In this news, we discuss the IBM Advances Cloud Pak for Security to Manage Threats Across Tools, Teams and Clouds.
Bengaluru, Karnataka, India – Business Wire India • Open platform leverages artificial intelligence and automation to streamline threat management in hybrid cloud environments and disparate security tools • Industry unmatched ability to connect threat management, data security and identity within a single platform • New turnkey security services to tackle the cybersecurity skills shortage and IBM remote workforce (NYSE: IBM) Security today announced new upcoming capabilities for Cloud Pak for Security, including a one-of-a-kind data security solution that enables organizations to detect, respond to, and protect against threats . their most sensitive data in hybrid cloud environments. Designed to unify previously disconnected security technologies, IBM has extended Cloud Pak for Security to include new data sources, integrations, and services that allow security operations teams to manage the entire threat lifecycle from a single console. With these abilities to come, Cloud Pak for Security will include access to six threat information feeds, 25 pre-defined connections to IBM and third-party data sources, and 165 case management integrations – which are connected through advanced AI to prioritize threats, and automation playbooks to streamline response actions for security teams.
Sudeep Das, Technical Manager, IBM Security Systems, IBM India / South Asia, said: “As the cloud and remote working have dispersed the traditional IT perimeter, security response teams need More in-depth insight into hybrid cloud environments – including user, identity, and data level Security. Built on open cloud native technologies, Cloud Pak for Security is the first capability of its kind that integrates data security directly into the threat management lifecycle. Cloud Pak for Security delivers a streamlined threat management lifecycle using advanced AI, analytics, and automation. Additionally, it’s a single, unified user interface that connects the entire threat management process through end-to-end workflows, from initial detection to response. Indian businesses experienced an average total cost of Rs 140 million data breaches in the 2020, an increase of 9.4% over 2019 according to our cost of data breach report. These advancements in Cloud Pak for Security will increase the security posture of Indian organizations and enable them to gain deeper insights by combining data-level insights and analysis of user behavior with threat detection. With the adoption of the cloud and remote working having dispersed the traditional IT perimeter, security response teams can benefit from deeper insight into security in hybrid cloud environments. User behavior, identities and data security have traditionally been isolated from threat management. With new features to come, Cloud Pak for Security will become the industry’s first platform to connect data-level insights and user behavior analytics with threat detection, investigation and response. Today, IBM is announcing capabilities to take the Cloud Pak for Security even further, including: • Coordinated Threat Response + Data Security: IBM has developed an innovative new approach to provide security teams with visibility into the data activity, compliance, and risk, without the need to leave their primary response platform. The new integrated data security hub, slated for general availability in Q4, enables analysts to quickly know the location of their sensitive data in hybrid cloud environments, as well as who has access to it, how which they are used and the best. way to protect it. Bridging the disconnect between data security and threat management can reduce the response time to data breaches, which currently take over six months to identify and contain on average for recently surveyed organizations. • Access to Cutting-Edge Threat Intelligence: Cloud Pak for Security expands its collection of threat intelligence, helping customers detect early warning signs of active threat campaigns impacting businesses worldwide. In addition to IBM’s X-Force Threat Intelligence feed, the platform will provide pre-built integrations for five additional threat information feeds from third-party sources including AlienVault OTX, Cisco Threatgrid, MaxMind Geolocation, SANS Internet StormCenter, and Virustotal whose general availability is planned. in the fourth quarter, and additional threat streams are expected to be added in 2021.
• Dedicated Services and Support: IBM launches new dedicated security services to help organizations modernize their security operations with Cloud Pak for Security, leveraging a holistic approach linking products and services. With a wide range of flexible service options, IBM experts can help customers deploy and manage Cloud Pak for Security in any environment, including end-to-end threat management, managed security services , as well as strategy, advice and integration support. “Complexity is the biggest challenge our industry faces, forcing resource-strapped security teams to manually bridge the dots between disparate tools and security data sources,” said Justin Youngblood, vice president of ‘IBM Security. “Cloud Pak for Security is fully based on open native cloud technologies to connect any tool in the security ecosystem. With these updates, we will be the first in the industry to combine intelligence and external threat management with data security and identity, helping businesses modernize their security operations and lay the foundation for a zero-trust security strategy. Open Connections Across the Security Ecosystem Cloud Pak for Security leverages open technologies to create an interoperable foundation and deeper connections between IBM and third-party tools. For example, the platform uses STIX-Shifter, an open-source library that allows security analysts to search for indicators of threat across all connected data sources with a single query. In addition, Cloud Pak for Security is based on Red Hat OpenShift, providing an open, containerized foundation that can be easily deployed in cloud environments on site, public and private.
This open approach allows Cloud Pak for Security to be more than just a set of security capabilities, but rather a platform to fully integrate security processes across tools and clouds. The platform uses advanced artificial intelligence, analytics and automation to streamline the entire threat management lifecycle, including native features for Security Information and Event Monitoring (SIEM), threat intelligence, user behavior analysis, data security, and security orchestration automation and response. These capabilities are delivered through a single, unified user interface that connects the entire threat management process through end-to-end workflows, from detection to response. Through IBM Security’s participation in the Open Cybersecurity Alliance, the company will continue to work with the community to advance the development and adoption of open technologies to make security more interoperable.
Unified Approach to Products and Services The open framework of Cloud Pak for Security makes it ideal for collaboration between security teams and external service providers that increase the security skills and expertise of enterprises. Cloud Pak for Security also supports multi-tenancy, which allows service providers to leverage a single instance of the platform to serve multiple businesses and sub-organizations while keeping their data isolated. The extended capabilities of Cloud Pak for Security can be supported and integrated with IBM Security Services, with unified offerings that connect technologies and services. Customers can take advantage of X-Force Threat Management, a continuous end-to-end threat management service that uses a programmatic approach to help customers develop their overall threat management strategy over time. Enterprises can also take advantage of a wide variety of IBM managed security services, using Cloud Pak for Security to facilitate real-time collaboration and visibility between customers and service teams. Organizations can also use IBM Security’s expert consultants to help them plan, deploy, and integrate Cloud Pak for Security with their existing security investments.
