Cloud Pak for Security 1.5 - Architecture and installation overview

IBM Cloud Pak for Security is a platform that integrates security tools to gain insights into threats across hybrid, multicloud environments.

As more businesses move to the cloud, security data is frequently spread across different tools, clouds, and IT environments. This requires teams to spend more time integrating tools and information and maintaining those integrations, and less time securing their organizations. IBM Cloud Pak for Security helps teams address these issues with an open, secure platform. It is a platform that can deliver on connecting data, connecting workflows, and connecting openly by helping you quickly integrate your existing security tools to generate deeper insights into threats, orchestrate actions, and automate responses, all while you leave your data where it is.
