IBM Cloud Paks Security Assistance for Multicloud Users

By: Jay BretzmannProgram Director, Security Products


This IDC Market Note discusses a new hybrid, multicloud security tool — STIX-Shifter.

Highly fragmented markets support a lot of unique solutions, and a few other IT disciplines have seen such technology sprawl as security. As legacy systems struggle with lift-n-shift cloud migrations, new point security solutions are developed on both sides (on-premises and in cloud), providing an immediate fix to the incompatibility or vulnerability at hand. Most of them produce data in the form of logs, flows, or packet captures, providing a complex trail of activity that requires modern-day Kit Carson types to follow. IBM's Cloud Pak for Security is at least a compass and maybe a map for discovering and following the tracks of cyberthieves' activities.

Like syslog before it, widespread agreement on a stratified system/security data collection and reporting format will simply improve the working quality of life for IT managers and security teams.
