Despite most organization's best efforts, security incidents still occur. HP understands that securing today's heterogeneous enterprise requires a multi-vendor, multi-layered approach. HP and its partners can help you with vulnerability assessment, patch management, pre-emptive notification, security incident detection, and incident management..

As the old saying goes, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".  HP provides security assessment services checking the health and improving the readiness of customer environments. HP and OpenView integrated partners provide vulnerability assessment, patch management, and overall system configuration management to detect weaknesses before they can be exploited and provide proactive remediation. Key partners include Aelita, BindView, Novadigm, St. Bernard Software, and Symantec.

Detection of a security incident can come from multiple sources including network intrusion detection solutions (NIDS) and system log file monitoring and analysis. Pre-emptive notifications of potential security incidents -- including unusual usage patterns, unapproved configuration changes -- and early warning services can help mitigate incidents early in their lifecycle. HP OpenView Internet Usage Manager (IUM) can monitor, correlate, and detect unusual usage patterns. HP and OpenView partners provide a variety of detection and security event correlation capabilities alerting IT and security staff to incidents early in their attack cycle. Partners include Checkpoint, Cisco, ISS, Tripwire, Symantec, ArcSight, e-Security, and Open Service.

If an incident occurs, a number of systems & processes will need to come into play. This includes the help desk for handling user inquiries, configuration and change management procedures, and overall incident management processes. HP OpenView Service Desk provides the industry's best solution for overall IT Service Management. Service Desk's integrated modules facilitate comprehensive, process driven incident management that also support industry defined best practices.

By integrating with industry's leading security device and solution providers, HP offers enterprises flexibility and security to manage your IT infrastructure in the most effective way for your business.
