IBM Introduces SaaS Version of IBM Cloud Pak for Security

IBM (NYSE: IBM) Security announced a new Software as a Service version of IBM Cloud Pak for Security.  It is designed to simply how organizations utilize a zero trust architecture across the enterprise.  The company reported an alliance partnership with leading cloud and net security provider, Zscaler and new blueprints for common zero trust use cases.  A zero trust framework for security professions help modernize their overall security programs and helps them adapt to risks that emerge from the changing business environment.  “With a mobile workforce and data residing everywhere, the Internet has become our primary network,” said Mauricio Guerra, CISO for The Dow Chemical Company who will participate in IBM Think on May 11. “Embracing a zero trust architecture enables us to add new capabilities and strengthen security. Working with partners like IBM Security and Zscaler can help us provide users with secure remote access to all of our locations, as well as access to applications wherever and however they are hosted.”

IBM believes that an open approach is a necessity in addressing the fragmentation and complexity challenges that security teams face today as they adopt a zero trust strategy.  “Working from anywhere, combined with enterprises’ move to SaaS and the cloud, has effectively rendered the perimeter security model obsolete and traditional security defenses ineffective,” said Jay Chaudhry, Chairman, CEO and Founder of Zscaler. “The only way to truly secure today’s digital businesses is to adopt a zero trust security model where validated user identity is combined with business policies for direct access to authorized applications and resources. Our alliance partnership with IBM Security, as part of the Zscaler Zero Trust Ecosystem, is helping organizations and their employees fully embrace working from anywhere while protecting enterprise data.”
