HP and Trend Micro are collaborating to provide enterprises with defence against advanced targeted security threats.
The two have developed an integrated defence platform, using Trend and HP solutions, to detect and automatically block threats, and communicate threat intelligence to administrators.
The solution combines Trend Micro's Deep Discovery to proactively detect targeted attacks and advanced threats, identify threat characteristics and communicate actionable intelligence to HP TippingPoint for immediate blocking. Deep Discovery also reports incidents to HP ArcSight security information and event management (SIEM) solution to allow deeper investigation and data sharing with HP's Threat Central platform.
"We have heard loud and clear from CIOs that targeted attacks and advanced threats are a primary concern, and defending against them must be part of a broader strategy of detection and prevention that integrates existing network defences," said Partha Panda, vice president of global channels and alliances, Trend Micro. "Working with one of the most respected names in technology and security is truly invigorating and validates Trend Micro's efforts to develop comprehensive solutions that contain targeted attacks before they can damage networks and compromise sensitive data while allowing customers to take full advantage of their existing investments on security products and technologies."
"Cyber criminals are going well beyond traditional malware and conventional attack vectors, and enterprises need protection that keeps pace and adapts faster than the adversaries," said Rob Greer, vice president and general manager, TippingPoint, Enterprise Security Products, HP. "Collaborating with pioneering security software companies like Trend Micro supports our mission to deliver the most comprehensive solutions on the market to block and remediate advanced threats."
Deep Discovery's custom sandboxing technology offers HP ArcSight and HP TippingPoint customers tailored detection against specific environments to pinpoint evasive threats in real-time. Enterprises can also leverage the global threat intelligence of Trend Micro's Smart Protection Network and HP's Threat Central platform in order to securely share threat intelligence data.
Unlike competitors' piecemeal technology, this offering is the first of its kind, the vendors claim, uniting network intrusion prevention, next generation firewall, sandboxing and SIEM elements to provide complete defence against targeted attacks and advanced threats. For easy management, network intrusion prevention can be activated from a single console to keep desktops, laptops and mobile devices safe - which is ideal as BYOD and consumerization continue to proliferate.
