Blue Coat and HP pool resources to combat advanced targeted attacks

blue coat logoBANGALORE: Blue Coat Systems Inc. from its barrio today went on to announce that it is collaborating with HP to afford a transformative lifecycle defense to combat the onslaught of advanced persistent threats. The novel solution delivers operational control across detection, isolation and remediation by aligning perimeter protection with actionable security intelligence and analytics.

HP logoBlue Coat and HP Enterprise Security Products will torque a transformative approach that from its quarter integrates defenses for each stage of the threat lifecycle and automates intelligence sharing across the security infrastructure. The solution will go on to provide a holistic response that is grounded by these foundational elements:

· Full visibility into all traffic on the network to identify threats and data exfiltration using encryption to evade security defenses

· Perimeter defenses that block all known threats and malware sources

· Actionable intelligence and analytics that shorten the time between breach, incident discovery and response

· Incident response that is integrated with post breach threat intelligence to fortify perimeter defenses in real time

The incorporation of the Blue Coat Advanced Threat Protection Solution with HP Threat Central and Automated Threat Assessments will empower security analysts to gain operational control by closing the gap between breach, incident discovery and remediation.

Braced with full visibility into all traffic on the network, the solution will deliver a more comprehensive view into incidents. Shared threat intelligence across the detection, containment and remediation defenses through the Blue Coat Global Intelligence Network and HP Threat Central will enable faster resolution of incidents. Providing greater context into incidents and operationalizing threat intelligence will buttress defenses across the security environment.

“To combat advanced persistent threats, enterprises need complete visibility and operational control that bridges the gap between prevention, incident containment and resolution,” alleged Joe Levy, CTO at Blue Coat Systems.

Rhetoricising that – “Through this partnership with HP, we are helping enterprises finally address advanced persistent threats at each stage of the threat lifecycle by delivering a solution that integrates the industry’s leading security products to share threat intelligence and provide operational control.”

“The number of successful breaches continues to surge despite higher levels of investment in security defenses, which calls for a new approach that enables seamless sharing of threat intelligence information across the industry,” held Rob Greer, vice president and general manager, TippingPoint, Enterprise Security Products, HP.

Purporting that – “Through collaboration with Blue Coat, HP is addressing this challenge head on, bringing together powerful, complementary security solutions that can provide an integrated defense that continues to get smarter as new threats are discovered.”
