HP is working with Israeli cyber security firm Deep Instinct to launch HP Sure Sense to prevent advanced cyber attacks.
Financial details were not disclosed, however an industry source estimated the deal was worth more than US$150 million over a few years for Deep Instinct.
Rolling out on HP's latest EliteBook and HP ZBook laptops, HP Sure Sense works on or offline.
With over 350,000 new malware varieties being discovered daily, HP said it required a new line of cyber security defence, noting that HP Sure Sense uses artificial intelligence and deep learning to predict and prevent security threats.
“We believe every PC decision is a security decision and the addition of HP Sure Sense to our hardware-enforced security stack reinforces our commitment to providing customers with the most secure and manageable PCs,” said Andy Rhodes, global head of Commercial Personal Systems at HP.
“By teaming up with Deep Instinct on the development of HP Sure Sense, we are providing end users with a powerful solution that confidently predicts and prevents security threats both today and in the future.”
Guy Caspi, CEO and co-founder of Deep Instinct, said his firm was working with HP to secure millions of devices.
"This is only the first step in what will be a long and strategic partnership with HP," he said.
