Tipping Point, ArcSight and Fortify made suite.

Hewlett Packard (HP) has melded its enterprise security solutions into new products and services.

The products and solutions combine technologies acquired last year from Tipping Point, ArcSight and Fortify Software into suites that HP said are "designed to help enterprises establish and execute a comprehensive security strategy".

Former ArcSight chief Tom Reilly will head the security department.

The solutions, dubbed the "HP Security Intelligence and Risk Management platform'", included version 3 of HP ArcSight Express, the HP Reputation Security Monitor – which provided HP ArcSight users with a real-time list of known bad IP and DNS addresses – and the HP Fortify Software Security Center, which was available on-premise or on-demand to identify vulnerabilities in applications.

It also included version 2 of HP TippingPoint Web Application Digital Vaccine (WebAppDV) service that extended protection to online applications with real-time identification of vulnerabilities and delivery of virtual patches until fixes could be developed.

According to HP, WebAppDV 2.0 filters with adaptive web application firewall technology to help discriminate between normal network activity and malicious traffic.

HP also offered simplified migration from open-source-based IPS solutions with the Digital Vaccine Toolkit (DVToolkit) 2.0 for Snort, as well as improved transparency of a security environment with HP TippingPoint reporting and archiving powered by Logger software.

HP said the combination of technologies gave the capability to collect up to 100,000 events per second.

The company also launched an Information Security Management service using ArcSight to drive the Security Information and Event Management service and Fortify technology powers the Application Security Testing-as-a-Service.
