IBM announced a new cloud-based community platform for cyber security applications. Security Connect is the first security cloud platform built on open federated technologies, with AI at its core, to analyze security data across previously unconnected tools and environments.

An IBM analysis of clients' environments found that on average, cybersecurity teams are using over 80 different security products from 40 different vendors. The research also indicates less than 20 percent of the features in these on-premise tools are used and may not provide the outcomes clients expect due to integration and complexity challenges.

By integrating security data from IBM Security products with an ecosystem of security vendors, clients, and business partners, Security Connect is designed to help improve efficiency and collaboration as teams defend against cybercrime. It will enable users to apply machine learning and AI, including Watson for Cyber Security. Security Connect will extend the set of capabilities from IBM's security products, via robust integration capabilities to connect data, applications and tools from an ecosystem of vendors, made possible by the cloud.

"The growth of cybersecurity technology and data combined with a growing skills shortage is creating an unexpected level of complexity for security teams," said Marc van Zadelhoff, General Manager, IBM Security. "Leveraging the power of the cloud, we can now bring together tools, data and people without expensive customization and integration projects. Data federation through IBM Security Connect helps give security professionals increased security visibility and efficiency without the hassle of migrating data or overly complicated product integrations." IBM Security Connect is anticipated to be available in 1Q 2019.
