IBM has opened its Security Command Center in Bangalore, India to service the security needs of Indian clients.
The security command center in Bangalore will provide more value to clients through customized SLA-based security services. IBM targets both enterprise and SME clients with its advanced security solutions.
IBM India will offer managed security services – assisting enterprises with expertise and monitoring to anticipate and mitigate threats. It will also offer alerts and advisories based on global events, 24×7 emergency response services for security breaches, hacks and threat assessment, incident response planning and security device management services.
IBM India will add security services such as security analytics, user behavior analysis and anomaly detection to the center. Indian enterprise clients will also benefit from IBM’s global expertise as the center has access to global intelligence, processes and best practices from the Security Command Centre network.
The average organizational cost of data breach is currently Rs 9.73 crore against Rs 6.04 crore in 2013, according to Cost of Data Breach India Study by the IBM Ponemon Institute.
There is a 31 percent likelihood that Indian organizations would experience a data breach of 10,000 or more records over a period of two-years and that malicious or criminal attacks have become the most common root cause for data breach in India.
“IBM’s Security Command Center delivers an integrated system of analytics, real-time defenses with global expertise so that clients can make strategic decisions on how to safeguard their business,” said Sandeep Sinha Roy, business unit executive, IBM Security Services, India.
IBM is helping customers like India’s housing financing company, Dewan Housing Finance (DHFL) to mitigate cyber threat, by aiding clients in either setting up their own on-premise SOCs or availing services and facilities from the IBM Security Command Center.
IBM has also implemented a cloud-delivered, Identity-as-a-service solution in India that automates the user identity and access management process, lowering the overall IT security risk for DHFL.
