International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) said on Wednesday it is launching a cybersecurity hub in Bengaluru to address the concerns of its clients across the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
Analysts agree the need for a security hub like this is paramount. “India has become a hub for cyber attacks as it advances in its digital, startup, and ‘Make in India’ mission, increases its data centre capacity, and enhances its citizen services. So, the need for a SOC has dramatically increased in India,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, CEO and chief analyst, Greyhound Research.
Unfortunately, he added, that many Indian organizations don’t see it that way and continue to see SOC purely from a cost lens, which “puts them at grave risk, especially as they adopt more open, API-based, cloud-delivered services”.
Gogia believes that investments from a company like IBM bode well for the industry and the country. He added, though, that the success of such a security hub “lies in the applicability of the security solutions to meet the specific needs of the client and the ability to use new technologies like automation, AI, and analytics in sync with the human element”.HT Mint
