HP TippingPoint--Putting security on the right track!

With security attacks on the rise, effective network protection is critical to the national railway of Switzerland, Swiss Federal Railways. With an increase in cyber threats, the highly sensitive nature of the railway’s network needed greater visibility and a more proactive defense—enter HP TippingPoint technology.



Matterhorn_Switzerland_11.jpgBecause Swiss Federal Railways controls both the signaling system and the energy framework for the railway, they are an integral part of Switzerland’s national infrastructure—deeming effective network protection as a critical requirement. However, they needed an intrusion prevention system that was not only effective and reliable, but one that was simple and could enhance their existing security layers.



During a routine upgrade process, the railway found more than 60 requirements it needed to fulfill. Then, add in the complexities caused by cloud computing and mobile technologies, the criteria needed to adequately secure the network changed significantly.  With a list of critical components for their next-generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS) to meet, Swiss Federal Railways chose to implement the HP TippingPoint 7500NX platform, in conjunction with HP TippingPoint SMS XL Appliance. They are now set with excellent protection against today’s ever-evolving threat landscape! See the press release here!

HP is pleased to be recognized for the ninth consecutive year by the 2013 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Intrusion Prevention Systems.
