IBM (NYSE IBM) reported new and enhanced services to help organizations manage their cloud security strategy, controls and policies across hybrid cloud environments. Many enterprises today are utilizing a mix of cloud and on premises resources to achieve balance, security and cost savings for their business.
“Cloud security can appear daunting, with defenders facing an expansive attack surface, shared responsibility models and rapidly evolving cloud platforms and tools,” said Vikram Chhabra, Global Director, Offering Management and Strategy, IBM Security Services. “We cannot assume that legacy approaches for security will work in this new operating model – instead, security should be modernized specifically for the hybrid cloud era, with a strategy based on zero trust principles that bring together context, collaboration and visibility across any cloud environment.”
IBM Security Services for Cloud provide an open & automated approach to simplify hybrid cloud security. The new and enhanced services include cloud native security services, cloud security posture management, container security and cloud security strategy.
This builds off of IBM’s existing capabilities and expertise to support clients’ cloud security journeys.
