Today, critical business information is increasingly vulnerable to cyber attacks that are designed to cripple your business or permanently destroy your IT systems.

With sophisticated tools and resources at their disposal, cyber attackers may have more information about your defense than you have about their attack capability. The alarming number of breaches at organizations thought to have impregnable defenses is making security experts believe that breaches are an inevitable reality. You need a unified cyber resilience lifecycle approach to help you identify and prioritize critical assets, determine risk and establish resilient defense and recovery capabilities.

Global business operations recovery from attack in three days

A leading transport company suffered a malware attack that affected a variety of assets, including core applications and, within 24 hours, disrupted its business operations globally.

IBM restored 95 percent of business functionality, 100 percent of Linux/AIX server estate, 84 percent of production Windows servers and 180+ applications within three days.

IBM Cyber Resilience Lifecycle Program is a dynamic and integrated platform that combines cybersecurity with backup and recovery methods to help you protect against, detect and recover from cyber attacks while minimizing the impact on your business.

PREPARE a cyber resilience plan

Assess cyber resilience readiness, process and posture, and orchestrate and automate recovery workflow.

PROTECT against attacks by discovering vulnerabilities before they are exploited

Disrupt malware and exploits, discover and patch systems, automatically fix vulnerabilities and adopt a Zero Trust network policy.

DETECT unknown threats with advanced analytics

See attacks across the enterprise, investigate active threats hiding inside the enterprise and detect attacks coming from outside the enterprise.

RESPOND to cyber outbreaks

Engage cyber incident responders leveraging threat intelligence, remediate attack damage by restoring systems and closing vulnerabilities, and use network resources to defend against outside threats.

RECOVER access to critical data and applications

Rebuild mission-critical business applications; restore data from backup; prioritize network resources to speed recovery.
