Today at Interop 2013, HP TippingPoint announced Security Management System (SMS) 3.6 along with the new large enterprise SMS XL 2000 hardware platform. The SMS provides single pane of glass management for all HP TippingPoint network security devices. As organizations struggle with managing their network security appliances, the SMS provides a simple to use interface to manage your physical devices, security profiles and security events. The reporting engine has been re-written and integrated with Vertica to provide an average event capacity of 5 Billion aggregated events on the SMS XL 2000 and a 10x performance increase in reporting speed. Also included is support for the newly announced TippingPoint Next Generation IPS 7500NX, 6200NX and 2600NX devices along with the bypass I/O modules announced last week at InfoSecurity Europe.


Security Effectiveness is only as good as your research team


All of the HP TippingPoint appliances are backed by the industry-leading security research from HP TippingPoint DVLabs and the Zero Day Initiative. For the last three years TippingPoint has been recognized with the Frost and Sullivan Market Share Leadership award for Vulnerability Research. DVLabs and ZDI are credited with more vulnerability disclosures than the next five network security vendors combined, resulting in the knowledge of over 100 non-publicly disclosed vulnerabilities at any given time. This knowledge helps fuel the security intelligence in the NGIPS, providing our customers with proactive protections against threats that there is no other defense against.
