Mainframes are the definition of “mission-critical.” Your business cannot operate without them. Far from being back-end devices, the functions provided by mainframes are some of the most visible and customer-centric aspects of your technology.
When it comes to mainframe security, the buck stops with you – not your vendors or partners. The mainframe is the most secure computer system – but it’s still a computer system. The same strategies you use for open systems need to be applied to your mainframes.
Obscurity isn’t security. You need to protect the mainframe just like any other IT system. Up to 70% of your corporate data might reside on the mainframe – and it might be among your least- secured systems. Make OS- level integrity part of your overall security strategy.
RACF®, CA ACF2®, and CA Top Secret® are essential for establishing permissions and access control, but they are not a complete security solution. z/Assure VAP is the only product available that can identify vulnerabilities in mainframe OS layer code and automatically scan for compromises to mainframe integrity.
Our team is comprised of individuals who know z/OS internals. We are technologists with years of experience in mainframe operating system internals, enterprise architecture, and we have extensive experience with mainframe ESMs such as RACF, CA ACF2, and CA Top Secret. The Key Resources Team understands how hackers think, we understand the security risks that threaten z Systems, and we know how to mitigate those risks at in-depth levels of the operating system.
