Integrate once, reuse everywhere: IBM Security and the open cybersecurity alliance

14th July 2020 | 12:00pm EST
How can organizations evolve their security programs through the use of an open, standards-based ecosystem of security solutions?

Most companies have too many cybersecurity tools to manage, too much data in too many places, and not enough skilled security professionals. That is why at the end of 2019, IBM joined forces with 17 other cybersecurity vendors – including McAfee and Crowdstrike – to form the Open Cybersecurity Alliance (OCA).

The goal of OCA is to promote open and interoperable cybersecurity. Now up 30 members as of May 2020, OCA is becoming a powerful force in the cybersecurity industry. Members subscribe to enable security teams to focus on solving security issues rather than getting tools to work together. But, how can you enable security solutions to communicate with one another over a standard fabric during the entire threat management life cycle?

Join IBM Security and a select group of industry experts to share how the OCA members are working together and contributing foundational technologies under the open-source Apache 2.0 license. We will also discuss how to transform threat hunting and detection, security analytics, operations and response and beyond.
