IBM and Cisco are joining forces to help customers improve their cybersecurity efforts, the pair announced on Wednesday. The two companieswill collaborate across certain products and services, sharing threat intelligence as well, a press release said.
As part of the partnership, Cisco security solutions will integrate with IBM’s QRadar security intelligence platform to broaden protection across the enterprise. According to the release, this could boost security across endpoints, networks, and the cloud.
Essentially, this part of the collaboration means that Cisco will build applications on the QRadar platform. There are two apps in the works, both focused on threat response, and they will be available on the IBM Security App Exchange, the release said. Also, Cisco’s Threat Grid will get a boost from IBM’s Resilient Incident Response Platform (IRP) to give users better insights into threats and speed their response time.
