Too much information security spending still focuses on the prevention of attacks, while not enough has been done to improve information monitoring and response capabilities.
St. Louis (PRWEB) October 14, 2014
Global Velocity Inc., a developer of Information-Centric Security (ICS) solutions, today announced a partnership with IBM that makes Global Velocity’s Securio platform available in the IBM Cloud marketplace. Starting today, IBM clients can protect their sensitive and confidential information stores from theft or loss, and manage compliance and governance issues such as HIPPA, PCI and PII, whether data is stored inside the enterprise or in third-party cloud-based services.
Securio secures data from the inside-out, as opposed to traditional cyber protection methods that protect from the outside-in by hardening points of entry to the data center and network. Since Securio Cloud operates in the cloud to inspect all Internet-bound traffic for sensitive data, it allows employees at businesses and government agencies of all sizes to use their preferred devices and cloud-based services that sit outside the company network.
The IBM Cloud marketplace offers client’s access to more than 100 SaaS applications, IBM's Bluemix™ platform-as-a-service with its suite of composable services, the powerful SoftLayer infrastructure-as-a-service and IBM's rich intellectual capital and deep industry expertise. This single online destination with a suite of cloud services delivers a new buying experience for clients that enables line of business professionals to deploy new services faster, allows developers to build them with greater speed, and offers IT departments more creative, efficient and lower-cost ways to deliver these services.
"Despite the growing number of high profile data breaches and the anxiety they’re causing among organizations, too much information security spending still focuses on the prevention of attacks, while not enough has been done to improve information monitoring and response capabilities,” said Greg Sullivan, CEO, Global Velocity. “Cyber attackers are in the business of information theft for profit and driven primarily by the goal to make money. We need to drive up their cost of doing business without significantly increasing our costs, both in terms of dollars and man-hours, to preventing breaches. The priority must shift to protecting information from the inside-out."
