Conventional MDM, EMM and UEM solutions lack the ability to discover and prioritize the areas that have the most meaningful impact on your organization. Instead, they rely on YOU and your team to self-discover risks and opportunities related to your endpoints, their users, apps, content and data.

Cognitive computing is about augmenting our traditional computing systems with an understanding of formerly opaque data such as natural human language, imagery, etc. In this video Jeb Linton, Chief Security Architect at IBM Watson Group, describes how marrying the worlds of structured and semi-structured machine data to the world of natural language provides a more complete picture of the security landscape.

IBM Security has launched a new team of global experts - IBM X-Force IRIS, to help clients prepare for and rapidly respond to security threats. Our seasoned experts and consultants deliver threat intelligence services, incident preparedness planning and onsite response services to help organizations stay ahead of the threat.

IBM X-Force Command Centers represent a quantum leap in IBM Security’s core capabilities and are built upon the latest era of cognitive security solutions and the industries top talent. By combining leading technology, industry proven processes, and the support of skilled security experts, IBM X-Force Command Centers help clients stay ahead of the most advanced threats.

With our move to X-Force Command Center we expand traditional security operation center (SOC) functions and to include threat management, threat hunting, SIEM services, cognitive and even cyber range functionality.

IBM X-Force Command Center introduces the first commercial cyber range built in a state-of-the-art facility that immerses clients/potential clients in a simulated SOC using tactics and protocols designed to anticipate and defend against current and future cyber threats. It will provide critical cyber security-related crisis leadership skills in a safe “live fire” environment where participants can experience the effects of live malware, DDoS, and other traditional and more advanced attacks. The participants will operate real tools, investigate active infections, and respond to internal and external cyber security events.

This cyber simulator provides clients with unique hands-on experience to understand the dynamics of a cyber attack. Not only does our cyber range emulate a training environment but also explores actual IP addresses of sites to uncover malware and mimics any industry to identify specific malware prone to attack so our centers can help defend against it. It empowers organizations to understand potential security tools and services needed, improves an organization’s skills regarding incident response and crisis management, and enhances collaboration and communication when responding to an attack.

X-Force Command Center, IBM Security's global array of Security Operations Centers, protect 4,500 clients across 133 countries.
X-Force Command Centers serve as IBM Security’s global threat monitoring and intelligence centers, built with cognitive in mind. Acting as a single global entity, the command centers provide 24/7/365 security monitoring for IBM’s Managed Security Services clients. X-Force Command Centers currently handle over 20 billion security events per day, with the capability to scale to over 35 billion+ security events daily (or 1 TRILLION events each month.)
The 24x7 “watch floor” within the SOC incorporates state-of-the-art technology, programs, processes and facilities that increase collaboration and capacity to help our analysts work smarter.
Our analysts have access to tools like Watson for Cyber Security arming them with the ability to quickly synthesize large amounts of data and come to evidenced based recommendations and conclusions quickly for our clients.
Using the IBM X-Force Intelligence, the SOCs bring in 200 thousand new pieces of threat intelligence daily by leveraging insights from analysis of over 100 million web pages and images, collect data from 270 million endpoints, and pull in the expansive library of threat research from IBM’s X-Force Threat Intelligence team.

Are you taking the right steps to protect your organization from insider threats? IBM X-Force data shows that 60% of all attacks involved insiders in 2015, and 44.5% involved malicious, trusted users. Keeping your organization safe starts with your people – knowing who they are, and being able to predict or spot malicious behaviors.

    MC Press Magazine 2017 06 read the June issueMagazines or books? Hard copy or digital? What and how do you prefer to read?

    It’s summer! It’s the time for taking vacations, putting meat on the grill, and eating fresh peaches.

    It’s also time to relax with your favorite reading material while you’re hanging out at the pool, lake, or beach. Back in the day, you’d grab your magazines and/or books and stuff them into your tote bag along with your towel, a hat, your beverage of choice, and some snacks. But these days, instead of hard copy, you’re more likely stuffing a laptop, tablet, or smartphone into your bag because that’s where your reading material resides.

    Your digitial edition of MC Press Magazine is here so enjoy the read!

    mc press magazine click to read the 2017 08 issue“Analysis” is arguably the tech buzzword of the day for businesses.

    Summer’s over. Everyone who is still in school has gone back to focusing on their studies. If you have kids in college, they may be taking some analytics classes—maybe topics about data mining, predictive modeling, data visualization, or business statistics.

    A quick search of available college classes turned up course titles such as Machine Learning and Optimization in Analytics, Social Network Analytics, Web Analytics, Data Management and Visualization in Analytics, and Computational Techniques for Large Scale Data Analysis.

    Does any of this sound familiar to you?

    If you’re racking your brain to think back to your own college days, you’re trying too hard. What I’m talking about should come up easily in recent memory. Think “Watson.”

    All of those course titles represent things a Watson app or service can do for you. You don’t have to spend a whole semester learning how to do it yourself.

    Enjoy the read.

  • MC Press Magazine Sept 2017 Issue

    mc press magazine click to read the 2017 09 issueLots of people love this time of year…for one reason or another.

    It’s autumn! Although I now live in the Southwest, I have nostalgic memories of the Northeast autumns of my youth. There is nothing (to me) as breathtakingly amazing as the beauty of trees’ leaves turning crimson, gold, and orange.

    Many people enjoy the spectacle of autumn foliage, but many, many more get excited about this season for a completely different reason: It’s football season.

    Let’s watch a fantasy football game.

    The MC Presstige is suited up, but instead of being on the gridiron, this all-star team is playing between the front and back covers of MC Press Magazine.

    The Presstige wins the toss. Game on!

  • MC Press Magazine Oct 2017 Issue

    mc press magazine click to read the 2017 10 issueGhosts and witches—they’re kid stuff. But there really are other things to be afraid of.

    By Victoria Mack

    This being October, Steve Pitcher has a bit of a Halloween scare for you. But this goblin isn’t a fantasy. It’s real. IBM has announced end of support for the exceptionally popular POWER7 machines. Will IBM offer extended hardware maintenance? Who knows? It hasn’t happened yet. Read Steve’s article to see his perceptions of what some may consider a truly horrifying announcement.

    If news of the Equifax breach left you quivering with fear, you’re not alone. Many, many people are wondering if they were affected. More importantly, many more are wondering how such a thing could have happened. News sources reported that a database hack was conducted on a “legacy” environment. Hmmm…legacy. You’ve heard that word used to describe the IBM i. Could it have been an IBM i that was hacked? Maybe. Carol Woodbury comments on that possibility and discusses the multiple layers of defense that are available to IBM i sys admins to ensure security breaches don’t happen to their company.

    But there’s more good news than bad news in this issue of MC Press Magazine.
