IBM Advances Cloud Pak for Security to Manage Threats Across Tools, Teams & Clouds

IBM | October 14, 2020

IBM (NYSE: IBM) Security today reported new and forthcoming capacities for Cloud Pak for Security, including a first of its sort information security arrangement that permits organizations to distinguish, react to and ensure against dangers to their most touchy information across cross breed cloud conditions. Intended to bring together recently disengaged security advancements, IBM has extended Cloud Pak for Security to incorporate new information sources, mixes, and benefits that permit security tasks groups to deal with the full danger life cycle from a solitary comfort.

With these forthcoming capabilities,1 Cloud Pak for Security will incorporate admittance to six danger knowledge takes care of, 25 pre-assembled associations with IBM and outsider information sources, and 165 case the executives combinations – which are associated through cutting edge AI to organize dangers, and mechanization playbooks to smooth out reaction activities for security groups.

As cloud reception and far off work have scattered the conventional IT edge, security reaction groups can profit by more profound experiences into security across mixture cloud conditions. Client conduct, personalities and information security have generally been siloed from danger the executives. With the forthcoming new abilities, Cloud Pak for Security will turn into the primary stage in the business to interface information level bits of knowledge and client conduct examination with danger discovery, examination and reaction.

Today IBM is declaring capacities to propel the Cloud Pak for Security considerably further, including:

Composed Threat Response + Data Security: IBM has built up another industry-first way to deal with furnish security groups with perceivability into information movement, consistence and danger, without expecting to leave their essential reaction stage. The new inherent information security center point, planned for general accessibility in Q4, permits investigators to rapidly pick up setting into where their touchy information lives across mixture cloud conditions, just as who approaches it, how it is utilized, and the most ideal approach to ensure it. Connecting the distinction between information security and danger the executives can diminish the course of events for reacting to information penetrates, which presently take over a half year to distinguish and contain on normal for as of late studied organizations.2

Admittance to Industry Leading Threat Intelligence: Cloud Pak for Security is growing its assortment of danger insight, helping customers distinguish early admonition indications of dynamic danger crusades affecting organizations around the globe.

Aetina Launches New ASIC-Based Edge AI System Powered by Blaize

Aetina | December 08, 2022

Aetina, an edge AI solution provider that offers embedded computing hardware and software for AI and IoT, has launched a new ASIC-based edge AI system powered by the programmable Blaize® Pathfinder P1600 Embedded System on Module (SoM). The Aetina AI inference system—AIE-CP1A-A1—is a small-sized embedded computer designed for different computer vision applications, including object detection, human motion detection, and automated inspection. The AIE-CP1A-A1 model features the small form factor Blaize® Pathfinder P1600 Embedded SoM, ideal for rugged and challenging environments and embedded systems that need extended temperature ranges. It features Dual ARM Cortex A53 processors, 16 GSP cores providing 16 TOPS AI performance, and the benefits of low memory bandwidth and low latency, making it capable of accelerating neural network (NN) deployment and deep learning (DL) process. Based on the Blaize Graph Streaming Processor (GSP®) architecture, the Pathfinder enables energy-efficient processing power ideal for AI inferencing workloads at the edge, easily plugs into a custom carrier board, and runs autonomously or integrated within a larger system. Due to its compact, fanless design and multiple I/O ports, the AIE-CP1A-A1 can fit both commercial and industrial-grade AI-powered systems that involve vision AI-related inference. The Blaize Pathfinder also supports H.264/H.265 video encoder and decoder, making it compatible with different sensors to run quick image recognition and video analytics tasks. Aetina offers customized carrier boards and computer cases for sophisticated system integration and chip-down design service to provide other kinds of embedded computing models, such as single-board computer (SBC) with the Blaize Pathfinder in addition to regular box PCs. Moreover, Aetina helps developers convert their AI inference models to a format that can run and function normally on edge devices built with ASIC chips. “We are now expanding our edge computing product line to bring more GPU and ASIC-based solutions to help developers build their AI systems in various verticals and industries. “The AIE-CP1A-A1 model, powered by Blaize Pathfinder P1600 SoM, is our first ASIC-based system. In the future, by integrating different types of chips and modules, we can offer heterogeneous computing devices that are suitable for different AI models.” Jackal Chen, Senior Product Manager at Aetina Keeping AI processing and inferencing workloads at the edge, rather than sending data to the cloud, is critical for cost-effective and almost latency-free AI applications," said Dinakar Munagala, CEO and Co-founder of Blaize. "The Pathfinder SoM and our GSP architecture enable this key business objective for the demands of computer vision applications, including object detection, autonomous optical inspection, robotics, and more." Additionally, Aetina is now developing more ASIC-based AI accelerators with M.2 and EDSFF specification for developers, speeding up the inference processes of their AI models at the edge.
