IBM has won a network security contract from US consumer products firm Procter & Gamble.
IBM said it will use its Virtual Security Operations Center to identify and address vulnerabilities at the desktop, server, and network tiers. It said this will enable it to view, manage and monitor P&G’s global security infrastructure through a web-based portal that provides vulnerability assessment, data correlation, and analysis, as well as prioritization of security areas that need remediation.
Val Rahmani, general manager of IBM ISS, said: P&G is truly ahead of the curve with a radical approach to pre-emptive security. Working together we’ve enhanced the security infrastructure and resiliency around the globe, and we’re helping to reduce the cost of that security. With a layered, streamlined, and managed security strategy in place, P&G can focus on its core business, and ultimately better serve its customers.
