IBM brings its 'smart' tactics to cloud security portfolio

Dubbed as the Dynamic Cloud Security portfolio, 200 IBM engineers have been building the Dynamic Cloud Security portfolio for cloud and on-premise deployments.

Infusing smart technology is becoming a trademark quality to IBM's enterprise cloud and software portfolio. Continuing along with that trend is Big Blue's new intelligent security portfolio.

Two hundred IBM engineers have been building the stack — dubbed the Dynamic Cloud Security portfolio — for cloud and on-premise deployments.

Constructed for protecting user data and apps based in the cloud, IBM is really gearing this product toward corporations opting for hybrid cloud deployments, which is increasingly becoming the de facto (or at least generally accepted) cloud model.

The portfolio's assets which range from better visualization options to the IBM QRadar security analytics platform are supposed to resolve gaps that could fall between on-premise and cloud-based apps as well as offering a bridge to Software-as-a-Service products and mobile devices.

IBM emphasized these links extend to the public cloud. QRadar, for example, can link up with IBM'sSoftLayer cloud or external public cloud services, such as Amazon Web Services.

The Dynamic Cloud Security portfolio is scheduled to be available this quarter.

The intelligent security suite debut follows last week's unveiling of a new enterprise intelligence analytics solution cultivated to pool massive amounts of data in order to combat cybercrime.

The IBM i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis (EIA) service consists of high-speed analysis and criminal investigation software promising to "find non-obvious relationships masked within hundreds of terabytes of data and trillions of objects in just seconds."
