Enterprise cloud adoption is an agile approach to security

Cognitive security helps address the current skills gap, accelerate responses and reduce the cost and complexity of security tools. SaaS security from IBM® delivers those tools at a lower cost of entry and a faster time to value.

Demand on your internal resources is also reduced as the vendor provides APIs and performs much of the work, often dropping the time to a working solution months in the traditional model to weeks, days or hours with the SaaS model.

Even as you scale, you have a clear idea of what your costs will be. You pay for what you need, when you need it. IBM handles all of the upgrades and is responsible for uptime and security of your data across the globe.

  • Reduced time to value: As the solutions are already installed and configured, users can easily provision capabilities, allowing for rapid prototyping and evaluations.
  • Reduced capital expenditure: Security services from the cloud eliminate a high level of up-front costs - including servers, software licenses or appliances.
  • Reduced administrative burden: With cloud-based security services, the majority of administration is carried out by the service provider, reducing costs and resource time.
