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 really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
