Overview
Bottom rule

IBM® Resilient Systems Incident Response Platform is one of the leading platforms for orchestrating and automating incident response processes. Resilient Incident Response Platform, a product that was acquired from Resilient Systems Inc, an IBM company, can quickly and easily integrate with your organization's existing security and IT investments to:

  • Make security alerts ready for use near-instantly.
  • Provide valuable intelligence and incident context.
  • Enable security teams to help eliminate or streamline critical steps.

Resilient Incident Response Platform offers a robust response to the daily events that can require actions from your security teams. This a growing challenge that is shared globally by organizations of all sizes and across all industries. Responding effectively in the face of a cyber crisis becomes harder as the stakes have gotten higher and the actors more sophisticated.

Resilient Incident Response Platform provides dynamic action plans for more than 18 different types of incidents and best practices for responding to virtually all incident types, which include malware, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS), and lost devices. This extensive knowledge base can help lead your team through the most effective response, while capable of being customized to your standard operating procedures. Team members can quickly access data from more than a dozen cyber threat intelligence feeds and other integrated cyber security and IT systems.

Incident response teams can manage and collaborate on their response directly within the platform. Unlike ticketing systems and other general-purpose IT tools, Resilient Incident Response Platform is fully configurable and purpose-built for incident response. Comprehensive analysis, customizable dashboards, and robust reporting features can help ensure that senior leadership can access key information when needed.

In May, 2016, IBM acquired Resilient Systems Inc., a leading provider of incident response solutions. With this acquisition, IBM is positioned to provide the industry's first integrated, end-to-end Security Operations and Response Platform offering that spans the entire lifecycle of an attack, from protection and detection to response.

Description
Bottom rule

Resilient Incident Response Platform can help automate and orchestrate the processes for dealing with cyber incidents, such as breaches and lost devices, and can enable businesses to respond more quickly. 

When Resilient Incident Response Platform is installed as a virtual appliance on VMWare ESX 4.x .or later, it can integrate with existing security detection and remediation systems. This allows the offering to help coordinate and automate the actions that are required to respond to a security incident by categorizing the incident and implementing best practices, or playbooks, to respond accordingly.

With a number of integrations with established security systems, which include IBM Security QRadar® SIEM, Resilient can share data and trigger actions within those systems to help remediate security incidents, offer additional context on actionable items, and suggest best practices to help prevent future incidents.

The offering includes a knowledge base of global breach notification regulations that is maintained and updated by privacy professionals at Resilient Systems, Inc., an IBM Company. This knowledge base can be used by team members to help understand breach notification compliance requirements that may apply to a security incident.

The program's specifications and specified operating environment information may be found in documentation accompanying the program, if available, such as a readme file, or other information published by IBM, such as an announcement letter. Documentation and other program content may be supplied only in the English language. Such information is provided subject to the following terms. IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection and, response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, misappropriated, or misused, or can result in damage to or misuse of your systems, including for use in attacks on others. No IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product, service, or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper use or access.

    Authorized User


Authorized User

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User given access to the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, through a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case, the following applies. Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.


Install

Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An install is an installed copy of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each install of the program.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
