Focused On Security
Following the completion of its $8.8 billion spin-merger of HPE Software, Micro Focus took its newly acquired security technologies up a notch. At Protect 2017, held in Washington, D.C., this week, Micro Focus unveiled five updates to its security technologies, which include ArcSight, SecureData, Fortify and NetIQ. Travis Grandpre, director of product marketing, said the updates show the start of a faster innovation cycle emerging at Micro Focus, which is now the seventh largest pure-play software company.
"That's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us to almost redefine security," Grandpre said of the changes. There is an opportunity for Micro Focus to now, with the HPE Software assets, provide better security for data, applications and the cloud, he said. Take a look at the company's first five steps in that direction.
