HP Introduces Industry’s First Application Self-Protection As-a-service Solution

HP Application Defender simplifies application security

WASHINGTON, HP today introduced HP Application Defender, the first cloud-managed application self-protection service that provides immediate visibility and actively defends production applications against attacks.  

As the number and complexity of enterprise applications grows, the attack surface for exploits increases exponentially, leaving enterprises even more exposed. Traditional methods of protecting applications can take significant time to implement and are focused on software that is in development—they don’t protect applications running in production. Additionally, with more than 80 percent of successful breaches occurring at the application layer,(1) it is clear that installing simple perimeter defense to protect production software lacks effectiveness.
