HP Helps Enterprises Mitigate Risk of Cyberthreats

New faster-throughput HP TippingPoint appliances reduce data center footprint, energy consumption costs

LONDON — HP today announced the expansion of the HP TippingPoint NX Series Next Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) portfolio with new appliances that expedite the detection, identification and mitigation of network security threats.

Traditional network security approaches are inefficient at mitigating risk and blocking disruptive attacks. Enterprises need complete security coverage from the data center to the small branch office, while maintaining optimum network performance.

The new HP S7500NX, HP S6200NX and HP S2600NX NGIPS appliances round out the HP NX family to cover data transfer speeds of 20Gbps, 10Gbps and 3Gbps, respectively. The 20Gbps appliance provides one of the industry’s highest throughput levels(1) in a two-rack-unit form factor that can reduce an organization’s overall data center footprint and energy consumption costs.(2)

The new solutions enable network security operations teams to locate threats quickly and accurately, without slowing network traffic. They also provide clients with the flexibility to customize the interfaces and bypass options, ensuring business continuity in the event of a hardware failure.

“The boom in cloud and mobile applications has put the pressure on network security operations to provide the highest-speed networks while maintaining security efficacy,” said Rob Greer, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Security Products, TippingPoint, HP. “HP TippingPoint continues to deliver innovative network security solutions that address rapidly evolving security threats without adding complexity, cost or resource consumption to the data center.”

All HP TippingPoint appliances leverage industry-leading research from HP TippingPoint DVLabs and the Zero Day Initiative, ensuring that the latest security vulnerabilities are identified, mitigated or blocked.   

Pricing and availability

The HP S7500NX NGIPS, HP S6200NX NGIPS and S2600NX NGIPS appliances will be available worldwide soon.
