IT security specialist Zinopy has secured a contract from KBC Bank Ireland to provide the organisation with IBM QRadar SIEM, a comprehensive SIEM (security information and event management) solution designed to improve security levels for the bank and protect its customers’ information.

The solution provides the bank full visibility of the corporate network to identify and act on threats and allows KBC to exceed strict PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliance and regulations.

A company-wide cyber risk project was conducted by the bank to ensure that the most advanced security platform was in place to evolve with digital advancements. “Information security is a top priority for the company,” said Paul Collins, head of ICT risk at KBC Bank.

“As we looked for a new solution, we needed a platform that would help us to better identify risks and respond more quickly. Since implementing this solution the greatest saving we have seen is time, and being able to spot potential risks and respond quickly before they become incidents.”

IBM QRadar Security Intelligence Platform products provide a unified architecture for integrating security information and event management, log management, anomaly detection, incident forensics and configuration and vulnerability management. It also uses the threat intelligence expertise of the IBM X-Force research and development team to provide a pre-emptive approach to security.
