The integration of the HP TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention System and the Critical Watch FusionVM solution extends beyond basic threat-to-vulnerability correlation offering customers a comprehensive process for connecting IPS and vulnerability management functions. The joint solution works by mapping the FusionVM vulnerability library to corresponding filters from HP TippingPoint's Digital Vaccine (DV) service. For security administrators that are dealing with an ever-evolving threat landscape, this mapping provides a view of which DV filters are turned on, how they map to the current threat and what other security options are available to mitigate the attack.
These integrated tools allow enterprises to implement a simple and automated closed loop assessment and protection process in which IT personnel can make highly informed and timely risk remediation decisions, as well as provide the tools necessary to establish clear assessment and remediation processes and document IT remediation to maintain regulatory compliance and present a clear audit trail for audit defense.
HP TippingPoint and Critical Watch have integrated the industry leading intrusion prevention system (IPS) and vulnerability management (VM) system into a single solution that will allow enterprises to increase overall security, implement a closed loop process to meet regulatory compliance, while reducing demands on IT personnel.
