How often are government agencies scanning for mainframe configuration and code-based vulnerabilities? Not often enough, unfortunately. It is a daunting task to do manually. Compliance officers, mainframe programmers and security administrators face a daunting task when manually monitoring complex z/OS mainframe security and compliance configurations.
When you consider how much personally identifiable information government agencies handle, it’s clear that the stakes are high. A data breach can expose our citizens’ most sensitive personal information, like Social Security numbers, tax returns and other important documents.
Government agencies need robust technologies to provide continuous monitoring and reporting of possible vulnerabilities on mission-critical mainframes, while also helping you with compliance requirements as defined in the DoD DISA STIGS. The right security tools and teams will protect critical data and essential agency processes.

z/Assure VAP supports the Federal Government Cybersecurity Framework PR.DS-6, as well as the NIST SP 800-53 standard. While popular mainframe security managers like RACF, CA ACF2 and CA Top Secret are essential for establishing permissions and access control, z/Assure VAP is the only product on the market that can identify vulnerabilities in mainframe operating system code and automatically scan for compromises to mainframe integrity.
z/Assure CAM assesses system compliance against industry accepted regulatory standards from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), the standard in configuration compliance checking mechanisms used to verify software, firmware, and information integrity. z/Assure CAM is the only product on the market that can be configured to verify compliance with an organization’s internal security policies.
