IBM launches new cybersecurity services
SAN FRANCISCO — IBM on Monday announced comprehensive new security software products and services for large enterprises. While many don’t realize it, computer security is actually a key part of IBM’s business. If the company were to spin off its security division, it would be the third-largest computer security company in the world after Symantec and Cisco Systems, according to analysis firm IDC in Framingham, Mass. The first new product is the IBM Threat Protection System, a security system that offers one-stop protection against cyberthreats. The second, Critical Data Protection, works to protect what IBM calls a company’s “crown jewels.” These would be such things as files containing information about acquisition and divestiture plants, board deliberations and intellectual property.
