IBM Threat Protection System

A dynamic, integrated system to disrupt the lifecycle of advanced attacks and prevent loss

Prevent. Detect. Respond.

Today’s attacks are more targeted and complex than ever before. It’s vital to protect your organization, but many traditional security technologies are poorly integrated, difficult to manage, and unable to provide adequate protection. An integrated approach is required that spans the prevention, detection and response to advanced threats through an integrated and continuous system powered by 10 security research and development labs around the world.

The IBM Threat Protection System is designed to disrupt the lifecycle of advanced attacks with a three-pronged approach that helps you prevent, detect and respond to threats.

even the most sophisticated attacks

Even as attacks have become more sophisticated, successfully evading various security protections, prevention remains a necessary element of a successful security strategy.. Organizations require real-time protection that can stop these attacks and disrupt the attack chain to in an effort to prevent compromise.

IBM Threat Protection System breaks critical points in the attack chain with preemptive defenses on both the endpoint and the network. Through its unique behavioral-based approach, IBM Threat Protection System is capable of both detecting and preventing even unknown attacks, including those utilizing advanced malware. Trusteer Apex blocks the installation processes related to malware to shutdown malware at point of infection. IBM Security Network Protection disrupts the malware lifecycle by detecting existing malware on the network and blocking command and control traffic to malware web sites attempting to send further instructions and continue the attack.

stealthy security threats across the entire infrastructure

Targeted attacks are multi-faceted and specifically designed to evade many point technologies attempting to detect and block them. Once they are inside, the only way to find these types of threats is by understanding the behavior of all of the individual attacks components and using analytics to understand their relationship.

Leveraging the IBM QRadar Security Intelligence platform, the IBM Threat Protection System is able to detect threats other technologies miss by performing advanced analytics and anomaly detection such as traffic spikes on off hours or repeated login attempts, all across a wide range of data and network traffic.

continuously to security incidents

Today it is not a matter of if an organization will be breached, but a question of when and how much they can limit the breach impact and contain their exposure. This means having the ability to respond extremely quickly once an initial incident has been detected. The ability to understand the complete attack and all of its related components is critical in order to know the extent of the breach and potentially exposed sensitive data.

The IBM Threat Protection System provides the ability to quickly investigate breaches, and retrace attack activity to learn from findings and remediate weaknesses. Understanding the magnitude and nature of a security breach can be challenging, especially with limited resources or a lack of in-house forensics expertise. For further assistance, IBM Emergency Response Services provide immediate guidance and support in the event of a security incident.
