Description
Bottom rule

IBM SaaS offerings provide a single-tenant, virtual private cloud environment to help your development and engineering teams with solutions to grow your business through a lower investment and faster time to setup. 

As part of the IBM IoT Continuous Engineering solution environment, IBM Collaborative Lifecycle Management on Cloud and its new IBM Track and Plan on Cloud component deliver IBM software development capabilities as a subscription service. Clients receive IBM product capabilities that are managed by IBM SaaS teams which install, configure, and monitor the solution on a 24x7 basis. The offerings are hosted by IBM within a secure SoftLayer® data center. They are designed to provide 99.9% service-level objective (SLO) availability and upwards scaling to support thousands of users.

IBM provides all infrastructure-related support, which includes patch installation and upgrades. Clients pay for service on a monthly per Authorized User basis. A minimum of 15 unique user subscriptions for IBM Track and Plan on Cloud is required when purchased alone as a single cloud environment; but a unique user subscription minimum is not required when purchased with an IBM IoT Continuous Engineering solution environment. Subscriptions are available that range from 1 - 60 months. Standard SaaS cancellation terms apply.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
