ADM: What new capabilities does CA Data Content Discovery bring?
Reddy: CA Data Content Discovery helps identify data exposure risks on z Systems by automatically scanning through the mainframe data infrastructure for regulated or sensitive data. By discovering where the data is located, classifying the data to determine sensitivity level and providing comprehensive reporting on the scan results, data can be protected and exposure risks can be mitigated.
ADM: What’s unique about CA Data Content Discovery?
Reddy: CA Data Content Discovery is the only data security discovery and classification offering solely on and for the mainframe, hereby completely eliminating any risky offloading of data. CA Data Content Discovery integrates with leading enterprise security management and access control products – such as CA ACF2, IBM RACF and CA Top Secret for z/OS; revealing not just which data is exposed but who has access to such data – without increases in general CPU capacity.
