HP, VMware plan further product integration

Summary: The two companies aim to further integrate HP's intrusion prevention system products with VMware's security and management products.

SHARE:

HP and VMware plan to develop and market a range of intrusion prevention security products, in a collaboration that builds on existing work.

The hardware maker and virtualisation company said on Tuesday that they aim to tailor HP's TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) range of products to fit VMware's virtualisation security vShield and management vCloud Director packages.

The companies said the integration will allow security management to extend across physical and virtual IT stacks, and allow IT professionals to automate "the processes of scanning, identifying threats and blocking attacks" across these areas, HP said in a statement.
