IBM to Acquire Resilient Systems for Security Incident Response

IBM agreed to acquire Resilient Systems, a leader in security incident response solutions, based in Cambridge, Mass. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Resilient Systems' incident response platform technology enables clients to respond to security breaches faster and with greater precision and coordination, allowing orchestration of response process across functions (security, HR, finance, government relations, etc.) and across security systems (those monitoring data, applications, end points, networks, etc.). It also helps clients to respond to increasing regulation.

"We are excited to be joining IBM Security, the industry's fastest-growing enterprise security company," said John Bruce, Resilient Systems Co-Founder and CEO. "By combining, the market now has access to the leading prevention, detection and response technologies available in the same portfolio – the security trifecta."

A major benefit will be the planned combinations of Resilient Systems' Incident Response Platform with IBM QRadar Security Intelligence Incident Forensics, BigFix, IBM X-Force Exchange and IBM Incident Response Services that can enable an orchestrated process for addressing security incidents.

IBM also launched new X-Force Incident Response Services, which include consulting and managed security services to help clients manage all aspects of responding to a cyber breach. IBM X-Force security experts will help clients develop response strategies, including Computer Incident Response Team playbooks, and a means to more effectively discover, track, respond to and report on security incidents.  These new capabilities will be further enhanced through the planned acquisition of Resilient Systems.
