Many network security analysts note that careless or uninformed employees can bring on major security risks and give adversaries access to the network, which gives them the ability to fully compromise systems, taking control of critical data and/or information. That’s why organizations must have a layered approach to cyber security as they constantly learn about and refine how to secure their systems, applications, data and information, all of this by working with companies like Fortinet.

How does the IBM sCloud Deployment Service differ from the web-based MST Service on the IBM Cloud?

The IBM sCloud Deployment Service (SDDS) is a fully functional end-to-end solution that integrates the cloud, computing services and customers. Users can leverage SDDS in an online, in-person and self-service manner. SDDS has a complete set of scenarios to help users deploy applications, and manages, monitors and controls customers’ deployments. This allows customers to focus on what they do best, rather than manage security and compliance and worry about the day-to-day. It also allows the need for local configuration in on-premises environments.

What differences do you see between the IBM sCloud and the IBM Cloud MST services?
IBM Cloud offers a complete set of platform security features to protect network services, applications, data, and user data. The IBM sCloud and the IBM sCloud MST services have a close relationship where both offer powerful capabilities to help customers manage their data and systems. The added value and flexibility offered by sCloud Security for sCloud is more than the sCloud MST service. The sCloud MST service, sCloud Security is only a subset of the cloud capabilities offered in the sCloud. The sCloud MST service offers access to sCloud and sCloud Security when it is available.

In what ways can the sCloud be customized for the business or IT organization?
The sCloud is a subscription service that provides support and support services that will help customers deploy applications and manage and monitor applications. sCloud has an array of available products that you can buy to help you deploy applications or manage the security. sCloud Security, IBM sCloud Network services, IBM Security Intelligence Suite, IBM and IBM sCloud Management Services are just a few of the services available in sCloud.
Any other key elements that you would like to highlight for the security professionals out there?
The sCloud provides a set of set of tools and platforms that help users connect with IT or local systems. In addition to the apps, web apps and web portals, sCloud helps users use data analytics, data governance, and support for deploying applications.

The sCloud will help IT organizations reduce the time, cost, and risk of performing regular security reviews and maintain the secure infrastructure. IBM sCloud features now extend into the physical world and can be used to give security teams more visibility and information. The integration of IBM Security Operations Manager makes sCloud even more integrated, by providing detailed visibility of access points, users, and networks and will enable organizations to protect users and manage the security of infrastructure. sCloud has integrated monitoring technologies, which give IT organizations insight into network performance.
