HP and VMware Promise Security for the Cloud

HP and VMware will collaborate on next-generation Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) solutions for VMware vSphere-based virtual and cloud environments. The new product will build on the existing HP TippingPoint IPS solution for VMware vSphere deployments, taking current integrations to new levels.

Specifically, the companies will integrate HP TippingPoint IPS with VMware vShield and VMware vCloud Director. Integrating the products will help enable pervasive security in the cloud by delivering unified security management, and by automating the processes of scanning, identifying threats and blocking attacks. As a result, security policies will become easier to maintain while delivering greater protection for traditional, virtualized and cloud infrastructure.
