Kyndryl Enhances Cybersecurity Services to Combat Rising Cyberattacks

By Stefania Viscusi

Cyberattacks are more frequent today and continue to harm customer reputations, finances, and even lead to operational shutdowns. Traditional security measures simply no longer cut it.

In response to a growing need for advanced capabilities, IT infrastructure services provider Kyndryl announced it has significantly expanded the services it offers to help enterprise customers quickly detect and effectively respond to and recover from cyberattacks.

The new end-to-end security operations capabilities and services from its growing ecosystem of partners helps customers modernize and fortify their security operations.

“The one-size fits all Security Operations Center no longer works. Today, too many organizations struggle with tools that are not configured, monitored, or connected to the systems that detect real alerts from false positives. Even with greater awareness of the need to reduce the number of tools and connect the ones that are needed, the continuing talent shortage hamstrings these well-intentioned efforts,” said Craig Robinson, Research Vice President at IDC. “CISOs and CIOs will appreciate the flexible approach that Kyndryl is offering with their expanding security operations services, while Chief Compliance Officers will appreciate their expanding global presence that helps to address the growing number of data sovereignty regulations.”

As organizations grapple with disparate and complex IT environments and security toolsets (some managing more than 100 tools), Kyndryl's vendor/partner agnostic security operations as a service platform creates a centralized and unified management system so organizations can retain existing security investments and augment their operations with new services.

These services include Managed Detection and Response (MDR), Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), and Vulnerability Management.

With its modular Security Operations as a platform, new services are delivered through global centers that validate the data handled in specific locations so customers can meet compliance and data processing requirements.

"We created an industry-leading portfolio of Kyndryl security services that are specifically built for the modern needs of cybersecurity teams by incorporating flexibility at the core," says Kris Lovejoy, Global Practice Leader for Kyndryl's Security & Resiliency practice. "Traditional security operations centers and platforms typically are rigid - they often implement a one-size-fits-all approach and don't adapt to the changing needs of the business. Our Security Operations as a platform centralize existing security investments, utilize hybrid teams, and continuously adapt for the changing threat landscape.”
