Network Security--How to stay ahead of the pack

As a network security professional in the midst of today’s changing threat landscape, you are now required to research, uncover and address new vulnerabilities continuously. You have to stay ahead of the pack—not run with it. So how do you do that?


network with lock.jpgWe know the network infrastructure has been revolutionized with mobile and cloud computing—but this is the same reason the network security industry is falling short! With the influx of mobile and cloud computing, there are, plainly, just too many networking segments to manage. And when you take into account that there’s a 68% increase in mobile apps vulnerability disclosure, and 84% of data breaches are in the app layer, it’s no wonder. To make matters worse, only 10% of internet connections are secured by a NGFW.  How can we win?


Enter: HP TippingPoint—the product strategy that keeps you in the driver’s seat.

Realizing that simplicity matters, HP TippingPoint was created to be simple, effective and reliable. We extended our protection beyond apps and data to the most common point of infiltration—the user. To help you balance network performance and security, the HP TippingPoint Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) gives you application visibility and control.


This easy-to-use firewall appliance delivers reliability, high-performance, security effectiveness, and granular application visibility and control, allowing your organization to improve your security posture and harden your network defenses.
