Securing your enterprise with the trifecta of partnerships at HP Discover

first_imgAdversaries R Us continue to gain momentum through collaboration and innovative techniques planning their next attack.  They get better and better at continuously gaining access to the most valuable asset for all enterprises – data.  The most effective way to combat Adversaries R Us is to beat them at their own game by through collaborative security intelligence.  Such ecosystems are best enabled through global partnerships across all layers of the IT infrastructure including the processor, servers, the operating system or the software. This theme clearly emerges from the HP Discover Security Track sessions that highlight how the trifecta of HP, Microsoft and Intel come together to empower global organizations with multiple options to build out a better, more secure enterprise.At the last HP Discover Conference in Las Vegas, HP CEO Meg Whitman had quipped “Sometimes 30-year marriages need a little rejuvenation,” on stage with Intel CEO Brian Krzanich and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella by video.  Perhaps one can witness the outcomes of said rejuvenation through the trifecta of this partnership.In the IT6611 session, Jonathan Donaldson – General Manager, Software Defined Infrastructure, Cloud Platforms, Intel asks what we tend to give up when we carry on our daily lives in our own ecosystem of devices, apps and the Internet of Things. Donaldson highlights how Intel is collaborating with partners to protect the privacy of individuals.  Intel’s approach to doing this is with a foundation that requires the datacenter be more agile, secure, and anonymous.Frank Mong – HP VP & GM, Security Solutions and Bret Arsenault – Microsoft VP & CISO encourage you to start thinking like a bad guy in TK6315.  “While the security industry remains overinvested in products and technology, and underinvested in people and processes, hackers are spending more money and sharing information”, reads the abstract.  Next generation of security challenges require a new style of thinking fostered by meaningful collaboration.  In IT6680, Arsenault asserts – “Cyber Security: It is not if, but when!”Guess who is responsible for Cloud Security? In B6557, Intel Fellow, Nigel Cook and HP Director Michael Aday detail how HP Helion OpenStack can enable enterprises to better trust their clouds and ensure that their most sensitive and important information is treated appropriately. Remember the 3 equations for the most effective cloud solutions? The session highlights HP+Intel strategy for enabling business critical and highly secure workloads in the cloud through a variety of delivery models to address security requirements such as data governance and sovereignty.  Check out DT4252 that details a service provider’s experience deploying scalable, secure, enterprise-class, and cost-effective platform through HP Helion OpenStack.These are but small but significant windows into the work being done by each of these partners. The synergies realized by such partnerships to build a better, more secure enterprise, manifest themselves through these sessions.How about you? What are some of the partnership strategies that apply in the context of your enterprise?  Overall, what is the role of partnerships from the perspective of Enterprise Security?
