Powerful threat protection through collaboration
Security threats are increasing. Clients need a better way to fight back.
As an IBM Business Partner, your ability to help clients integrate tools and understand and respond to actual threats is paramount. IBM Security is innovating to help you. Our strategy of integration with third-party security tools and collaboration among peers has fostered our growth and continues with some exciting announcements.
Partnering with Check Point to accelerate threat research
With one of the largest and most advanced research organizations in the world, IBM understands the importance of keeping up with advanced threats. IBM X-Force research has expanded greatly over the years, adding experts across multiple disciplines from application security to malware. Through a newly expanded partnership with Check Point Software, we are collaborating to share early stage threat research and accelerate key findings and responses. IBM and Check Point are also teaming up through upcoming mobile integrations between IBM MaaS360 Enterprise Mobile Management (EMM) and Check Point’s Mobile Threat Prevention (MTP).
Acquiring Resilient Systems to improve threat response
An advanced threat was detected. Now what? Most security experts agree that it is no longer a question of if when it comes to a security incident, but when and how. With the recent announcement to acquire Resilient, IBM intends to expand the forensics capabilities in QRadar through a comprehensive set of playbooks for responding to different incident types and tap into its database of global regulatory requirements and compliance actions. We can then automate the key actions needed to respond, from generating letters to regulators to notifying employees.
What is a platform without partners?
Even given the scope of IBM’s security footprint, partnerships are key to our success going forward. Our recent announcement of key integrations with Carbon Black’s endpoint security solutions adds to a long list of security technology partnerships including Exabeam, BrightPoint, STEALTHbits, Juniper Networks, TrendMicro and Arxan.
We believe these strategic partnerships will not only keep IBM ahead of the game in security, they will enable IBM Business Partners to deliver higher value to clients through better security integration. Learn more and collaborate:
