Welcome to the new era of security

At IBM Security, we’re training a new generation of systems to understand, reason and learn about constantly evolving security threats. We’re beginning to build security instincts and expertise into new defenses that analyze research reports, web text and threat data – just like security professionals do every day – but with unprecedented speed and scale.

Enter cognitive security. Built upon security intelligence, cognitive solutions generate not just answers, but hypotheses, evidence-based reasoning and recommendations for improved decision making in real time. As a result, cognitive security will help address the current skills gap, accelerate responses and help reduce the cost and complexity of dealing with cybercrime.

Human, meet Cognitive Security

Cognitive systems shine a light into data that has been dark to organizational defenses until now — uncovering new insights, patterns and security context never before seen. Think about the 75,000+ documented software vulnerabilities, 10,000+ security research papers published each year and 60,000+ security blogs published each month. What’s possible now is the ability to quickly interpret this data — created by humans for humans — and integrate it with structured data from countless sources and locations.

We now have the means to mine both structured and unstructured data, and continuously extract features and patterns to provide context in real time. The result: Security analysts, armed with this collective knowledge and instinct, will be able to respond to threats with greater confidence and speed.

Watson for Cyber Security: Revolutionizing how security analysts will work

Scale your expertise to make faster and more accurate security decisions

Understand

The cognitive security edge

analyst

Cognitive security uses data mining, machine learning, natural language processing and human-computer interaction to mimic the way the human brain functions and learns. It gets stronger over time, learning with each interaction and getting better at proactively stopping threats.

Cognitive systems bring the ability to spot anomalies and flawed logic, and provide evidence-based reasoning — enabling analysts to weigh alternative outcomes and improve decision making. Analysts will call on cognitive systems to augment or even automate their understanding of a threat — at a depth, and with speed and scale, like never before.
