HP has presented its latest vision for risk management at the 2011 RSA Conference in San Francisco.
Bill Veghte, executive vice president of software and solutions at HP, told attendees that the company is looking to provide a better picture of possible risks, and allow companies to take a more proactive approach to security.
"We need to be able to collect data. We need to be able to analyse, and we need to be able to visualise," he said.
In order to achieve this vision, HP is planning to combine the HP Fortify, Arcsight and Tipping Point products into a single risk management platform.
The need for the such a platform had been brought on by what Veghte sees as a shift in enterprise IT as a result of consumerisation.
Employees are increasingly bringing personal devices such as tablets and smartphones into work, creating new risks for IT departments.
Veghte also noted the progression of IT towards cloud platforms. Applications are moving from the client/server environment into web-based and cloud computing platforms, and data is now accessible over a larger area and to new devices.
"The reality is that the way apps and services and business processes will be delivered is changing in a big way. We have to address the reality that the user is more empowered than ever before," he said.
