ARMONK, N.Y. -- Armonk-based IBM announced the creation of the industry’s first intelligent security portfolio for protecting people, data and applications in 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 "single-pane-of-glass" view shows exactly who is using the cloud, what data individuals are accessing and from where they are accessing it.
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 critical workloads to the cloud and they expect enterprise grade security to move with it,” Brendan Hannigan, general manager, IBM Security Systems said. “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."
