Partners and Integrations - IBM Security Technology Alliance Program (TAP)

IBM Security
Technical Alliance Program (TAP)

Better Together

When we say open ecosystem, we mean it. We do not restrict partners with NDAs, and our documentation, APIs, and SDKs are online and freely available to all vendors to use to integrate with our security products. A team of alliance managers and technical enablement specialists are here to guide vendors through the process and get up and running as quickly as possible.

Product Integration

We work with technology partners in any combination of the models below:

Partner Delivered

Integrations built within the partner product that utilize our published products APIs, including MaaS360, Verify (IAM). These integrations have minimal IBM validation, but are delivered and supported by the ISV.

Partner Developed

Independant Software Vendor (ISV) uses IBM SDK(s) to build an integration. Integration is validated by IBM Quality Assurance teams, and made generally available via the IBM Security AppExchange for joint customers to download.

IBM Embedded

IBM developed integrations embedded within IBM products. ISV partner provides technical assistance to IBM Development, Integrations are delivered and supported by IBM..
