IBM (NYSE:IBM) today announced the official opening of a new global security operations center in Bangalore, India.
The new security center, staffed with managed security services professionals and members of the X-Force security research and development team, will help support IBM’s more than 4,000 managed security services clients worldwide.
The new security operations center represents a significant investment by IBM to continue to expand into significant growth markets including India. IBM operates eight other global security operations centers in Atlanta, Detroit, Boulder, Toronto, Brussels, Tokyo, Brisbane, and Hortolandia, Brazil.
The Bangalore security operations center will leverage the IBM X-Force Protection System to assist analysts with the aggregation, correlation, analysis and prioritization of security logs and events.
Each day, IBM analyzes more than 8 billion security events from devices located in more than 140 countries. This level of visibility provides IBM with a truly global view of the security landscape and assists IBM security analysts with the ability to identify emerging threats quickly and track trends across geographies, industries and systems.
The global security operations centers are part of the IBM security strategy to provide solutions to assist organizations in building a strong security posture that helps manage risk across the enterprise, improve service and reduce costs. As clients strive to achieve compliance and other information technology goals without adding resources, the IBM infrastructure, experience and expertise, coupled with the ability to manage multiple products from various security vendors, can help maximize existing security investments.
