Cloud Pak for Security
IBM Cloud Pak for Security can be easily installed in any environment including on-premises, private cloud and public cloud. The platform itself is made up of containerized software pre-integrated with Red Hat OpenShift.
Through the OASIS Open Cybersecurity Alliance, IBM has also forged partnerships with dozens of other companies to help promote interoperability and to reduce vendor lock-in across the security community by using co-developed open source technologies.
By using the Cloud Pak for Security's Data Explorer application, security analysts can streamline their hunt for threats across security tools and clouds. Before its release, security teams had to manually search for the same threat indicators within each individual environment.
General manager of IBM Security, Mary O'Brien explained how Cloud Pak for Security is laying the foundation for a more connected security ecosystem in a press release announcing its launch, saying:
"As businesses move mission-critical workloads to hybrid multi-cloud environments, security data is spread across different tools, clouds and IT infrastructure. This can create gaps that allow threats to be missed, leading security teams to build and maintain costly, complex integrations and manual response plans. With Cloud Pak for Security, we're helping to lay the foundation for a more connected security ecosystem designed for the hybrid, multi-cloud world."
