HP Inc. has announced enhancements to its HP Wolf Security endpoint protection portfolio, with the launch of Sure Access Enterprise (SAE). SAE protects users with rights to access sensitive data, systems, and applications. It prevents attackers from hi-jacking these privileged sessions – even if the users’ endpoint device is compromised, the access to high value data and systems can remain secure. This stops minor endpoint breaches turning into major security incidents.

Available for both HP and non-HP devices, SAE leverages HP’s task isolation technology to run each privileged access session within its own, hardware-enforced virtual machine (VM). This ensures the confidentiality and integrity of the data being accessed, isolating it from any malware in the endpoint operating system. Users are free to conduct privileged, non-privileged, and personal activities securely from one machine. This improves user experience, reduces IT overheads, and enhances protection.  

“Gaining access to a privileged users’ device is a critical step in the attack chain. From here, an attacker can scrape credentials, escalate privileges, move laterally, and exfiltrate sensitive data.” comments Ian Pratt, Global Head of Security for Personal Systems at HP Inc. “Sure Access Enterprise is a unique solution that prevents this escalation, thwarting attackers.”
