HP TippingPoint Wins Security Contract with HHS

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has selected the HP TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention System® (IPS) platform to protect its network from viruses, malware and other security attacks. The HP TippingPoint IPS can inspect network traffic against signatures -- or characteristics -- for known attacks. The appliance also offers vulnerability-specific filters that examine where a particular application is susceptible to compromise, and then blocks all attacks from exploiting those weaknesses. Financial terms were not disclosed.
