IBM adopts risk e-strategy

Businesses leave far too much to chance and need to be more proactive in managing operational and IT risk, IBM has announced, as it launched its "Enterprise to the Edge" scheme to manage risk.

The situation will get worse as business models change, it claimed. The combination of collaborative business models, increasingly complex infrastructures and sophisticated criminal attacks all conspire to enhance risk in the modern corporate environment, said Tom Noonan, general manager for IBM Internet Security Systems "For many enterprises, security is broken."

IBM calls for new approaches to cut complexity, adapt to new business imperatives and enable business value versus just threat protection. In North America alone, companies are expected to spend almost £15bn on governance, risk and compliance this year estimates AMR Research.

The first wave of IBM security services and products tackle information security concerns from the enterprise to the edge of companies' networks. IBM's Internet Security Systems (ISS) unit is teaming with IBM Research and integrating with IBM's Software and Systems businesses to offer risk management capabilities.
