Through six global state-of-the-art security operation and response facilities, HCL’s Cyber-security Fusion Centres deliver threat management services to clients around the world
IBM Security and HCL Technologies said on Tuesday that they have collaborated to help unify and streamline threat management for clients via a modernised security operation centre (SOC) platform. For connecting security teams, tools and processes across the ‘threat lifecycle’, HCL’s Cyber-security Fusion Centres will be designed to take advantage of IBM’s Cloud Pak for Security, to help create a unified security operation platform.
For helping organisations with digital transformation, this collaboration builds on HCL and IBM’s recent alliance expansion.
HCL Technologies, in July 2019, had completed the acquisition of select IBM products for security, marketing, commerce, and digital solutions for USD 1.8 billion (over Rs. 12,700 crore).
Through six global state-of-the-art security operation and response facilities, HCL’s Cyber-security Fusion Centres deliver threat management services to clients around the world.
To connect security tools, data and workflows with HCL customers, IBM’s Cloud Pak for Security will serve as the foundation.
Maninder Singh, Corporate Vice President (Cyber-Security Services) at HCL Technologies, said enterprises operating in today’s fast-moving digital world need a cyber-security strategy capable of tackling increasingly sophisticated threats.
“This collaboration enables us to enhance the service that we provide to our clients and to combine the threat detection and response technologies with the development of technological processes and the experience of our professionals across all areas of cyber-security”, said Singh.
Justin Youngblood, Vice President of IBM Security, said many companies today are struggling with the complexity of security operation amidst cloud adoption and fragmented IT infrastructure, which can hamper their ability to discover and respond to threats.
To connect disparate tools, provide insights and orchestrate response across hybrid cloud environments, modern security demands an open platform that leverages AI and automation to help security operation teams.
“With this collaboration, HCL and IBM are modernizing security operation and helping clients accelerate their security outcomes” said Youngblood.
