HPE Protect 2016, Improve Security, Streamline Ops of HPE Helion OpenStack with AppGate

Cloud environments are dynamic and complex, and managing user access is a continual challenge. Cloud platforms manage access control via IP addresses, rather than users. As a result, organizations end up with over-privileged users, unmanaged vulnerabilities and a never-ending manual configuration change treadmill. And, they can’t easily meet security or compliance needs, which ultimately poses a barrier to adoption of cloud platforms.

As a result, security remains a significant concern, often impeding the adoption of cloud. Traditional security tools can’t bridge this gap, so security professionals, who are under tremendous pressure to enable business agility, end up granting users overly-broad network access to their cloud environments. This increases the risk of security and compliance issues, especially with dynamically changing cloud environments – something that we’ve unfortunately seen repeatedly as a root enabler of recent data breaches.

AppGate Integration with HPE Helion OpenStck at HPE Protect 2016

To solve this challenge, announced today, we will unveil our AppGate integration with HPE Helion OpenStack, an enterprise-grade distribution of OpenStack® software, the leading open source cloud platform at HPE Protect 2016. Integrating with HPE Helion OpenStack, AppGate helps to improve security, streamline security operations, and provide deep insight into user access activity.

AppGate ensures that users can only access those network services and applications to which they’re specifically entitled, and makes all other network resources completely invisible. By taking a user-centric approach to access, and leveraging user context and simple policies to determine which cloud resources each user can access, AppGate streamlines security and extends the value of HPE Helion OpenStack implementations.

In addition, Cryptzone will unveil its integration of AppGate with HPE Security ArcSight. AppGate supplies ArcSight with a rich view of user activity on the network, powers better detection of anomalous behavior and enables automated remediation of user access.

Meet with Cryptzone at HPE Protect 2016

Visit Cryptzone at booth SB45 at HPE Protect 2016 from Sept. 14-16, 2016 to learn about:
