It’s been over a year now since IBM acquired Q1 Labs and formed the new Security Systems organization. Throughout the year we’ve delivered important new announcements and capabilities across our entire security framework of people, data, applications, infrastructure, threat research and security intelligence. Some of these new capabilities have been advancements in existing product lines (application security for mobile devices, privileged identity management, network application control, etc) and some of them have been centered around integrating different pieces of the portfolio to make our products more intelligent than ever before (bringing things like X-Force threat intelligence and identity context into our security intelligence platform).
We’re excited to talk with you more about the new capabilities we’ve brought to market, but also provide a meaningful look into what we’re going to be focusing on in 2013. All of our customers have been asking about cloud, mobile, new compliance initiatives, the challenge and opportunity of Big Data as well as how to approach the ever increasing sophistication of advanced attackers. It’s our goal to help you take our different capabilities to solve these difficult issues in a more integrated, intelligent way than ever before.
This year IBM Security will have its most compelling agenda to date and we’re excited to meet with you. Here are some of the highlights that you can look forward to at Pulse Protect this year.
