The need for smarter security

The IT security landscape is growing increasingly complex. As threats become more sophisticated, and new technologies emerge, organizations must get smarter about IT security. Safeguarding the enterprise from dangerous events and attacks—without sacrificing innovation and growth—is essential. It requires advanced analytics, expert analysis, and swift remediation. At IBM, we call this security intelligence. It comes standard with all our Managed Security Services and it goes far beyond the normal limits of IT security by automatically monitoring, analyzing, and prioritizing your risk landscape, and offering actionable recommendations in real-time. Organizations who have adopted a security intelligence service are meeting today’s security challenges and seeing real results.

Our proprietary analytics and correlation tools provide you with the real-time, in-depth security intelligence that’s most relevant to your organization, allowing you to make informed, proactive decisions around your security posture. With Managed Security Services you get security intelligence that includes:

  • Multi-vendor event correlation

    IBM Managed Security Services give you greater visibility into your entire security environment by correlating data sets from across your infrastructure

  • Global monitoring

    Using its base of nearly 4,000 customers, IBM can profile attackers by tracking the organizations they’ve been in communication with, the industries they’re targeting, and the techniques they’re using

  • Threat prioritization

    Utilizing this comprehensive profile data, IBM can then notify customers with similar vulnerabilities and a likelihood of attack, helping them prioritize their response

  • Sophisticated intelligence reporting

    The IP Intelligence Report provides in-depth analysis on the threats posed, vulnerabilities that exist, and remediation activities under way—saving your organization time and resources

  • Real-time analysis

    IBM Managed Security Services feed firewall logs, intrusion detection and prevention events, operating system and application events, and vulnerability scan results into the IBM X-FORCE Protection System, fueling analysis that populates real-time and on demand dashboards

  • Automated Intelligence

    The enhanced Automated Intelligence (AI) correlation engine enables IBM to chain together alerts from multiple service offerings, helping to reduce the rate of false positives and streamline the identification of advanced threats that target individual customers or a broad spectrum of customers
