Acquisition to widen HP’s security portfolio, monitor real-time events and threats
ECMPlus – HP has today acquired ArcSight, the security and compliance management company, for $1.5 billion.
According to HP, ArcSight’s technology was superior to theirs and will now be ‘highly complementary’ with its existing security hardware and software.
Tom Reilly, President and CEO at ArcSight said: ‘By combining ArcSight’s Enterprise Threat and Risk Management Platform with HP’s breadth of application development and operations management solutions, HP will be able to offer an integrated security platform that delivers broader visibility, deeper context, and faster remediation of enterprise wide security and risk related events. In a world where perimeter security is no longer enough, businesses need this holistic approach to securing their networks, applications and sensitive data.”
