Secure to the core: A leading security company that’s also a leading cloud provider

As cloud adoption accelerates, organizations need to extend security to cloud-based data and workloads. Yet, security teams often lack the baseline capabilities for visibility, data protection and access control needed to protect these new environments. Without this, you may be unable to take the critical first steps to protect cloud assets, minimize risks, defend against threats and prevent inadvertent misconfigurations in cloud environments that can leave customer data at risk


When you partner with IBM®, you gain access to an IBM security team trusted by more than 12,000 customers in 133 countries with a broad array of products and services. 

Secure to the core

Visibility and intelligence for cloud

Extend visibility to cloud solutions and platforms with IBM QRadar® by collecting, normalizing and analyzing events to help detect threats. Deep integration with cloud services such as Amazon Web Service (AWS), Azure, and Office 365, as well as with traditional on-premises infrastructure, helps security teams better detect and respond to threats regardless of where they occur.

The solution also helps detect misconfigurations, such as those common in AWS S3 resources, which could unintentionally expose data. It can also provide insight into the use of shadow IT and expose which users have deployed, installed or leveraged unsanctioned tools.

Identity and access for cloud

Strengthen compliance verification and reduce risk in today's cloud environments. IBM’s leading IAM solution speeds business agility to adopt cloud applications, increases user productivity with single sign-on from any device, and enables greater IT efficiency by extending existing infrastructure. 

Data protection for cloud

Protect your data across multiple clouds with capabilities to discover and encrypt data at rest and in motion. It also incorporates a key management service to increase your level of network and endpoint control. Database protection, which includes activity monitoring, vulnerability assessment and risk assessment, supports hybrid and VMware-based deployments.

Network security for cloud

Protect data and workloads from network threats with a core set of network segmentation and network security services. To help you implement a network security solution, IBM specialists provide unbiased guidance and deep knowledge in physical security, network isolation and protection, and secure connectivity. They use a 360-degree approach that includes strategy, assessment, planning, design, implementation and management.

IBM Managed Cloud Network Security services help secure even far-flung or disparate information assets around the clock, often at a fraction of the cost of in-house security resources, while additional services help protect workloads from network threats.

Application security and secure DevOps

Protect your apps throughout their lifecycle. IBM brings together secure engineering, secure deployment operations, availability and business continuity management in a cloud DevOps model. IBM application security solutions are designed to protect your mobile and web-based applications, securing your development team’s first code line from malicious use today and potential attacks in the future.
