ew Delhi: HCL Technologies and IBM have announced their collaboration to modernize security operations.
IBM Security said it has collaborated with HCL Technologies (HCL) to help unify and streamline threat management for clients via a modernized security operation centre (SOC) platform.
HCL’s Cybersecurity Fusion Centres will leverage IBM’s Cloud Pak for Security, to help create a unified security platform to connect security teams, tools and processes across the threat lifecycle.
This collaboration builds on the recent alliance expansion between HCL Technologies and IBM, which will help organisations with digital transformation.
HCL’s Cybersecurity Fusion Centres offers threat management services to clients globally via six global state-of-the-art security operations and response facilities. IBM’s Cloud Pak for Security will serve as the hub to connect security tools, data and workflows with HCL customers.
Cloud Pak for Security is an open, containerized software platform that allows companies to quickly integrate a wide range of security data, tools and clouds for deeper insights into threats across hybrid cloud environments.
According to HCL Technologies’ Corporate VP of Cyber Security Services Maninder Singh, enterprises operating in today’s fast-moving digital world need a cybersecurity strategy capable of tackling increasingly sophisticated threats. Collaboration is key in the cybersecurity industry to build and implement the solutions to stay one step ahead.
“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 cybersecurity,” said Singh.
“Many companies today are struggling with the complexity of security operations amidst cloud adoption and fragmented IT infrastructure, which can hamper their ability to discover and respond to threats,” said Justin Youngblood, VP – IBM Security.
“Modern security demands an open platform that leverages AI and automation to help security operations teams connect disparate tools, provide insights and orchestrate response across hybrid cloud environments,” added Youngblood.
With this collaboration, HCL Technologies and IBM are modernizing security operations and helping clients accelerate their security outcomes.
