IBM expands cloud security & compliance center to tackle threats

IBM has announced the expansion of its IBM Cloud Security and Compliance Center, introducing a suite of advanced cloud security and compliance solutions tailored to assist enterprises in mitigating risks and safeguarding data across their hybrid and multi-cloud environments. As global business leaders increasingly adopt hybrid cloud strategies, IBM aims to address concerns surrounding security and compliance complexities within cloud environments.

“The expansion of the IBM Cloud Security and Compliance Center demonstrates our continued focus on industry-specific capabilities that help address real-world business challenges for our clients. The new capabilities showcase our commitment to supporting clients on their hybrid cloud modernization journeys, designed for security, compliance, privacy, and trust at the forefront of our product roadmap,” said Rohit Badlaney, General Manager IBM Cloud Product and Industry Platform.

IBM’s research findings revealed that over 77 percent of global business leaders have adopted hybrid cloud solutions, with over half expressing apprehension about security and cloud compliance maintenance. The enhanced IBM Cloud Security and Compliance Center is designed to empower clients by offering continuous monitoring and centralized management of security and compliance across their hybrid and public cloud environments.

One notable addition to the suite is the IBM Cloud Security and Compliance Center Data Security Broker, developed in collaboration with Baffle, Inc. This solution introduces a layer of data encryption, including format-preserving encryption and anonymization technology, to protect sensitive data used in business applications and AI workloads.
