IBM Integrates Tivoli Into Its Global Services
Daily Security Intelligence Aims to Cut Time and Cost Associated with Manual Checks

"Imagine you’re the network manager of a huge corporation tasked with identifying security vulnerabilities across the entire IT organization," says an IBM security spokesperson. "Now consider that security threats to businesses worldwide shift on a monthly, weekly and even daily basis. Consider what’s involved with protecting the very PC you’re working on right now and then multiply the scale and sophistication of security threats to incredible levels."

This type of concern has prompted Big Blue to integrate the daily security intelligence comprising the IBM Global Business Security Index with Tivoli Security Compliance Manager. As a result of the integration, daily updates on security threats worldwide are fed into Tivoli Security Compliance Manager, "enabling organizations to automatically recognize IT systems that are missing key security patches based on the latest advisory information on current and emerging threats," the company states.

In addition to identifying vulnerable operating systems and software prior to costly damage inflicted by security breaches, the integration of SCM and the Global Business Security Index aims to facilitate the creation of consistent and highly advanced security policies in line with current and emerging threats.

 "By automatically scanning servers and desktop systems within the organization and enforcing security policy via a centralized tool, SCM significantly reduces the cost and time associated with performing manual security checks," the company says.

Compiled by 2,700 IBM security professionals and half a million monitored devices from Fortune 500 companies and government entities in 34 countries, the Global Business Security Index serves as a barometer of the daily changing threat landscape, helping organizations with tactical incident response and strategic security planning.

On average, IBM's monitoring service detects 100 million suspected or actual attacks against customers each month., the company reports.
