The June 11th Telarus Tuesday call welcomed IBM strategic sales representative, Ed Kimm, to discuss the value and strength of IBM cybersecurity in the market.

Who is IBM?

IBM stands for International Business Machines, and they are over 100 years old. They are the original technology company. When it comes to security, IBM is the leader in twelve main security segments. IBM has nine thousand patents; this is the highest amount of patents a company has had for twenty-six years in a row. They are the largest research and development technology organization in the world. IBM has relationships with everybody in the industry. This is part of the reason why IBM has been a leader in so many industry sectors as well as technologies. Former IBMers have written many of the leading software applications that industries are using today. IBM is known for its mainframe servers, but one of the things IBM is trying to do is shift from a software and hardware company to a services and consulting company. Today IBM has expansive security service offerings:

IBM navigates any industry sector at any size. Compliance is a challenging part of doing business today; with IBM, you can simplify compliance complexity with talent and technology.
