Security Intelligence Solution for System z and the Enterprise Abstract
Relying on the security of the mainframe infrastructure is no longer adequate to meet contemporary challenges.
Mainframe data is now assessable via web services, web browsers and mobile devices from anywhere in world. A more holistic approach to security that considers the entire enterprise is warranted.
According to the 2011 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, greater than 85% of breaches go undetected by the affected organization. Coupled with the fact that 70% of the world’s production data originates from the mainframe, and then you understand why mainframe customers have a renewed concern about security.
IBM’s Security Intelligence solution provides a massively scalable, real time enterprise security solution that, through the use of advanced analytics, can reduce hundreds of millions security events received daily in to a handful of meaningful events that require action.
- Recognize the changing risk landscape that now threatens mainframe application and data
- Recognize the new potential attack surfaces for mainframe applications and data
- Understand the multi-tiered architectural requirements to monitor and protect the mainframe from more sophisticated attacks.
- Appreciate the role of Security Intelligence in optimizing and simplifying enterprise security and compliance
Mainframe and enterprise security is a complex, three dimension puzzle: 1) The entire environment must be instrumented to collect security events; 2) Security event information must aggregated to understand the security profile across the enterprise; and 3) Advanced analytics must be applied to the massive amounts of security information to identify those events that require attention. This webinar will present IBM’s Security Intelligence solution for the mainframe and the enterprise.
