IBM CORPORATION Presence in Internet of Things (IoT) Security Solutions
IBM’s strategic intent lies around its wide range of products & services and large clientele present across the globe. The company has been investing heavily in R&D since past 3 years, to strengthen its product portfolio, specifically in cognitive, cloud, and security. IBM formed a partnership with various companies such as Gemalto, Bluecoat, Check Point security, Zscalar, Trend Micro, Cigital, Cilasoft, Cisco, and ForeScout to form a security intelligence alliance. This security alliance is expected to address the constantly changing threat landscape of its commercial clients in the IoT security market. IBM has also formed a partnership with companies such as Arbor Networks, Bluecat, and Zscalar for offering a variety of solutions to its commercial clients. For instance, the company formed a partnership with Arbor Networks for offering a solution named as Peakflow SP. This solution identifies threat availability, improve traffic engineering, and manage DDoS security issues. IBM’s solution with BlueCat enables the threat detection of malware, blacklisting of bad domain names, and accelerate the threat forensics. IBM Corporation has been instrumental in lining its in-organic growth strategies in the IoT security market. This is evident by the fact that the company acquired Resilient Systems Inc., a US-based provider of security on Incident Response Platform (IRP). This acquisition enabled IBM to strengthen its incident response product portfolio. IBM formed a partnership with Persistent Systems, a leading provider of software and solutions that enabled IBM to pursue a combined IoT strategy and help customers to develop solutions on the Watson IoT Platform using the IoT Continuous Engineering solution. This partnership combined IBM’s Watson IoT platform with Persistent Systems to gain expertise in engineering, analytics, security, and enterprise digital transformation.
