Alibaba Cloud, a cloud computing company and a subsidiary of the Alibaba Group will soon be offering security solutions to businesses in partnership with IBM, an American technology company.
The security solution integrates features of IBM’s security products, the QRadar SIEM and QRadar SOAR, into Alibaba Cloud’s security capabilities. The co-developed solution aims to mitigate mounting cybersecurity risks while creating a secure, stable, and protected cloud environment for clients during their digital transformation journey.
Businesses will have real-time reporting and centralized visibility into their cloud environment to detect threats such as ransomware, insider threats, and cloud attacks.
“To help our customers best reap the benefits of digital transformation, we need to help them create a well-protected environment so they can focus on their products and business strategies,” said Edward Cai, chief commercial officer, Alibaba Cloud Intelligence.
APAC is the most attacked region
Citing IBM data, hijacking attempts against companies grew two-fold in 2022 compared to the previous year. Asia Pacific is the most-attacked region accounting for 31% of all incidents.
“With a rich portfolio of security services and products, and empowered by our security experts worldwide, IBM is trusted by thousands of organizations as their partner to assess, strategize, implement, and manage security transformations,” said Charles Kiang, GM of IBM Technology Sales, APAC.
The security solution extends visibility to integrated cloud platforms by collecting, normalizing, and analyzing events. The solution can help enterprises detect potential threats and accelerate and orchestrate their response to any abnormalities rapidly by automating actions with intelligence.
The solution is designed to help customers, particularly those in the internet, finance, retail, and manufacturing industries, to meet their respective security requirements and obligations.
