HP urges customers to rethink security strategy

19 Sep 13

Urging customers to rethink security strategy, HP has announced new products and services allowing enterprises to disrupt the adversary marketplace, manage risk and extend their security capabilities.

Designed to better protect against a growing threat landscape, the company says enterprises can now approach their security challenges with a single view of information security.

Leveraging HP’s security research and security professionals, these new offerings are designed to fight threats across the board.

“Enterprises today aren’t facing a single attacker; they are fighting a well-organised, well-funded adversary marketplace,” says Christopher Poulos, VP and GM, Enterprise Security Products, HP Asia Pacific and Japan.

“To succeed in thwarting attacks, you need a trusted partner that can provide end-to-end security with enhanced threat intelligence to disrupt the adversary. Only HP can deliver this."

HP claims cybercrime continues to increase, with 92% of Forbes Global 2000 companies reporting data breaches in the last 12 months.

This growth is due to adversaries forming a more sophisticated and collaborative marketplace through which they share information and advanced data theft tools, with studies estimating the global cybercrime black market to be worth US$104bn per year.

“An organisation extends well beyond its four walls—it’s made up of a vast ecosystem of suppliers, devices that can go anywhere and, not to mention, a web that is literally worldwide,” says Lawrence Ong, GM, Enterprise Security Services, HP Asia Pacific and Japan.

“HP helps clients reduce risk and manage the complexities of protecting the flow of information—both internally and externally—enabling them to focus on driving innovation.”
