HP has updated its ArcSight security suite of tools, promising the product's unified data analytics powers will boost businesses' monitoring powers 10-fold.
The new HP ArcSight Threat Detector 2.0, Threat Response Manager 5.5 and IdentityView 2.5 services are designed to utilise the power of the firm's big data products to let companies spot atypical, or nefarious network activity faster.
The products add several enhanced features to HP's ArcSight portfolio. Specifically HP ArcSight Threat Detector 2.0 will offer new out-of-the-box threat profiles and threat profile intelligence services. Meanwhile the Threat Response Manager 5.5 will come with new cloud-ready, closed-loop capabilities designed to speed up firm's threat detection and response time. IdentityView 2.5 will feature enhanced user identity tracking services.
HP claims the upgraded services will improve enterprise's ability to handle and process information at high velocity, volume and variety, analyse structured and unstructured data, monitor events in cloud, mobile and virtual environments and automatically take action once a threat has been detected.
HP vice president and general manager for ArcSight, Enterprise Security Products, Haiyan Song, said the services will help firms mitigate the increased number of targeted threats facing them.
"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 Song.
"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 minimise business impact and prevent disruption to critical client services."
HP is one of many companies to tout big data analytics security applications. Prior to HP, German software giant SAP highlighted the super-fast analytics and monitoring powers of its HANA platform as a key selling point for the service.
