, posted: 8-Jun-2011 16:43

Press release received during the HP Discover 2011:

HP Enterprise Services today launched new security services delivered through the cloud to help enterprises mitigate risk by reducing security vulnerabilities.

Security vulnerabilities are a constant threat that can compromise critical information and lead to loss of private, protected information. If a security breach occurs, the affected organisation may suffer damage to both its reputation and market value.

The new HP Enterprise Cloud Services help organisations mitigate risk against potential security vulnerabilities while lowering the financial commitment often required for security contracts. New services include:

- HP Enterprise Cloud Service - Vulnerability Scanning reduces the risk of data loss or unauthorised access by eliminating common security mistakes such as missing patches and incorrect software configurations. Offered on a predetermined schedule or an ad hoc basis, the service scans a client's network nodes - including servers and networking devices - for vulnerabilities. Once a vulnerability is identified, a notification is sent to the security administrator so corrective action can take

- HP Enterprise Cloud Service - Vulnerability Intelligence provides information on newly discovered potential threats that have been identified by vendors or researchers since the last vulnerability scan took place. The service provides clients targeted recommendations on corrective actions specific to their IT environment to help avoid an outage or network loss. As a result, IT can prioritise needed changes and focus on rapid

With the flexibility of a cloud delivery model, the new security services help clients redirect capital and operations costs towards driving innovation for future growth. HP Enterprise Cloud Services help clients keep costs under control through flexible billing based
on the amount of resources consumed, instead of the fixed-cost systems that characterise most organisations' in-house operations.

?Today's enterprise technology environment has never been more vulnerable, due to the daily assault of sophisticated and malicious viruses, as well as other network intrusions,? said David Fox, Head of Enterprise Cloud Services, Enterprise Services, HP
South Pacific. ?HP provides security services to help businesses and governments recognise potential threats and take corrective actions before they can be negatively impacted.

Instant-On Enterprises use HP Security Services to protect resources while providing instant access to the right assets without compromising risk. HP Enterprise Cloud Service - Vulnerability Scanning and Enterprise Cloud Service - Vulnerability Intelligence are available immediately to clients worldwide.
