Staying ahead of the bad guys requires two things: a good plan and a good partner. Your security plan must be robust, flexible, and responsive. Your partner must do the heavy lifting, so your team can concentrate to what matters most to your business. HP Security Research Zero-Day Initiative has more than 3000 security researchers looking for vulnerabilities in the software you rely on. Once they are found, HP TippingPoint DVLabs pushes out weekly digital vaccine packages to proactively protect customers from emerging threats.

But staying protected isn't just a numbers game. Attend this webinar to learn:

  • How we develop "virtual patches" that block any attempt to exploit the vulnerability rather than simple filters to block individual exploits
  • How our approach reduces false positives
  • How the HP Security Research and DV Labs team keeps them out to let you rest easier
