IBM’s revenue beats estimates on cloud, security services

(Reuters) – International Business Machines Corp s (IBM.N1) shift to newer businesses such as cloud and security services helped it beat Wall Street s quarterly revenue estimates, and the company said its latest mainframe is getting enthusiastic adoption .

The company s shares rose nearly 5 percent to $152.80 (115.92 pounds)in extended trading on Tuesday.

Revenue in the company s mainframe business jumped 60 percent in the third quarter, Chief Financial Officer Martin Schroeter told Reuters, adding that the business benefited from the newly launched Z14.

The company began shipping the new systems toward the end of September.

System Z uptake topped our expectations, and likely helped support gross profit, said Josh Olson, an analyst with Edward Jones.

Under Chief Executive Ginni Rometty, IBM has in recent years shifted focus to growth areas across its businesses, such as cloud, cybersecurity and data analytics, to counter a slowdown in its legacy hardware and software businesses.

Revenue from these businesses, which IBM calls its strategic imperatives , climbed 11 percent to $8.8 billion in the third quarter ended Sept .

30.

Total revenue fell 0.4 percent to $19.15 billion from a year earlier, marking the smallest quarterly drop since the third quarter of 2016.

IBM s revenue declined for the 22nd quarter in a row as the company continues to exit some legacy businesses, while bolstering its strategic imperatives .

Analysts on average had expected revenue of $18.60 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

The company s net income fell to $2.73 billion, or $2.92 per share, in the third quarter, from $2.85 billion, or $2.98 per share, a year earlier.

Excluding one-time items, IBM earned $3.30 per share, beating analysts estimates of $3.28.

Electronics dealer CeX suffers major security breach

Second-hand electronics and video games dealer CeX has suffered a serious security breach, with the data of up to two million customers being stolen from its online store. The company, privately held by its founder Robert Dudani, operates a nationwide chain of high-street shops buying and selling electronics and video games, as well as an online retail platform. It said late on Tuesday that the stolen data included the names, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers of many customers.

The data also included old credit card information, but CeX assured it was all for expired credit cards, as it had not held customer credit card data in-house for a number of years.

A small amount of encrypted data from expired credit and debit cards may have been compromised, the company said in a statement.

We would like to make it clear that any payment card information that may have been taken, has long since expired as we stopped storing card data in 2009. CeX was advising customers to change their passwords for the website, as well as for any other websites on which they use the same or similar passwords.

Although your password has not been stored in plain text, if it is not particularly complex then it is possible that in time, a third party could still determine your original password and could attempt to use it across other, unrelated services. CeX said it was contacting the up-to-two million customers that may have been affected, and was working with the police and a cyber security expert to to gather details of the attack and work to prevent another from happening.

Trump says discussed forming cyber security unit with Putin

U.S . President Donald Trump said on Twitter on Sunday that he discussed forming a cyber security unit to guard against election hacking with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Tweeting after his first meeting with Putin on Saturday, Trump said now was the time to work constructively with Moscow, pointing to a ceasefire deal in southwest Syria that came into effect on Sunday.

“Putin & I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded and safe,” he said following their talks at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

Trump said he had raised allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S . presidential election with Putin.

“I strongly pressed President Putin twice about Russian meddling in our election . He vehemently denied it . I’ve already given my opinion…..”

He added: “We negotiated a ceasefire in parts of Syria which will save lives . Now it is time to move forward in working constructively with Russia!”

Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida immediately criticized the move on Twitter, saying Putin was not a trusted partner.

Partnering with Putin on a “Cyber Security Unit” is akin to partnering with (Syrian President Bashar al) Assad on a “Chemical Weapons Unit,” he wrote.

Investigations by a special counsel, Robert Mueller, and several U.S . congressional committees are looking into whether Russia interfered in the election and colluded with Trump’s campaign .

Those probes are focussed almost exclusively on Moscow s actions, lawmakers and intelligence officials say, and no evidence has surfaced publicly implicating other countries.

Moscow has denied any interference, and Trump says his campaign did not collude with Russia.
