Packaged services will be made available for clients across the country, aimed at providing specific solutions to IT problems that directly impact their business. The packaged services launched in India has an initial set of three offerings – IBM eMail Security Services, IBM Security Assessment Service and IBM Site Assessment Services – that will enable SMBs to address issues like security, compliance and business operations enhancement.
Commenting on the offerings, Nipun Mehrotra, director, Sales – Global Technology Services, IBM India , said, “These Services are pre-scoped, pre-priced and pre-quality assured and they have have been designed specifically for the mid market. These Services re-enforce IBM’s commitment to develop custom built and priced business and technology solutions specifically for mid-sized clients in India. As part of this strategic focus, we will continue to expand our portfolio of mid market offerings based on client needs during the remainder of the year. We will also continue to leverage our recent acquisition of Network Solutions to enhance the services that we offer to small and medium businesses in India. ”
IBM eMail Security Services is designed to help organizations mitigate the risks inherent in Internet eMail communications through a comprehensive suite of services that scan and monitor eMails before it reaches the clients’ network. eMail can carry viruses, spam, pornographic material and other harmful content that can seriously compromise business’s ability to function – impacting employee productivity and, at worst, putting the entire organization at risk.

The Security Assessment Service is designed to conduct a security check of an organization’s IT infrastructure and assess its readiness against ISO 27001 standards. The service will enable appreciate the security posture of a company by verifying the integrity confidentiality and availability of the organisation’s IT infrastructure. Recommendations from the assessment aim to mitigate risks by providing inputs to close the security gaps in the IT Infrastructure.
IBM Site Assessment Services can help assess the present infrastructure and utilities that support the site of operation to function in a specific manner. IBM’s consulting and implementation experts can help define a clear infrastructure strategy with a focus on optimizing the end-to-end automation capabilities of IT environments. Some of the key benefits of this service are: (a) improving resiliency and enhancing business operations (b) preparing infrastructure for future technology advances (c) allowing focus on running business instead of on IT issues (d) providing tailored solutions to meet business needs (e) relying on the experience of a global team.
