IBM has announced plans to acquire Resilient Systems to add incident response capabilities to its services.
The Resilient incident response platform automates and orchestrates the processes needed when dealing with cyber incidents – from breaches to lost devices. This will enables users to respond and mitigate cyber incidents more quickly while helping minimize their exposure. Financial terms were not disclosed. The transaction is expected to close later this year, subject to any required regulatory reviews.
Upon acquisition of Resilient Systems, IBM Security will offer an integrated end-to-end security operation and incident response platform offering. The platform will bring together security analytics, forensics and vulnerability management along with incident response into a coordinated approach for enterprise threat protection, detection and response.
John Bruce, Resilient Systems Co-Founder and CEO, said: “By combining, the market now has access to the leading prevention, detection and response technologies available in the same portfolio – the security trifecta.”
