IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Perform periodic scans of the information system and real-time scans of files from external sources as files are downloaded, opened or executed

External users can upload files to a mailbox. However, the files are not scanned for malicious content in mailbox.

What is your industry? Aerospace & Defense
How will this idea be used?

This use case is important as security is at risk, for not scanning files from external sources.

    Hello, thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations, and ideas.


    IBM has evaluated the request and has determined that it cannot be implemented at this time or does not align with our current strategy or roadmap.


    Another option may be to partner SFG with IBM Sterling Secure Proxy which has recently introduced ICAP support and has futuer intentions to deliver DLP capabilities.


    Custom business processes could potentialy be a soltion as well, with user exits to do period scans. IBM Services can provide further guidance. If you would like to discuss this requiremetn with them please let your sales team know or respond to this thread.


    Thanks again.
