An industry-first data scanning solution that allows users to systematically locate sensitive and personally identifiable data.
While there may be preparations and safeguards surrounding your mainframe, there’s always the risk that security loopholes could lead to a data breach. So, you'll need a system in place that can clearly alert you to the abnormal access attempts.
When it comes to the control of your mainframe, transparency is important. But there’s a fine line between access and vulnerability. While customers need to know who has permissions to mainframe data and when they are sourcing assets, it’s equally important to understand how individuals have access.

Deeper insight into security and compliance issues leading to an improved risk posture.
Part of any comprehensive security governance is documenting and reporting on incidents and access. Not only is this good behavior, but external audit requirements are increasing, and auditors require a complete picture that data regulations are being satisfied across your mainframe.
It’s necessary to establish a framework for classifying institutional data based on its level of sensitivity, value and criticality to your business. In order to manage increasingly strict regulations for data, you will need a way to automatically identify and classify these data-types in order to apply the appropriate security controls.

Flexibility to adjust security policies based on organizational structure.
In the application economy, the number of external applications connected to and running through the mainframe is increasing exponentially. The internet, Internet of Things (IoT) and millions of mobile devices are now interconnected with the mainframe through APIs.
To protect all of the data running through APIs and into potentially vulnerable mainframes, new regulations and compliance mandates are being created. For example, the General Data Protection Regulation, European Parliament, the Council and the European Commission are working to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals and businesses both inside and outside the EU.
Because data is the most-regulated artifact in the application economy, organizations must take additional steps to ensure the security of their customers’ data. Read on to find out how you can bolster the strength and security of your mainframe.
Deeper insights for data security and compliance.
