Have you reached your tipping point when it comes to enterprise security?

Let's face it, with today’s technology, security breaches are simply part of daily life. And while your enterprise organization is demanding the need for security, today’s IT specialists continue to struggle with the challenge of protecting the integrity and confidentiality of your enterprise’s data. Enterprise security teams are now faced with highly sophisticated network attacks that are carefully crafted by skilled hacker groups. These attacks are generally long-term, multi-stage attack campaigns known as ‘advanced persistent threats’ (ADP). Couple that with the adoption of emerging tech like virtualization and cloud computing, and it’s a huge undertaking. You need a higher-level prevention system…but where to start?

The network IPS appliance is the most popular method used to detect breaching behavior, malware, and intruders, but it’s no longer as effective. Though these systems can still provide a level of protection, they’re no match for those threats that can evade detection by IPS signatures. Enter the next generation of intrusion prevention system (NGIPS). NGIPS provides:

  • IPS functionality
  • Application awareness
  • Application control
  • User identity awareness
  • Advanced detection engines
  • IP reputation
  • Basic DLP
  • DDoS prevention
  • Botnet detection
  • Evasion detection

Here’s where HP can help. With the cutting-edge research of our HP DVLabs, HP TippingPoint offers a compelling portfolio of NGIPS products. DVLabs discovers, analyzes and discloses vulnerabilities in enterprise software and network services. The data is then used to develop and deliver protection updates in HP TippingPoint NGIPS solutions. This way of working is pretty unique for a security appliance vendor—most spend the majority of their efforts on simply adding signatures based on publically known vulnerabilities versus doing actual research into discovering new ones. This pie chart shows HP’s proficiency in the vulnerability research market:
