Hewlett-Packard Rolls Out Security Software From Acquisitions
Hewlett-Packard Co. (HPQ) unveiled a range of new computer-security software today, part of an effort to tap about $14 billion in acquisitions during the past year to help customers manage their data centers.
ArcSight Express 3.0, a package of computer hardware and software, combs through logs of network activity and users’ actions to look for cyber attacks, Hewlett-Packard said today in a statement. It also introduced a new Fortify Software Security Center product, which can test applications for vulnerabilities to attack, and Tipping Point Web Application Digital Vaccine software that identifies malicious network traffic.

Chief Executive Officer Leo Apotheker is under pressure to make acquisitions pay off and expand the company’s foothold in data-center equipment and software. Hewlett-Packard has cut sales forecasts three times and reversed course on a plan to produce smartphones and tablets with its WebOS software, rankling investors. The company also said on Aug. 18 it would explore a spinoff of its $41 billion personal systems group.
