IBM Has Built An Intelligent Cloud Security Portfolio!

IBM has built an intelligent security portfolio for protecting people, data File photo shows a worker behind a logo at the IBM stand on the CeBIT computer fair in Hanoverand applications in the cloud. Built on IBM’s investments in cloud, security and analytics software and services, the new offerings are designed to protect a business’s most vital data and applications using advanced analytics across their enterprise, public and private clouds and mobile devices — collectively known as the hybrid cloud model.

This rapid adoption of cloud is taking place as businesses still struggle to safeguard their existing IT systems against attackers who are becoming increasingly sophisticated and more difficult to detect. Currently, 75 percent of security breaches take days, weeks or even months to be discovered, significantly increasing the damage inflicted by attackers.

Customers are now moving actual critical workloads to the cloud and they expect enterprise grade security to move with it,” said Vaidyanathan Iyer, Country Leader, Security Systems, IBM India/South Asia. “We have pivoted our entire security portfolio to the cloud to help customers lock down user access, control data and maintain visibility. With the right visibility into threats, enterprises can more securely connect their people, data and processes to the cloud.”

IBM’s new cloud security tools use proven analytics to give companies a clear line of sight into the security status of their entire business—from private data centers, to the cloud—even to an individual employee’s mobile device. This unprecedented “single-pane-of-glass” view shows exactly who is using the cloud, what data individuals are accessing and from where they are accessing it.

Designed to be used with different users, whether it be a developer or line-of-business executive, the portfolio also includes analytics and security intelligence for public cloud services such as IBM’s SoftLayer. In addition, the offering features IBM’s Managed Security Services platform, which can help secure the cloud for IBM clients as well as clients of companies like Amazon Web Services and Salesforce.com.

According to a new IBM study of nearly 150 Chief Information Security Information Officers (CISOs), while 85 percent say their organizations are now moving to cloud, almost half expect a major cloud provider to experience a security breach. Despite these concerns, critical workloads processing customer and sensitive data are still moving to the cloud.
