HP eyes security, SMB spaces
While Hewlett-Packard has lofty plans to conquer markets such as security and SMB (small and midsize business), the company does not give rival Sun Microsystems much credence in efforts such as Linux and servers.
HP has security projects in development such as moving its SSL-based VPN technology to 802.11 wireless networks, said Shane Robison, HP executive vice president and chief technology and strategy officer. Additionally, automatic virus detection and incident response is in development in HP's labs, Robison said in interview on Thursday.
Also in development is software for defining security policies.
Security software in development would either become part of the company's HP OpenView system management platform or layered on top of it, according to Robison.
