Type80’s software Version 3.3.005 improves their customer’s compliance requirements on z/OS mainframe operating systems.

Type80 Security Software, Inc., the industry leader of real-time intrusion detection and response software for the IBM mainframe, announced today they have released Version 3.3.005 of their products for use with IBM’s z/OS zSeries operating system.

Version 3.3.005 of Type80’s software now supports various industry standard formats when delivering events to SIEM vendor products. It allows for the monitoring, collection and reporting on DB2 Administrator events, regardless of whether or not DB2 Audit Class records are being collected. For example, if this feature is configured, you will get an event notification on Start Trace, SYSADMIN Authority, DBADMIN and AUDTPLCY regardless of the configuration for individual SMF102 DB2 audit class records.

Additionally, DB2 events may be tracked and filtered by DBID’s Name, DB Name, OBID’s / PSID’s Name, TableName (Create, Alter, Drop), Plan, Package, Location or Program.

“For one of our customers, incorporating these features into our product enabled us to meet their compliance mandate 6 months earlier than expected” said Jerry Harding, Managing Director of Type80.
