ProCurve solutions may not only save you money in the most obvious way (they're often substantially less expensive than competitor offerings), they may also save you money in a number of not-so-obvious ways. Because ProCurve solutions are easy to manage, they require less time from your IT staff. Because they're built on open standards, they protect your existing networking investments. And because they are easy to upgrade, you can focus on more important business opportunities.¤¤ProCurve technology helps overcome the limitations of centralized, host-based security by adding critical access enforcement to the network edge, where traffic enters and users connect with applications. This fundamental shift from core-based security architecture can improve security throughout your network.¤¤For years ProCurve has led the drive to establish open industry standards by creating and contributing technologies to the public domain, as well as participating in and leading groups dedicated to the cause. Because our solutions are based on these open standards, they are far more versatile, less costly, and less complex than comparable proprietary products and architectures.
