avnettsMajor distributor Avnet Technology Solutions said it has added HP ArcSightLogger as part of its enterprise security product portfolio.

A log management tool, the ArcSight Logger is intended to provide management across search, reports, security, IT operations, application development and compliance.

Avnet claimed it is the only distributor in the UK to provide the entire HP networking portfolio along with HP enterprise security.

Andrew Stuart, HP business unit manager, Avnet Technology Solutions, UK, said: “Rogue employees, partners or criminal rings engaged in fraudulent activities only have to get it right once to create serious damage to an organisation’s network and reputation.  With access to a broader suite of HP enterprise software products, including enterprise event log management, network intrusion and application security, our partners can competitively differentiate themselves and deliver solutions to enhance threat detection and improve security while driving additional networking sales supported by Avnet.”

“Organisations need comprehensive enterprise security and compliance solutions to effectively manage network and application environments,” said Miles Rippon, manager, EMEA distribution, HP.  “With this extended partnership, Avnet can now include HP ArcSight in its portfolio of solutions for channel partners to deliver cost-effective log management capabilities to protect customers’ hybrid IT infrastructure from sophisticated cyber threats.”
