It’s just three years since IBM set out a new security framework, designed to secure businesses operating over multiple platforms from on-premises to managed services and the cloud. Since then, the whole security focus at IBM has undergone radical restructuring and become its own division, with control over its own destiny.

The result is a security approach that covers mobile devices to mainframes, on-premises deployment to cloud and a federated architecture that offers hope for the future. At IBM Interconnect 2015, the vendor’s newly formatted premier Cloud and mobile conference held in Las Vegas from 22nd to 27th February, CIC got a feel for the drive propelling the newly formed Security Business Unit forward.
