Financing IBM Security

As new innovative technologies evolve, new vulnerabilities emerge. Many IT executives react by deploying new tools to manage each new risk – but that approach is fragmented and not a sustainable security strategy.

IBM offers a deep enterprise security portfolio customized to your needs, reducing cost and complexity to help you protect your most critical data.

Coping with ever-changing threats

One study shows that resolving a security incident in less than 60 seconds can reduce remediation costs by as much as 40 percent1 – which demonstrates how security adds value and delivers a competitive advantage.

IBM’s complete integrated security portfolio includes solutions to stop advanced threats, tools to safeguard cloud and mobile applications, and expert support to fully optimize your security practices, and more.

But you’ll also need a strategic and affordable funding source for your security infrastructure – with maximum flexibility to quickly adapt as your needs change.
