“Having a machine scan your servers and source code is a great step to help prevent data breaches, but the human element of security testing cannot be overlooked,” said Charles Henderson, global head of security testing and X-Force Red, IBM Security. “Elite human testers can learn how an environment works and create unique attacks using techniques even more sophisticated than what the criminals have.” With this in mind, IBM Security announced the formation of IBM X-Force Red, a group of security professionals and ethical hackers whose goal is to help businesses discover vulnerabilities in their computer networks, hardware, and software applications before cybercriminals do.
