HP unveils new unified Wolf Security platform
Platform designed to make it easier for channel partners to market HP security products
HP has announced HP Wolf Security, a new integrated portfolio of secure by design PCs and printers, hardware-enforced endpoint security software, and endpoint security services.
The unified offering aims to better protect businesses from the growing number of cyber threats, at a time when hackers are increasingly targeting remote workers.
Essentially, HP Wolf Security unites the company’s security offerings into a single platform for its channel to take to customers - which HP says helps address the increasing need for comprehensive endpoint infrastructure and protection.
“The mass shift to remote work as a result of the pandemic has led to new worker behaviour that is unwittingly increasing cyber security risk and increasing pressure on IT teams with less visibility than before,” explained Neil Sawyer, director of Channel & Partner Alliances at HP.
“With an ever-growing number of endpoints to guard, customers of all sizes are looking for new tools. That’s why HP is arming partners with HP Wolf Security training and certification through HP University in addition to marketing tools and resources.”
Rooted in Zero Trust principles, HP Wolf Security harnesses state-of-the-art technologies to reduce pressure on IT - including self-healing firmware, in-memory breach detection, threat containment via virtualisation, and cloud-based intelligence.
The platform aims to shrink the addressable attack surface, enabling remote recovery from firmware attacks, enhancing threat data collection, as well as delivering high fidelity alerts.
HP Wolf Security has been structured into three categories to cater to differing business sizes and needs: HP Wolf Security for Business, HP Wolf Pro Security, and Wolf Enterprise Security.
The HP Wolf Pro Security category offers SMEs a host of tools and services, including threat containment, malware prevention, and identity protection – all integrated with HP’s hardware security capabilities.
In addition, HP Wolf Essential Security is also included with HP+ smart printers, providing 24-7 built-in protection.
Ian Pratt, global head of security for HP’s Personal Systems segment, said the firm saw an opportunity to help customers simplify security and stay ahead of future threats.
“The leading technology of the future will be secure by design and intelligent enough to not simply detect threats, but to contain and mitigate their impact, and to recover quickly in the event of a breach, which could happen at any time, to any one of us,” he said. “HP Wolf Security is a new breed of endpoint security tailored for the future of work.”
