IBM Unveils New Software To Help Organizations Identify And Predict Security Risk

ARMONK, N.Y., July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced an integrated security intelligence solution that helps organizations identify key vulnerabilities in real-time, while reducing total cost of security operations.

IBM QRadar Vulnerability Manager gives security officers a prioritized view across their entire network, helping them quickly strengthen and fortify their defenses. By aggregating vulnerability information into a single view, security teams can see the results from multiple network, endpoint, database or application scanners where it can be quickly reviewed and managed.

More than 70,000[1] security vulnerabilities exist today, with more than a dozen more being reported every day[2]. The rapid expansion of social, mobile and cloud computing can further increase the number of potential vulnerabilities, expanding the threat landscape.

Part of the IBM Security Intelligence Platform, QRadar Vulnerability Manager (QVM) combs through security holes to help close them to potential exploits, excluding those hidden behind firewalls, associated with inactive applications or otherwise unreachable from external attacks. By simply activating a license key, this new software can automatically scan the network and perform the analysis, helping security teams more effectively direct their limited staff resources. 

"Security Intelligence is about putting all the available data into context, and making it useful for each client's unique security needs," said Brendan Hannigan, General Manager, IBM, Security Systems Division. "We have relentlessly expanded QRadar's capabilities, and tight integration of vulnerability management is the next natural extension."

Designed to Address Gaps in Vulnerability Management Solutions

IBM QRadar Vulnerability Manager helps clients reduce the remediation and mitigation burden by aggregating vulnerability information into a single risk-based view where it can be quickly prioritized. Security teams can see the results from multiple network, endpoint, database or application scanners alongside the latest X-Force Threat Intelligence alerts and incident reports from the National Vulnerability Database. The new offering also includes its own embedded, PCI-certified scanner which can be scheduled to run periodically or triggered based on network events.
