Security for Virtual and Cloud Environments
The HP TippingPoint Secure Virtualization Framework (SVF) is designed to provide IT personnel a single consolidated, yet flexible solution for extending the HP TippingPoint N-Series Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), powered by DVLabs Security Threat Intelligence and Research, into the virtualized data center. br />
HP TippingPoint SVF provides purpose-built solutions that are integrated with VMware and designed to enable the HP TippingPoint N-Series IPS to enforce full data center firewall segmentation and IPS inspection between trust zones for physical hosts of trust zones for physical hosts, virtual machines (VMs), and even mobile VMs. SVF also provides network/security teams with real-time visibility and control of virtual environments by:
HP TippingPoint Secure Virtualization Framework provides industry-leading network security solutions for securing physical, virtual and cloud data centers.

Kevin Swanson, lead engineer for enterprise storage for the Roswell Cancer Institute, says his organization has seen reduced costs on everything from the blade enclosure and cabling to the switches and storage. Using Virtual Connect, the Roswell Park Cancer Institute only had to cable once, making any changes flexibly and easily.
"It cuts the number of cables and ports I have. It allows me cloud-like functionality without having to worry about a lot of the intricacies. I can start to think about my storage as capacity rather than individual entities,” I get flexibility I never had before,” says Swanson. Using Virtual Connect, the Roswell Park Cancer Institute only had to cable once, making any changes flexibly and easily."

"Network traffic within the enterprise data center will continue to grow during the next two to four years by more than the traditional 30%. These new traffic patterns will appear arbitrary and even chaotic, with fluctuations that can be 90 times higher than the traffic peaks experienced by most data centers today."*
