On July 25, IBM announced that out of the 11 companies asses by IDC for its Worldwide Managed Security Services 2014 Vendor Assessment, analysts listed the company as the leader for its impressive "strengths in advanced threat intelligence, big data analysis of threat intelligence, cloud security, complementary services, and customer portal."
The recognition shows that IBM protects companies from growing cyber attacks and protects businesses' most valuable assets, including those in the cloud.
"Companies today face an unprecedented number of potential threats which have pushed security to the top of boardroom agenda.
