Zurich University of Applied Sciences Counts on UMB Security Know-How and IBM QRadar.08/11/2018 - 16:49
Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) is one of the leading institutions of higher education in Switzerland. There were more than 12,000 students enrolled at ZHAW in 2017 - leading to increasingly stringent IT security requirements. ZHAW has opted for the intelligent security approach (SIEM), IBM QRadar, and UMB's security know-how.
Today, approximately 3,000 people are employed at the ZHAW in Winterthur, Zurich, and Wädenswil in teaching, research, training, services and administration. In recent years, security requirements have risen steadily and an existing security information and event management system (SIEM) had to be replaced.
Security information and event management from UMB and IBM
ZHAW chose IBM QRadar because of its high performance and UMB for its many years of experience in the security sector. Commenting on the decision, Marc McGuinness, ZHAW ICT Security Officer, said: "We opted for an intelligent security concept like the one offered by IBM QRadar. UMB has set up the SIEM system perfectly and commissioned it on time and on budget".
