As companies become increasingly reliant on IT to help drive the business, it’s easy to lose sight of one of technology’s most important functions – to secure and protect corporate information. Yet many companies still rely on aging perimeter security equipment to safeguard their systems. Attackers know this only too well, and are constantly evolving threats so that weaknesses in security can be exploited, systems breached, and data stolen.
Companies today have an opportunity to improve their ability to detect and block security threats and also reduce costs and management headaches. In partnership with AT&T, IBM’s threat management and analysis services provide next-generation, optimized network security that combine management, monitoring, and emergency response functions and can be deployed on premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid model.
