Thinking like a 'bad guy' at RSA 2014 with HP Threat Central

Guest post by Ted Ross

In 2013, the security world saw cybercrime continue to increase, with 92 percent of Forbes Global 2000 companies reporting data breaches in early studies. Now, as we are in the beginning of 2014, HP thinks it’s time to shake up the adversary marketplace. It’s time to manage risk and extend our security capabilities. It’s time to better protect ourselves against the growing threat landscape. It’s time to rethink our security strategy.


threat central.jpgThe fact is, the threat landscape of 2014 isn’t going to get smaller—it’s only going to grow. Adversaries aren’t backing down, and have continued to form a more sophisticated and collaborative marketplace. Utilizing advanced data-theft tools and sharing of information across cybercrime channels is now the norm. In the technologically advanced world of bring your own device (BYOD), IT is no longer in control of the endpoint and the adversary has even more points of attack.


With this knowledge, HP Security Research delivers industry-leading protection through HP Threat Central. This platform allows organizations to share threat intelligence securely, confidentially and in real-time—enabling you to have tailored automated actions against modern threats. HP Threat Central arms your enterprise so that you’re able to disrupt the adversary marketplace, improve your risk postures, and further extend your own capabilities through:

  • Automated sharing of threat indicators

  • Automated action to the latest threats specific to your business

  • Improved response times

  • Improved visibility to the overall threat landscape


With real-time, scalable, comprehensive and trustworthy threat-information sharing, HP Threat Central gives a more complete picture of the attack—resulting in a faster and more effective response. 


We’re excited to share this groundbreaking information with you at the RSA Conference—happening February 24-28th, in San Francisco, California. We invite you to learn more about the HP Threat Central platform at www.hp.com/go/hpsr and to find us at RSA 2014. It’s time to talk security!
