Security


HPE’s first priority in support automation technology is the security and reliability of the connection. HPE does not collect customers’ application information or business data. Diagnostic data is communicated through a restricted and tightly controlled secure access point. All information collected is encrypted and digitally signed using an X.509 certificate prior to transport to HPE. Data is sent to HPE via secure HTTPS and is stored in a secure data facility in one of HPE’s corporate data centers.
