Fortinet announced that it has collaborated with IBM on the new IBM X-Force Threat Management Services. Working with IBM Security on X-Force Threat Management Services enables both organizations to further provide mutual customers with unprecedented threat insight, attack detection and prevention, and an integrated defense-in-depth strategy designed to seamlessly span across an organization’s entire attack surface.
IBM X-Force Threat ManagementServices was developed around the key tenets of the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework creating an integrated and programmatic approach across the entire threat management lifecycle.
IBM Security has been a Fortinet Fabric-Ready partner since 2017. This latest partnership combines Fortinet’s comprehensive security protections with IBM’s world-class security expertise to provide enhanced value to customers through the delivery of advanced protection and support against today’s sophisticated cyberthreats, across on-premise and multi-cloud environments.
Leveraging the Fortinet Security Fabric provides mutual customers with the broad visibility, integrated threat intelligence, and automated response required for today’s digital businesses. In addition, the Security Fabric’s integrated threat intelligence services assist businesses with determining where to best prioritize resources based on threats seen across the entirety of an organization.
Because many of the IBMX-Force Threat ManagementServices partners are also members of Fortinet’s Fabric-Ready technology ecosystem, customers are able to deploy a fully integrated solution that delivers unmatched expertise, real-time intelligence, and powerful security tools and services.
Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC at Fortinet, said, “Fortinet and IBM have a long-standing relationship, and today’s announcement marks another significant milestone towards protecting our mutual customers. The Fortinet Security Fabric provides broad visibility across the digital attack surface, integrated detection of advanced threats, and automated response required to secure today’s digital businesses. And because many IBM X-Force Threat Management ecosystem members are already Fabric-Ready Partners, our Security Fabric is a perfect complement to IBM’s new threat management services.”
