“CorreLog is proud to sponsor SHARE in Seattle and this is our seventh consecutive SHARE conference,” said George Faucher, CEO of CorreLog, Inc. “SHARE’s focus on education and innovation learning is highly aligned with our position on educating the marketplace on best-practice for securing z/OS which is arguably the most strategic IT asset in an enterprise.”

For IBM z/OS, CorreLog offers the CorreLog SIEM Agent for IBM z/OS, which takes security events – including RACF, ACF2, or Top Secret notifications on system, database, network, user accesses – and converts them in real time to distributed SIEM format for use in enterprise security systems. SIEM Agent for z/OS can be installed in most datacenters in an hour and consumes minimal CPU. SIEM Agent runs as a started task in an LPAR (or multiple LPARs) and all messages leave z/OS formatted for distributed SIEM systems; no additional batching or intermediary steps are required for converting SMF messages to SIEM format. For integration, SIEM Agent for z/OS is certified for both IBM® QRadar® and HP ArcSight.

CorreLog also offers a database activity monitoring (DAM) solution, dbDefender™ DAM Agent for z/OS, that “watches” IBM DB2 for anomalous activity. dbDefender™ DAM Agent is the preferred software agent for McAfee Database Activity Monitoring (McAfee DAM) and is certified for McAfee ePO. Capabilities in dbDefender™ DAM Agent include privileged-user monitoring, recording invalid access attempts, auditing creation/deletion of system-level objects and other attempts to alter the secure state of DB2.
