The HP Atalla Cloud Encryption technology does not allow an attacker that takes a snapshot of a user session to be able to capture the user’s encryption key, he said.
Managing data encryption as it moves across an enterprise and throughout the lifecycle is also a challenge that HP is aiming to tackle. The new HP Atalla Information Protection and Control (IPC) applies and manages protection for data as it moves around an organization, Biketi said.
The Atalla business unit, one of HP’s oldest security businesses, got its start in 1973 as a security vendor for financial institutions. It was acquired in 1987 by Tandem Computers, which was acquired in 1997 by Compaq, which HP bought in 2002. Atalla technology is still widely used in financial services.
