BMC went private in 2013 and ever since has been on a path to transform itself into a more agile operation. Part of that transformation is a focus on enabling security, according to Bill Berutti, president of the cloud, data center and performance businesses at BMC. The new BladeLogic Threat Director builds on a technology portfolio that BMC has had since 2008, when it acquired data center automation vendor BladeLogic for $800 million.
Many organizations spend money on scanning for vulnerabilities and paying for security intelligence, according to Berutti. Many also spend money on log analytics to look for threats, but a missing link is how to tie in all the security capabilities with data center operations, he said.
“BMC BladeLogic Threat Director is a technology that allows both the security and operations teams to get full visibility into the known vulnerabilities and their current state with an organization,” Berutti told eWEEK.
