IBM plans to create Cloud Security awareness among Startups


International Business Machines Corporation, shortly known as IBM is all set to create cloud security awareness among small and medium businesses through its different co-innovation activities. 
Initially, the IT major wants to implement its strategy in India and then spread its objective to other countries.

Remember, IBM has already offered such awareness initiatives to startups in Silicon Valley and has spread them across California.
Nearly, 1200 Indian Startups will gain traction from the expertise of IBM Cognitive Cloud Platform. This will ensure faster adoption of cybersecurity solutions among startups since a majority of them are “born in the cloud”

The New York-based company says that most of the startups and technology-enabled SMBs these days will require the end to end data security solutions, as they are developing applications on the cloud right from the ‘day one’. So, IBM wants to serve as a technology partner to all these budding companies to help them enhance their security levels when it comes to cloud-based data and applications.

Seema Kumar, Leader and Developer, IBM Ecosystem and Startups, says that IBM will focus on creating more cognizance at multi-levels of its start-up collaboration. She said that the collaboration will be provided to startups both at an early stage and with the ones which would like to enhance security after building their products.

As India is slowly becoming a technological hub, it is becoming a focal point to cyber crooks. So, for companies for whom data becomes lifeblood, protecting their digital assets is becoming ambitious.

Since Cloud acts as a central repository to host data and applications it offers a provision of cutting down operational costs. But when it comes to security, not many companies are trusting the said platform. Here’s where IBM wants to offer a kind of trustworthiness to all such companies by offering advanced security for small firms via its cloud platform.
