IBM has announced a new tool dubbed Cloud Pak for multi and hybrid cloud environments. The tech company says that its new product is open source and is developed to gather data from a variety of cloud sources to target critical security insights.
In general, pooling data from various resources creates complexities in cloud platforms such as tracking down the same cyber threat indicators like malevolent IP addresses and malware signatures.
IBM’s Cloud Pak is framed out to bring various environments and sources into a cohesive dashboard which can be either operated in an on-premises data center or a public or private cloud.
As IBM Cloud Pak can easily be integrated with the technology of Red Hat OpenShift, container capabilities can also be utilized.
Cloud Pak can be used with Carbon Black, Tenable, Elastic, BigFix and Splunk when it comes to security.
“As more and more companies are making a transition to the cloud, over 76% of organizations are believed to be using between 2 and 15 hybrid clouds making the transition phase complex. Cloud Pak is said to simplify this transition across hybrid cloud environments with utmost Cybersecurity eliminating security silos if any”, says Mary O Brien, General Manager at IBM Security.
She added that IBM’s focus with Cloud Pak is to lay the way for a more connected security ecosystem which can help hunt down threats, automate detection capabilities which will eventually lead to a quick cyber attack response.
