ProCurve Networking by HP has announced new and updated products in its ProActive Defense security portfolio. The products aim to provide customers with reliable network protection and network access control.

The new products include the ProCurve Network Immunity Manager, ProCurve Network Access Controller 800 and the ProCurve Identity Driven Manager (IDM) 2.2. The ProCurve Network Immunity Manager is a security management application that delivers network threat management, detection and response.

The ProCurve Network Access Controller 800, which is to be launched soon, is an appliance that adds endpoint integrity to a company's secure access control solution, while the ProCurve IDM 2.2 solution will be a free upgrade for existing IDM 2.0 customers. IDM 2.2 will work with the new network access controller to provide secure and comprehensive endpoint integrity while easing deployment and reducing complexity for IT heads.

All ProCurve security products are part of the ProCurve ProActive Defense strategy, which combines pre-emptive techniques such as access control with defensive methods such as automated threat detection and response.

"Fortifying enterprise security without massive replacement of infrastructure is a critical focus of ProCurve's Adaptive Networks vision," said Paul Congdon, chief technology officer and security business director, ProCurve Networking by HP. (pictured)

ProCurve Network Immunity Manager, a plug-in to ProCurve Manager Plus 2.2 automatically detects and responds to threats. It helps to provide protection against zero day and known virus attacks across networks.

ProCurve also plans to introduce the ProCurve Network Access Controller 800 that provides endpoint integrity verification while easing deployment and reducing network complexity.

The solution, expected in the third quarter of 2007, will use ProCurve's IDM technology to prevent security breaches by controlling user access and connectivity across networks.

ProCurve IDM 2.2, expected to be available in the third quarter of 2007, will provide dynamic integration with Microsoft Active Directory, unified access control across both wired and wireless networks and easier management.
