IBM presents open platform for cyber security applications

IBM announced a cloud-based community platform for cyber security applications. IBM Security Connect is built on open federated technologies, with AI at its core, to analyze security data across previously unconnected tools and environments.
IBM Security Connect will enable users to apply machine learning and AI, including Watson for Cyber Security, for analysis to help them identify threats or risks and improve the efficacy and efficiency of threat detection and response.

“Data federation through IBM Security Connect helps give security professionals increased security visibility and efficiency without the hassle of migrating data or overly complicated product integrations,” Marc van Zadelhoff, general manager, IBM Security, said.

IBM Security Connect will become the home of IBM’s current Security App Exchange and all IBM Security applications built on a platform powered by IBM Cloud, but compatible with other cloud providers.

IBM Security will create new open standards in areas such as the sharing of response playbooks and analytics patterns and will actively invest in developing new open source projects that align with these efforts.

IBM Security Connect’s initial set of applications and services will allow users to connect to multiple security products or data repositories to automatically federate data for the purpose of prioritizing and responding to threats.

This revolutionary approach of federating data enables clients to leave their data where it is, as opposed to building costly data lakes, which can complicate or outright prevent security data analysis.

IBM Security Connect will be an integral part of IBM Security Services offerings both as a consumer and a contributor of new innovation; including advancements in voice-enabled AI, machine learning for security threat scoring, global threat analytics, orchestration playbooks and mobile-enabled MSS applications.

Cisco, Capgemini, Carbon Black, Check Point, CrowdStrike, EY, ForeScout, Forcepoint, Fortinet, McAfee, Qualys, Smarttech, Symantec, Tenable, Trend Micro, and VMware have committed to integrating with IBM Security Connect to help provide improved data sharing across security vendors for joint clients.

Many of these vendors will contribute to building integrated applications on IBM Security Connect.
