IBM Cloud Pak for Security

Security data is frequently spread across different tools, clouds and on-premise IT environments, creating gaps that allow threats to be missed. More than half of security teams surveyed have stated that they struggle with integration between security analytic tools and cloud infrastructure.

IBM Cloud Pak for Security provides a platform to quickly integrate existing security tools to generate deeper insights into threats across hybrid, multicloud environments, using an infrastructure-independent common operating environment that runs anywhere. It quickly searches for threats, orchestrates actions and automates responses—all while leaving data where it is.

  • Installs easily in any environment--on-premises, private cloud or public cloud

  • Connects to all security data sources for analysis where it resides through the use of open standards and ecosystems

  • Supports IBM and third-party tools to search for threat indicators and behaviors across any cloud or on-premises location

  • Connects security workflows with a unified interface, allowing faster response to security incidents, orchestrating and automating the incident response process
