IBM has announced the expansion of its Cloud Security and Compliance Center, a suite of modernised cloud security and compliance solutions designed to help enterprises mitigate risk and protect data across their hybrid, multicloud environments and workloads.
As clients look for ways to address new threats across the supply chain and manage evolving global regulations, the solution suite helps to support their resiliency, performance, security, and compliance needs while helping to minimise operational costs.
“IBM Cloud has a long history of working with clients in financial services and other highly regulated industries, especially when it comes to helping them to drive innovation while protecting their sensitive data,” said Rohit Badlaney, General Manager, IBM Cloud Product and Industry Platform. “The expansion of the IBM Cloud Security and Compliance Center demonstrates our continued focus on industry-specific capabilities that help address real-world business challenges for our clients.
“For example, clients have the ability to utilise the IBM Cloud Framework for Financial Services, which can help them address evolving rules, laws and regulations surrounding cloud risk. The new capabilities showcase our commitment to supporting clients on their hybrid cloud modernisation journeys, designed for security, compliance, privacy, and trust at the forefront of our product roadmap.”
Research reveals concerns around security and compliance
Research from IBM revealed that more than 77% of global business leaders have adopted a hybrid cloud approach, yet more than half of respondents are still concerned about security and believe compliance in the cloud is too difficult to maintain. To help clients overcome these challenges, the next evolution of the IBM Cloud Security and Compliance Center aims to help clients continuously monitor and manage their security and compliance from a central dashboard across their hybrid and public cloud environments – not just IBM Cloud.
With the new addition of IBM Cloud Security and Compliance Center Data Security Broker, developed in collaboration with Baffle, Inc., the capabilities of the solution suite extend beyond compliance posture management and workload protection capabilities to include application-level security.
“As more enterprises adopt a hybrid, multicloud approach to managing applications of all sorts across SaaS, PaaS, IaaS and on-premises, centrally automated and managed technologies that can implement security and compliance capabilities at scale are required. The IBM Security and Compliance Center addresses this need for holistic protection – which is especially critical for organisations in highly regulated industries that manage sensitive data, such as financial services – regardless of the application within which data may live,” said Frank Dickson, VP of Security & Trust at IDC. “IBM Cloud Security and Compliance Center Data Security Broker will support more scalable data protection, furthering IBM’s commitment to building technology that creates enhanced outcomes.”
