Zug, Switzerland (PRWEB) May 14, 2010
Enterprise-IT-Security.com, an independent leader in security and compliance solutions and services for both the mainframe and client-server platforms, today announced support for the IBM System z Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) in SF-Sherlock 7.1. SF-Sherlock's zIIP support represents the first and only security and compliance monitoring platform optimized for the popular z/OS mainframe environment.
The zIIP chip was designed to handle specialized workloads and other processing intensive applications. Specialized mainframe processors like the zIIP allow users to offload work that might otherwise run on the mainframe's general purpose chips.
"By extending support for the IBM zIIP, Enterprise-IT-Security.com is providing mainframe users a dramatic performance and cost advantage to expand their operations in the zIIP mainframe environment," said Dr. Stephen Fedtke, CEO of Enterprise-IT-Security.com. "It represents the latest of many levels of support and interoperability Enterprise-IT-Security.com offers to IBM customers."
For mainframe operations that need to drive greater value and performance, Enterprise-IT-Security.com has optimized its z/OS security flagship solution SF-Sherlock for the zIIP environment. The new version performs the same mission-critical tasks, while maximizing processing power and reducing execution and reaction times, as well as delivering consistent application performance and solid customer service. By enabling SF-Sherlock's monitoring capabilities on the mainframe, including comprehensive intrusion detection, event monitoring and configuration assessment, Enterprise-IT-Security.com gives customers real-time security and compliance with excellence in speed, completeness, and quality.
Leveraging the zIIP, Enterprise-IT-Security.com helps enhance mainframe operations of SF-Sherlock by improving resource optimization to reduce latent workload demand, which the central processor can now absorb, and by stimulating visible performance improvement.
"Enterprise-IT-Security.com is dedicated to helping customers enhance value and optimize their security and compliance," said Enterprise-IT-Security.com founder and CEO Dr. Stephen Fedtke. "By extending SF-Sherlock to support zIIP, we have dramatically recalculated the economics in this field of mainframe security and compliance monitoring. With SF-Sherlock's extended capabilities, customers now can leverage the genius of the zIIP environment without compromising accessibility or performance."
