HP and VMware announce their collaboration to develop the next generation market security technology for the Cloud. The companies aim to advance customer protection by integrating HP TippingPoint IPS with VMware vShield™ and VMware vCloud Director®. Integrating the products will help enable pervasive security in the cloud by delivering unified security management, and by automating the processes of scanning, identifying threats and blocking attacks. As a result, security policies will become easier to maintain while delivering greater protection for traditional, virtualized and cloud infrastructure.
