The mainframe is the backbone of our digital world.

And a hacker’s jackpot.

The mainframe is part of our everyday lives

Our credit card transactions, health records and more all exist on the mainframe, where the majority of organizations still host critical core IT.

92 percent

of the world’s top 100 banks

92 percent

of the world’s top 25 airlines

92 percent

of the world’s top 10 insurers

92 percent

of Fortune 500 companies

But as a result, the mainframe is a
prime target for cyberattacks.

The top mainframe threats of 2021 are:

#

Weak passwords

#

Culture of speed over security

#

Failure to encrypt internally

#

Surge in IoT devices

#

User error

#

Increasingly sophisticated
hack tactics

#

It takes as little as
30 seconds
for a hacker to exploit these vulnerabilities.

#

Which can cost businesses an
average of
$4.24 million.
