IBM Announces Security Forensics Capabilities To Help Protect Critical Data









ARMONK, N.Y., Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced a powerful appliance for helping organizations diagnose and defend their critical data and enterprise networks against sophisticated external attacks and unauthorized insider activities.

Since 2010, the IBM X-Force Trend & Risk Report has been reporting on the alarming rate of how cyber attacks continue to occur. As data breaches continue to impact organizations, the need to reduce detection time and investigate these threats before they can significantly impact the business is critical. Cyber criminals often gain access to a corporate network weeks or months before actual data is compromised. According to the IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence Quarterly to be released next week, in 2013, more than half a billion records of personally identifiable information were leaked through a number of attacks against  strategic targets. By detecting malicious activity earlier, organizations can more quickly stop, or reduce the potential loss of data.

IBM Security QRadar Incident Forensics, a new software product designed as a module for the QRadar Security Intelligence Platform, can help security teams retrace the step-by-step actions of sophisticated cyber criminals.  By adding this forensics capture and search module to its QRadar Security Intelligence platform, IBM can further strengthen its clients' abilities to efficiently investigate security incidents and understand the impact of any suspicious activity. QRadar Incident Forensics provides a record of activity on the network, enabling organizations to retrace suspicious activity, provide alerts to growing concerns, and provide forensics search capabilities.

"Every breach is a race against time. This new forensics module further expands the breadth and depth of IBM's security intelligence capabilities," said Brendan Hannigan, general manager of IBM Security Systems.  "QRadar Incident Forensics further helps IT staff prevent emerging threats and better determine the impact of any intrusion."

IBM Security QRadar Incident Forensics will help any member of an IT security team quickly and efficiently research security incidents or test for conditions associated with an observed attack pattern from an Internet threat intelligence feed such as X-Force.  By using this guidance, security teams can avoid spending valuable time searching through petabytes of network traffic, and potentially discovering nothing of immediate value. With QRadar, security analysts can quickly collect security data related to an incident.
