HP Debuts EnterpriseView into Risk

As an IT security executive, your ability to effectively manage risk depends in large part on having an accurate operational viewpoint into the security posture of your organization's IT assets. But gathering actionable intelligence from a wide range of systems and platforms can be a complicated task.

Announced today, the HP Security Intelligence and Risk Management (SIRM) platform and HP's new EnterpriseView module are designed to address the common problem of inadequate security visibility, enabling organizations to apply security defenses in response to business risk. EnterpriseView pulls in data from security and operational technologies to provide a holistic view of an organization's overall security posture.

"EnterpriseView gives [companies] the ability to effectively manage risk across their organization, both with a heat map for prioritization as well as quantitative measurements," Michael Callahan, Vice President, Worldwide Product and Solution Marketing at HP, told InternetNews.com.

Callahan noted that the platform will also show administrators how risk levels rise and fall as changes are made across an enterprise. By being able to manage and measure risk, an enterprise will be able to adhere to certain risk level targets in the same way that organizations already are committed to service level agreements.
