IBM launches Cloud Park to act as a quick response for cyber security threats
IBM on Wednesday launched a new service ‘Cloud Park for security’ which will act as a deterrent to any king of cyber threats. This service will have the ability to connect with any other security tool, cloud or on-premise system without actually transferring data from one place to any other place.
This service is an open-source technology which will have the potential to identify threats and use automation capabilities to respond to any kind of cyber threats. Open Source also gives it the feature to run on any kind of environment. This platform will act as a search and act kind of service. It will first serach and identify the security threat related data from various sources. Based on that data, the platform will generate number of critical security insights from across company’s multicloud environment. Any other additional tool or application can also be integrated with this new platform.
In todays world, cloud has become a necessity and once the cloud program for any company matures, the company’s application, softwares, data and various infrastructure related assets are distributed across various public, private as well as on-premise cloud resources. This fragmented data requires a lot of attention towards data security and protection. Often, a lot of efforts are being spent by security teams to identify the loop holes and work on that. They have to continuously switch between different screens and point products. The new cloud platform will serve as a boon for such security teams.
As per General Manager, IBM Security, Mary O’Brien, this ‘Cloud Park for Security’ will help in establishing a more connected security ecosystems designed for hybrid multicloud world.
