When HP announced our definitive agreement to buy Voltage Security last week, we said that enterprises are facing a new paradigm in enterprise security that requires organizations to protect not just their systems, but the data itself. What our customers need is a data-centric solution that protects sensitive information from the moment it’s created throughout its entire lifecycle. That means protecting data wherever it moves – from emails to databases and attachments, in applications, in big data and analytic tools, through payment systems, mobile devices, on premise and in the cloud, in use, at rest, and in motion – for practically any data, anywhere.

We are genuinely excited about extending the capabilities of every product in the Voltage portfolio and can’t wait to give them the global scale and reach that HP brings, with our technologies and access to thousands of partners around the world. Security and protection of unstructured data throughout its entire lifecycle is critical for enterprises everywhere, and HP’s vision and execution in information governance and e-discovery is industry-leading. In the SecureMail and SecureMail Mobile product families, Voltage has a uniquely scalable and simple-to-manage approach to this problem that brings better security without traditional cost and complexity.

We are fully committed to the Voltage portfolio and are excited to enhance these product families with other powerful HP technologies, as we make them widely available and supported globally.

The transaction is expected to close in the first half of HP’s fiscal 2015, subject to customary closing conditions.
