HP Launches New Enterprise-Ready TippingPoint IPS Security Appliances
Today’s real world security challenges call for the highest capability solutions. In the enterprise, its as critical as anything else on your plate. The demands of the modern infrastructure cover the data center, remote office and branch locations, WAN deployment, cloud deployment, the classic perimeter, wireless and more. We always talk about security layers, but in a lot of ways, there is always the need for faster and faster security systems that have higher port density, enterprise-grade features, with excellent visibility and minimal downtime – A pretty nice checklist of must-haves. To answer that call, HP has launched a new line of next generation IPS TippingPoint security appliances. 3 new models were announced today – the HP S2600NX, HP S6200NX and the HP S7500NX NGIPS, boasting throughput rates of 3Gbps, 10Gbps, and 20Gbps all in a 2u chassis respectfully. How is that for density. It also features hot-swappable I/O modules, reduced energy consumption, reduced footprint and bypass I/O modules designed to ensure business continuity. The port density figures are an industry-leading factor that lays the gambit against the entrenched players in the business like Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, and Fortinet.
“The boom in cloud and mobile applications has put the pressure on network security operations to provide the highest-speed networks while maintaining security efficacy,” said Rob Greer, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Security Products, TippingPoint, HP. “HP TippingPoint continues to deliver innovative network security solutions that address rapidly evolving security threats without adding complexity, cost or resource consumption to the data center.”
These products are all about solid enterprise grade rock star performance – as fast as possible and never stops. The TippingPoint solution is also designed optimally for integration into HP’s entire world of security offerings. As we reported yesterday – the latest WebInspect 10.0 web app security solution is designed to integrate with this product, but TippingPoint also integrates with HP’s ArcSight SIEM system and the HP Fortify Software Security Center. Again – simple integration, simple reporting – all of these enterprise grade and supportable by the industry. Since acquiring Fortify back in 2010, HP has been on a tear revamping and rebuilding their security products and services and more importantly delivering a unified platform that is unique in its value proposition to the enterprise. Add to that the HP TippingPoint DVLabs and Zero Day Initiative Research and you have a robust, vigilant security ecosystem offering that is not only extremely competitive in terms of available products on the market out there, but stands alone on a number of fronts. One thing that I know comes to mind is the Security Analytics platform announced about the time of the RSA conference. Pretty outstanding stuff – using analytics, Big Data, and security principles to identify threats beyond real time, but even preemptively in some cases.
The new NX products are set to ship in May 2013. HP is also leveraging its partnership line of business to get these products into the market.
LONDON, April 24, 2013 — HP today announced the expansion of the HP
TippingPoint NX Series Next Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS)
portfolio with new appliances that expedite the detection, identification and
mitigation of network security threats.
Traditional network security approaches are inefficient at mitigating risk and
blocking disruptive attacks. Enterprises need complete security coverage from
the data center to the small branch office, while maintaining optimum network
The new HP S7500NX, HP S6200NX and HP S2600NX NGIPS appliances
round out the HP NX family to cover data transfer speeds of 20Gbps, 10Gbps
and 3Gbps, respectively. The 20Gbps appliance provides one of the industry’s
highest throughput levels(1) in a two-rack-unit form factor that can reduce an
organization’s overall data center footprint and energy consumption costs.(2)
The new solutions enable network security operations teams to locate threats
quickly and accurately, without slowing network traffic. They also provide clients
with the flexibility to customize the interfaces and bypass options, ensuring
business continuity in the event of a hardware failure.
“The boom in cloud and mobile applications has put the pressure on network security
operations to provide the highest-speed networks while maintaining security efficacy,”
said Rob Greer, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Security Products,
TippingPoint, HP. “HP TippingPoint continues to deliver innovative network security
solutions that address rapidly evolving security threats without adding complexity, cost
or resource consumption to the data center.”
All HP TippingPoint appliances leverage industry-leading research from HP
TippingPoint DVLabs and the Zero Day Initiative, ensuring that the latest security
vulnerabilities are identified, mitigated or blocked.
