Connected security for a hybrid, multicloud world
As you move your business to the cloud, you need to work smarter. Security data is frequently spread across cloud and on-premises environments, exposing gaps and vulnerabilities.
IBM Cloud Pak® for Security can help you gain deeper insights, mitigate risks and accelerate response. With an open security platform that can advance your zero trust strategy, you can use your existing investments while leaving your data where it is—helping your team become more efficient and collaborative.
How much does a data breach cost?

Detect and respond to breaches
Data breach detection and response
Operationalize data security and uncover insights related to compliance violations and risk by connecting additional security data and enriching workflows. For example, if abnormal user behavior is detected, Cloud Pak for Security sends out an alert and a case is generated in IBM Security® QRadar® SOAR. A security analyst will review the case, use SOAR to respond and initiate federated search to enrich investigation.
Prevent account takeovers
Dynamic account takeover prevention
Understand identity risks by connecting user events for deeper context and actionable unified workflows. If a suspicious login attempt is detected, IBM Security® Verify sends data to IBM Security® QRadar® SIEM, which correlates the alert and sends it to SOAR for remediation. A security analyst will initiate a federated search for further enrichment, and future login attempts are challenged with multi-factor authentication.
Detect system vulnerabilities
Detection and response to vulnerabilities
Improve SOC efficiency by using unified workflows and automated investigations while encouraging collaboration in a single view. If a Log4J injection is detected, offense info is sent from SIEM and a case is created in SOAR. The artifacts are enriched by the threat intelligence platform and a federated search is performed. An analyst can use an out-of-the box task to remediate the threat.
Proactively mitigate risks
Proactive risk mitigation using risk scores
Benefit from proactive risk mitigation by analyzing cross-segment security data and providing at-a-glance insights for the whole team. When threat events are pulled in from connected data sources, unique risk scores are created based on correlated threat events. A security analyst can take remediation actions, starting from the highest severity alert, and use dynamic playbooks for additional response actions.
