IBM sees no risks to Russian business from localization trends

The world of cyber security right now is focused on collaborating across boundaries.

IBM does not see risks to its Russian business from the trends in the industry to localize and laws adopted in Russia forcing companies to store data nationally, IBM Security Unit Vice President Bob Kalka told TASS in an exclusive interview on the sidelines of the Sochi International Investment Forum.

"I don’t," Kalka said in response to the respective question. "The world of cyber security right now is focused on collaborating across boundaries. There is a clear realization right now that not openly sharing what I can see is a mistake," he added.

Bob Kalka said it’s exactly the trend of keeping data stored nationally that was behind the company’s recent global expansion. "We get a lot more demands which say ‘we’d like to use your technology, but we would like our data to stay locally resident’, so we just announced two weeks ago that we’re opening 10 new security centers around the globe, and that is one of the major reasons why," Kalka said.
