Swiss National Railway Implements HP TippingPoint IPS

Swiss Federal Railways has deployed HP TippingPoint technology to secure the national railway’s network infrastructure.  The deployment uses the HP TippingPoint 7500NX platform and HP TippingPoint SMS XL Appliance for next-generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS).

 “Even with strong security measures already in place, the highly sensitive nature of the railway’s network, along with the escalation of cyberthreats, presented a need for greater visibility and proactive defense,” said Erwin Jud, senior security engineer, Swiss Federal Railways. “The HP TippingPoint IPS combines advanced threat intelligence and thorough visibility, enabling us to better protect our infrastructure with minimal administrative effort.”

HP said its TippingPoint NX platform delivers a real-time NGIPS to proactively defend against cyberthreats that target the network, applications and critical data.
