IBM Watson’s Fight Against Cybercrime

Watson for Cyber Security provides new tools for overwhelmed security staff.

Written by Steve Pitcher

In any IT system, how do you know if it’s under attack?

That’s really a loaded question. Systems are always under attack. Day and night, whether you’re aware of it or not, people, machines, and programs are hitting any device that can be reached either on the public Internet or on private networks. Old NAT rules on firewalls can be very effective holes to constantly probe a commonly used port on internal servers. Internal employees with computers infected with many forms of malware are hitting every machine on corporate networks in countless businesses all over the world right now.

Eye on the i World: Adopting Watson-Based Apps - Some Examples

IBM Watson apps available via the cloud are a more viable alternative than many SMBs realize.

Written by John Ghrist

Currently, there are a number of mental drawbacks for executives at IBM i and other enterprises that might benefit from using the IBM Watson platform. One is the misperception that Watson and its associated products primarily benefit only large companies with correspondingly “Big Data” sources. Another is that the traditional model of licensing software for in-house use gets expensive for Watson apps because the Watson platform itself currently runs only on high-end IBM i servers like the 750. A third is that going just by info available on the web can make it hard to get your head around what sort of use could be made of Watson and its associated apps in your enterprise’s specific environment.
