HP unveils new family of next-generation firewall appliances

HP unveiled its new family of HP TippingPoint Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) appliances to further protect customers from threats introduced by mobile and cloud computing.

Bringing to market five new models, HP is extending its network security portfolio to help organizations disrupt the adversary before the network is infiltrated.

As computing becomes borderless, adversaries are increasingly bypassing network security with ease and taking advantage of vulnerabilities brought on by the growing number of applications and entry points. Attacks have also become more frequent and sophisticated, with the average enterprise reporting one network compromise per day and an average of four attempts per minute registered by existing perimeter controls.
