Keep your data safe with software

In the realm of cloud security, locking down a data center environment and its physical server hardware is only half the battle — you have to protect your infrastructure from the software side as well. To fight the good fight, IBM offers a complete array of Intrusion Protection Systems (IPS) and Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS) software for both the network and server/host level.
