IBM Takes Aim at Vulnerability Management

Security in a modern enterprise is a complicated multi-headed beast. Many organizations have multiple layers of tools to keep the beast at bay by detecting vulnerabilities, but few have tools to manage the entire process.

IBM is aiming to fill that void with its new QRadar Vulnerability Manager, a solution that collects data from multiple sources within an enterprise to identify vulnerabilities, which can then be prioritized, remediated and fixed.

Steve Robinson, vice president, Security Development, Product Management and Strategy at IBM, explained that QRadar's base is a security information and event management (SIEM) platform that IBM gained in its late 2011 acquisition of Q1, the vendor behind QRadar. IBM has since reformed its IBM Security Systems operations around QRadar's technology.
