HP has unveiled what it calls “high-performance security solutions” which have been designed specifically to prevent network breaches in a converged infrastructure.
The HP TippingPoint Secure Virtualisation Framework is a suite of products designed to help prevent network threats from impacting virtualised environments.
The new offering is said to bring a better level of security to HP FlexFabric, the company’s data centre networking fabric for a converged infrastructure.
HP says that as organisations move to more virtualised and converged infrastructures, the importance of security becomes increased.
“Virtualised environments and their applications are subject to the same threats that impact traditional data centres,” it said in a release.
“While many virtual machines are hosted on a single server, one security breach can have a disastrous impact. As a result, when organisations accelerate the migration of production workloads and mission-critical assets to a virtualised environment, security requirements must become a strategic element of these plans.”
