Connected security platform built for a hybrid, multi-cloud world

IBM Cloud Pak for Security (ICP4S) is a platform that helps you uncover hidden threats, make informed risk-based decisions and prioritize your team’s time. It allows you to connect to your existing data sources for deeper insights, securely access IBM and third-party tools to search for threats across any cloud or on-premises location, and quickly orchestrate actions and responses to those threats – while leaving your data where it is. Delivered in a modern architecture based on microservices and containerization, it can run in any environment – on premises or on cloud. 

Solve for today's most pressing cybersecurity needs

ICP4S connects to third party tools and data sources, including multiple SIEMs, end point detection systems, threat intelligence services and identity and cloud repositories. It solves for two critical security needs: First, it simplifies and speeds investigations with federated search, arming your analysts to investigate indicators of compromise across the organization. Second, it helps you respond quickly and thoroughly to threats by automating and prioritizing tasks and collaborating across teams.  

What is IBM Cloud Pak?

ICP4S is one of a set of IBM Cloud Paks. IBM Cloud Paks are enterprise-ready, containerized software solutions that give clients an open, faster and more secure way to move core business applications to any cloud. Each IBM Cloud Pak includes containerized IBM middleware and common software services for development and management, on top of a common integration layer — designed to reduce development time by up to 84 percent and operational expenses by up to 75 percent. IBM Cloud Paks run wherever Red Hat OpenShift runs and are optimized for productivity and performance on Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud. 


ICP4S is comprised of containerized software pre-integrated with Red Hat OpenShift. The platform connects to your existing security tools – and through the use of open standards – allows you to search for threat indicators across your hybrid, multicloud environment. It also connects workflows from across the business using a unified interface.
