HP partners with FireEye for cyberattack investigation and response

FireEye's technology will be offered as part of HP's Enterprise Services

Hewlett-Packard is partnering with computer security company FireEye to give it a technological edge in detecting and investigating cyberattacks.

FireEye's threat detection and incident response capabilities will be incorporated into HP's Enterprise Services. The companies are planning to offer an "industry standard reference architecture" centered around advanced threat protection and incident response, according to a news release Tuesday from the RSA security conference in San Francisco.

The two companies will have a Global Incident Response team to investigate cyberattacks and offer an Advanced Compromise Assessment service, which will evaluate whether a company has been breached.

The partnership with FireEye may prove beneficial for HP. The computer security market continues to grow, as more and more companies have been affected by costly data breaches. FireEye's Mandiant division has been widely called on by large companies for data breach investigations.

HP has been struggling to find new areas of growth. In November, it announced it would split into two companies: Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, composed of its enterprise hardware, software and services businesses. The other is HP Inc.,made up of its PC and printing businesses.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
