IBM launches X-Force Red Labs secure testing facilities globally

IBM announced  X-Force Red Labs, a network of four secure facilities dedicated to testing the security of devices and systems including consumer and industrial IoT technologies, automotive equipment, and Automated Teller Machines (ATMs), as part its X-Force Security Research, the company said in a statement. IBM X-Force Red also has launched a dedicated ATM Testing practice.

The new Labs will be operated by X-Force Red, an autonomous team of hackers within IBM Security, says IBM. The X-Force Red Labs will offer secure locations where X-Force Red’s hackers will work to find vulnerabilities in devices (hardware and software) before and after they are deployed to customers.

The four Labs will be in Austin, TX; Hursley, England; Melbourne, Australia; and Atlanta, GA.
