HP today announced updates to its HP ArcSight portfolio, offering enterprises unified security analytics for big data with expanded identity monitoring to accelerate the detection of persistent threats.


Enterprises must proactively anticipate intrusions and hasten the detection of risks in order to protect valuable assets. To successfully identify and remediate occurrences of prolonged unauthorized network access, also known as advanced persistent threats (APTs), organizations must be prepared to:


  • Handle and process information at high velocity, volume and variety
  • Analyze structured and unstructured data both inside and outside their network
  • Monitor events in cloud, mobile and virtual environments
  • Automatically take action once a threat has been detected

“Typically batch in nature, big data analytics allows an organization to organize and analyze vast amounts of structured and unstructured information to facilitate the detection of rogue employees, partners, or criminal or collusive rings of fraudulent or abusive activity,” said Avivah Litan, analyst, Gartner. “A critical ingredient for success is the ability to quickly and easily integrate all types of structured and unstructured information across multiple internal and external information sources.”(1)


Strengthening its existing portfolio of security solutions for big data, HP has introduced a series of updates including HP ArcSight Threat Detector 2.0 with out-of-the-box threat profiles and threat profile intelligence, and HP ArcSight Threat Response Manager 5.5 with cloud-ready, closed-loop capabilities for accelerated threat detection and response to mitigate APTs. In addition, HP ArcSight IdentityView 2.5 has been enhanced with expanded correlation of user identity, roles, and activities across events and security incidents.


With unified analytics from applications, users, network and systems, HP provides a unique portfolio of solutions integrating information security with big data. Collectively, these solutions process events at scale, provide deep insights out of the box, correlate user context, and provide actionable intelligence to reduce the risk of APTs.


“With a mission to provide superior health care, it is critical that we prevent system disruptions that might impact patient safety or quality of care,” said Keith Duemling, Information Security Officer, Lake Health. “By automating threat detection across our network, HP ArcSight allowed us to move to a much more proactive approach to information security and improve our ability to detect risks that might affect overall system performance by a factor of 10.”


“Adversaries only need to get it right once to invoke serious damage on an organization’s private data, ability to provide critical service or corporate reputation,” said Haiyan Song, vice president and general manager, ArcSight, Enterprise Security Products, HP. “With solutions designed to enhance threat detection through improved security analytics for big data, HP enables customers to quickly identify potential attackers and take action proactively to minimize business impact and prevent  disruption to critical client services.”
