2013 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing Report

gartner136.gif HP has been named a leader in the Gartner 2013 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing (AST), a category that now combines static and dynamic application security testing. HP paved the way for this shift in Gartner’s reporting by bringing together SPI Dynamics and Fortify Software, the respective leaders in dynamic and static analysis. We believe being named a leader in the newly combined category is not only a testament to the breadth and depth of the Fortify application security portfolio, but also to the forward-looking security vision of HP Enterprise Security Products (ESP).

HP updates 'HP ArcSight' portfolio to enhance big data security analytics

big security.pngHP today announced updates to its HP ArcSight portfolio, offering enterprises unified security analytics for big data with expanded identity monitoring to accelerate the detection of persistent threats.


Enterprises must proactively anticipate intrusions and hasten the detection of risks in order to protect valuable assets. To successfully identify and remediate occurrences of prolonged unauthorized network access, also known as advanced persistent threats (APTs), organizations must be prepared to:


  • Handle and process information at high velocity, volume and variety
  • Analyze structured and unstructured data both inside and outside their network
  • Monitor events in cloud, mobile and virtual environments
  • Automatically take action once a threat has been detected
