IBM has released what it says is its biggest security rollout to date, with ten new products, including what it claims is the world's first ever Hadoop data security system.
The new InfoSphere Guardium v9 for Hadoop system was unveiled on Thursday along with a slew of other updated security products.
IBM said that it released the upgrade to help businesses protect their systems and data against the growing number of cyber threats that now exist.
"IT systems must now supply enormous amounts of data to users located around the globe, who access data from both cloud environments, enterprise and personal devices," IBM world wide security solutions market leader, Darren Argyle told V3.
"We know that it's no longer possible to define and protect the perimeter. The industry has moved from traditional single perimeter-based security to a logical multi-perimeter approach to security focusing on the data and where it resides."
The Guardium system offers Hadoop users real time security and vulnerability data monitoring abilities, boasting an automatic compliance and data privacy reporting system.
IBM claimed the system works on both structured and unstructured databases and will allow businesses to understand big data and application access patterns, thus helping them prevent data loss and enforce management policies.
IBM also made a number of upgrades to its cloud and mobile offerings.
IBM's increased cloud security offering included an upgraded SmartCloud tool that aims to offer businesses automatic patching capabilities and a number of tweaks to its existing QRadar Security Intelligence Platform.
The QRadar upgrade increases the service's analysis and logging capabilities and is designed to help businesses make, "better-informed business decisions" about cloud security.
For mobile, IBM released a risk-based authentication control that offers businesses increased access management and mobile device control powers.
The company also added a new Mobile Security Framework tool to help develop new data protection and application access control strategies. Both tools are designed to ease the burden of the ongoing bring your own device to work trend.
Finally, IBM upgraded its Tivoli Key Lifecycle Manager tool's encryption powers, looking to help companies protect sensitive data.
The release follows widespread warnings within the security industry that tradition cyber defence strategies are failing.
Most recently Autonomy founder Mike Lynch warned UK businesses that they must focus more on the internal, rather than external threats facing their data during a keynote speech at IP Expo in London.
