Continuing with its long trend of infusing smart technology to improve its cloud security portfolio, IBM has developed a new system that aims at providing more protection to user data and applications based in the cloud.
According to the reports, about two hundred engineers at IBM have built the stack, dubbed as the Dynamic Cloud Security portfolio, for deployements at cloud and on-premise.
IBM is batting this product for the corporations that are opting for hybrid cloud deployments that are increasingly becoming popular or at least getting generally accepted cloud model.
Cloud computing is becoming very common day-by-day as more and more companies are dumping their sensitive data into the cloud in order to avail its fast, economical and nimble accessibility. But security of the data always remains a big concern.
An IBM survey, released on Wednesday, has made a glaring exposure about the cloud computing.
According to the survey, 44 percent of the corporate security leaders who have participated in the study were found convinced with a major security breach that is bound to happen any time.
“We asked them ‘What’s the number one, big security issue that’s going to happen?’ and that’s what they honed in on,” said Marc van Zadelhoff, vice president of IBM Security System’s strategy and product management.
IBM released details of the survey during the announcement of its new cloud security platform ‘IBM Dynamic Cloud Security Portfolio’, which is scheduled to arrive this quarter.
With the new service, IBM is eyeing at larger companies in order to boost its revenue generation.
The new cloud portfolio offers improvised security tools that will provide a proper authentication of the access attempts to a company’s system, improve the visibility of all the happenings on in the network and control data of the companies.
van Zadelhoff said that the new IBM security system is designed in such a way that it could “specifically manage today’s new cloud-based workloads, from the cloud.”
