Hewlett-Packard knows that Web servers are typically the first point of attack for security breaches, which can lead to considerable damage as the attacker penetrates the rest of the system. To combat that, H-P has come out with its Webenforcer software, which strengthens the Web server platform by identifying and repairing vulnerabilities and unsecure settings. And with the H-P Security Update Subscription Service, Webenforcer continuously monitors and enforces security settings to protect against new vulnerabilities.
