HPE Unveils New Security Component to Protect Against Threats
HPE also introduced a new zero-trust security element this week, which is expected to be available in fall 2021. In a June 22 press release, the company announced multiple enhancements to its HPE GreenLake platform, including the newly unveiled Project Aurora.
“Project Aurora will embed within the HPE GreenLake cloud platform building blocks to automatically and continuously verify the integrity of the hardware, firmware, operating systems, platforms, and workloads, including security workloads. In addition, Project Aurora’s continuous attestation capabilities can be used to automatically detect advanced threats from silicon to cloud in seconds,” the press release noted.
At HPE Discover, Adriane Cardozo, HPE program manager for security engineering, extolled Project Aurora’s effectiveness in defending against cyberattacks.
“Attackers are becoming increasingly sophisticated and ambitious,” she said, citing upper layer workloads and operating systems with potentially vulnerable code, as well as software supply chains.
Over time, she said, Project Aurora is designed to deliver “a set of zero-trust building blocks that, among other things, will automatically and continuously verify the integrity of hardware components, operating systems, platforms and workloads.”
“Trust and integrity are now more critical than ever before,” Cardozo added. “We must assert trust, from devices to workloads to everything in between. No matter where they run this, when thinking about security edge or securing a device, we must think about the integrity of all layers.”
