HP announced it intends to acquire Voltage Security in a bid to expand its big data and cloud encryption services portfolio.
Voltage provides data encryption and tokenisation technology that can be applied to databases and distributed file storage systems (i.e. Hadoop), email and application data regardless of where that data sits, and HP said the acquisition will build on its earlier efforts with the Atalla portfolio of security solutions unveiled last summer.
“Voltage’s proven data-centric encryption and tokenization technology will complement HP Atalla, HP’s information security and encryption business, helping our customers protect their most sensitive information whether it lives in the cloud, across mobile platforms, in big data environments, or within legacy computer systems for critical regulatory compliance,” said Art Gilliland, senior vice president and general manager of enterprise security products at HP in prepared remarks.
“This announcement aligns with HP’s focus on end-to-end protection of the data itself, helping enterprises neutralize the impact of a breach and proactively combat new security threats,” he added.
In a statement on the company’s website Voltage said HP “has the scale and resources to support” its customers: “With Voltage, HP will offer customers unparalleled data protection capabilities built to close the gaps that exist in traditional encryption and tokenization approaches.”
