Overview

Top rule

As clients move their businesses to the cloud, security data is spread across different tools, clouds, and on-premises IT environments. This creates gaps that can cause threats to be missed and require costly, complex integrations to close the holes.

Cloud Pak for Security V1.2 provides a platform that helps more quickly integrate clients' existing security tools to help generate deeper insights into threats across hybrid multicloud environments. By using an infrastructure-independent common operating environment that runs anywhere within a hybrid multicloud environment, clients can quickly search for threats, orchestrate actions, and automate responses, all while leaving their data where it resides.

In addition, Cloud Pak for Security V1.2 provides the following benefits:

  • Connects disparate data sources to help uncover hidden threats and improve risk-based decisions while leaving the data where it resides. Through the use of open standards and IBM innovations, clients can access IBM and third-party tools to search for threat indicators across any cloud or on-premises location.
  • Connects client workflows with a unified interface to help respond faster to security incidents. Enables clients to orchestrate and automate security responses so they can better prioritize their teams' time.
  • Comprises containerized software that includes the Red Hat® OpenShift® enterprise application platform that has been adopted by more than 1,000 organizations worldwide.
  • Optimized to operate on the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, which is included with Cloud Pak for Security V1.2.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion 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 regulatory compliant, 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.
