Today at the IBM PartnerWorld Leadership Conference BlackRidge Technology announced advances in identity-based network security protection and that it received Ready for IBM Security Intelligence for z Systems validation. BlackRidge Technology’s new product release now secures cloud infrastructure and IBM z Systems™ from advanced cyber security threats, and it integrates with Microsoft Active Directory® integration to automate the provisioning of identity and policy in the BlackRidge solution.
“Traditional perimeter and network security protection is no longer sufficient for today’s distributed enterprises and hybrid cloud environments. BlackRidge identity-based network security provides a new level of cloud and network security that cloaks or removes the visibility of servers from intruders. This stops known and even unknown attacks and breaches from occurring,” said Bob Graham, CEO, BlackRidge Technology. “By collaborating with IBM we have extended our patented technology to cloud infrastructure and IBM z Systems, providing built in, end-to-end protection in enterprise and hybrid cloud environments.”
