IBM announced the opening of a new global security operations center in Bangalore. Adding to the network of IBM global security operations centers, this state-of-the-art facility is constantly staffed with managed security services professionals and members of the X-Force security research and development team to provide real-time analysis and early warning notification of security events to the more than 4,000 managed security services clients worldwide.
The new security operations center represents a multimillion dollar investment by the corporation to continue to expand into significant growth markets including India.
Marisa Viveros, VP of IBM Security Services commented:
As the global threat landscape is constantly changing, clients realize that a new Internet attack can create a life-or-death business situation. In addition, ongoing management of security threats from attacks or for compliance can be a costly proposition in today’s economy.
Security features in the security operation centers themselves include protection for physical security, such as biometric access devices and visitor identity screening, as well as facilities and infrastructure protection, such as redundant network circuits and fire and power protection. In addition, features include network and computer security, such as intrusion detection/prevention systems and audit trailing, and policies, procedures and programs security including disaster recovery and data backup planning.
