Cyber Security Intelligence

2016 Cyber Security Intelligence Index

The annual IBM X-Force Research Cyber Security Intelligence Index offers a high-level overview of the major security threats to our clients’ businesses worldwide over the past year, and is complemented by other threat intelligence and research publications from IBM X-Force. In this report we will discuss how the threat landscape is changing from year to year, as IBM works with companies to help them better detect network security threats and attackers, and the key factors enabling them.

What are your security pain points?

The sophistication of attacks is outpacing my organization’s defenses

Don’t settle for a reactive defense strategy – make prevention a priority

Are your traditional methods of protection not keeping pace with the sophistication of cyber threats?

A reactive, signature-based defense strategy isn’t enough to ward off these evolving attacks.

You need advanced threat protection that can stop the behavior, which stops the attack. Rather than rely on a signature for a specific exploit, IBM Threat Protection System stops suspected malicious behavior to stop advanced threats.


Threat Protect Attacks

I've got too many security alerts and not enough resources to act on them

Learn how to prioritize the critical alerts to address them immediately.

Simply getting more alerts isn’t the answer. Alert overload can make it hard to know what to prioritize and take action on – especially with limited security resources. Standard static, alert-based systems lack the ability to help determine which cyber threats require immediate attention.

IBM Threat Protection System combines on-demand analytics and automated intelligence to enable prioritization of alerts so you can take action right away.


Threat Protect Alerts

I spend more time researching threats than responding to them

Reduce the time to conduct a forensics investigation from days to hours

Whether you need to prepare against a cyber threat, conduct forensics on a suspected breach or you’ve already been attacked, we can help.

IBM’s Threat Protection System can help you retrace attacks step-by-step, in hours instead of days, to pinpoint where the attack came from and how it got there. And for around-the-clock breach support, IBM Emergency Response Service can help you recover from attacks, remediate vulnerabilities, and improve security planning, policies and procedures.

I have too many security products that don't work well together

Get integrated protection, not more siloed security point products

IBM has built an enterprise-level “immune system” to battle today’s IT security threats with the IBM Threat Protection System. Its adaptive security architecture provides the integration you need to better prevent, detect, and respond to advanced threats, connect product silos and accelerate breach response with prioritized threat intelligence and insights.

IBM Threat Protection System integrates with 450 security tools from over 100 vendors – acting as connective tissue for today’s disjointed cybersecurity infrastructure.

IBM Threat Protection System helps you stay ahead of the threat

IBM Threat Protection System (TPS) offers a holistic security approach, using behavioral analytics and security intelligence, to proactively prevent, detect and respond to advanced cyber attacks.

Threat Protection

Prevent sophisticated attacks

IBM Threat Protection System is built on an adaptive architecture that evolves with the changing environment and endpoint security threats your business faces. It integrates with 450 security tools from over 100 vendors, acting as connective tissue for today’s disjointed cybersecurity infrastructure.

IBM Threat Protection System breaks critical points in the attack chain with ahead of the threat 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.

How can I help prevent attacks in my enterprise?

Threat Detects

Detect stealthy threats

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 cyber threats is to understand the behavior of the individual attack components and use analytics to understand their relationships.

Leveraging the IBM QRadar Security Intelligence platform, the IBM Threat Protection System is able to detect IT security threats, network security threats, cyber 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.

How can I better detect attacks in my enterprise?

Threat Responds

Respond continuously

Today it is not a matter of if an organization will be attacked, but a question of when and how much they can limit the impact and contain their exposure. This means having the ability to respond quickly once the initial incident has been detected.

IBM Security QRadar Incident Forensics provides the ability to quickly investigate breaches and retrace attack activity to learn from findings and remediate weaknesses. IBM BigFix offers continuous endpoint compliance, network security protection and automatic quarantine for non-compliant endpoints to minimize disruption ahead of any threat. For further assistance, IBM Emergency Response Services provide immediate guidance and support in the event of a security incident or a cyber attack.

How can I improve our response to security incidents?

Threat Connects

Connect Silos

IBM Threat Protection System is built on an adaptive architecture that evolves with the changing environment and endpoint security threats your business faces. It integrates with 450 security tools from over 100 vendors, acting as connective tissue for today’s disjointed cybersecurity infrastructure.

Leverage real-time threat intelligence across your security systems through IBM® X-Force® Exchange, a cloud-based threat intelligence sharing platform enabling users to rapidly research the latest global security threats, aggregate actionable intelligence and collaborate with peers.

IBM Threat Protection System is a dynamic, integrated system to disrupt the lifecycle of advanced attacks and prevent loss


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.
