, resulting in the knowledge of over 100 non-publicly disclosed vulnerabilities at any given time. This knowledge helps fuel the security intelligence in the NGIPS, providing our customers with proactive protections against threats that there is no other defense against.
