HP Inc. today announced security solutions to provide threat protection for businesses and their remote workforce. The new offerings include HP Pro Security Edition, HP Proactive Security,5 and HP Sure Click Enterprise.
HP Pro Security for SMBs
HP is expanding its built-in hardware-enforced PC security suite to focus on low-touch and enterprise-level security for SMBs. HP Pro Security Edition is an advanced application isolation and deep learning endpoint protection on Windows 10 PCs. The security suite includes HP Sure Sense Pro, a deep learning AI-based protection solution, and HP Sure Click Pro, which offers isolation protection for browser, files, and applications.
The power of the versions of HP Sure Click and HP Sure Sense complement each other, powered by a deep-learning cloud that is constantly connected and updating the software, isolating threats and monitoring application health. This provides closed-loop protection for multiple threats coming from different vectors, applied through various kinds of malware. HP says that this threat protection solution addresses all known and unknown cyberattacks.
HP Pro Security Edition is expected to be available on select HP Elite PCs purchase in the summer 2020.
Managed Security Service for Medium-Sized Businesses
HP Proactive Security is an endpoint security service. The managed service helps small- and medium-sized businesses defend against cyberattacks without changing user behavior or increasing IT workload. The service provides protection that is monitored and managed by HP cybersecurity experts. Company data and devices are secured with multiple layers of proactive protection, applying deep learning and isolation technologies to protect endpoints and reduce risk.
This managed service solution provides a holistic view of device protection status and detailed findings on attempted and blocked attacks from HP TechPulse accessible from a simple dashboard, giving companies peace of mind and remote employees the freedom to work securely from anywhere.
HP Proactive Security is available to select customers in pilots now and is expected to be available to customers and partners worldwide in April 2020.
Security for Enterprises
Designed for enterprise and government entities, HP Sure Click Enterprise is a secure endpoint application isolation and containment solution, protecting enterprise endpoints from even the most sophisticated of attackers while providing detailed, real-time threat intelligence to security teams. The solution allows HP's customers to deliver run-time protection with task-level isolation and non-persistent virtual machines, protecting all on- and off-network users without breach, persistence, lateral movement, or data exfiltration.
HP Sure Click Enterprise supports all Windows 8 and 10 devices. It also provides additional capabilities, including protecting user's credentials from phishing attacks, and cloud-powered automated threat analytics. The solution supports large-scale deployments with policy and threat management, delivered either through an on-premise server, or through an HP cloud-hosted service with ISO 27001/ SOC2 type II accreditation.
HP Sure Click Enterprise is expected to be available in May 2020.
