Hewlett Packard Enterprise Unveils Foundation for Next-Generation Intelligent Security Operations


New HPE ArcSight Data Platform 2.0 delivers industry's first open security architecture that seamlessly connects to third party platforms, including Hadoop.

NATIONAL HARBOR, MD, September 14, 2016 Today, from HPE Protect 2016, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced HPE ArcSight Data Platform (ADP) 2.0, the industrys first open architecture solution that connects ArcSight to third-party platforms including Hadoop to bring unprecedented visibility across every part of the Enterprise (IT, OT, IoT, and Physical).


Today, analysts struggle to detect and respond to threats using all available data connected to the network. Security operations centers (SOC) must be able to collect events at exponentially increasing rates. This means ingestion of millions not hundreds or thousands - of events per second. But scalability alone is not enough. Analysts require a solution that gives them a wider view into all connected systems in order to find threats more effectively. The combination of scalability, open architecture, and broad visibility are the foundation for Intelligent Security Operations.


HPE ADP 2.0 is powered by an integrated Kafka-based Event Broker that allows for the consumption of up to 1 million events per second. With this open architecture, not only can it take data from anywhere, it can send that data to any location whether ArcSight ESM or third-party platforms such as Hadoop. ADP 2.0 does this while improving search speeds up to 50% faster.[1]


Security analysts need to widen their view into data systems in order to find threats at the scale and speed required in todays landscape, said Tom Powledge, vice president and general manager, HPE Security ArcSight, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. With HPE ADP 2.0, were giving customers the open architecture and scalability they need to be effective in stopping threats.


Serving as the foundation for the Intelligent Security Operations, HPE ADP 2.0, features:


  • Kafka-based Event Broker that allows for the consumption of up to 1 million events per second
  • HPE ArcSight Management Console that provides one centralized view for end-to-end monitoring and simplified processing of bulk operations
  • Normalization, categorization and enrichment of data for security makes monitoring for security easy
  • More than 350 pre-built connectors that help customers easily extend their data collection sources without manual customization



HPE ADP 2.0 is the first step in achieving an Intelligent Security Operations by transforming the data collection process, and simplifying administrative tasks making organizations more agile and effective in their monitoring capabilities.



The HPE ArcSight Data Platform 2.0 will be available globally on October 5th.
