+ - IBM to spend record $1.5 billn on security in 2008

Submitted by Stony Stevenson
Stony Stevenson (954022) writes "IBM has announced a major security initiative encompassing products, services, and research to help businesses manage risk and keep information safe. To support the initiative, IBM said it plans to spend US$1.5 billion on security-related projects in 2008.

IBM believes that the siloed approach to information security has failed and plans to recalibrate its compliance and security offerings to help companies manage risk through a unified strategic approach across what it calls the five domains of information technology security: Information Security, Threat and Vulnerability, Application Security, Identity and Access Management, and Physical Security."
