Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) January 15, 2016
Type80 Security Software, Inc., the industry leader of real-time intrusion detection and response software for the IBM mainframe, announced today they have successfully completed validating their products for use with z/OS V2.2, the latest version of IBM’s zSeries operating system.
IBM's z/OS V2.2 is a world class operating system capable of supporting thousands of workloads concurrently. Keeping track of security-related events and reporting them at the enterprise-level, in such an environment, is a difficult task and the surrounding requirements can be monumental.
Type80’s software helps centralize security event monitoring and bridges the gap between mainframe and network security products. It seamlessly sends condensed security log and audit information from the IBM z/OS mainframe, in real-time, to any SIM, SIEM or Log Consolidation software running in a distributed environment.
“For industries like finance, healthcare, retail, telecommunications and others, reporting mainframe security issues to the enterprise in real-time is a necessity. In practice, it can be very complex, but it is simply what we do,” said Jerry Harding, Managing Director of Type80.
Type80 Security Software is an IBM Business Partner in software development and was founded by experts in the areas of mainframe z/OS Systems Programming and Information Security. The company draws from a diverse background, from providing cybersecurity training to NATO counter intelligence, conducting enterprise-wide security assessments for companies maintaining the nation's critical infrastructure, and developing high-level mainframe applications for major financial institutions.
