The complementary functions of CorreLog zDefender and dbDefender products, coupled with RSM’s zDetect, will provide unprecedented security auditing and compliance for our enterprise clients

CorreLog, the leader in mainframe & multi-platform IT security event log management, today announced a technology partner agreement with RSM Partners, a global provider of mainframe infrastructure services, software, and expertise for the IBM z System marketplace. The technology agreement combines best-in-class security software from both CorreLog and RSM, with RSM providing deep services expertise across all areas of z/OS.

“RSM is a known leader in IBM mainframe infrastructure expertise and we are honored at the opportunity to partner with them,” said George Faucher, CorreLog founder and CEO. “The complementary functions of CorreLog zDefender and dbDefender products, coupled with RSM’s zDetect, will provide unprecedented security auditing and compliance for our enterprise clients.”

CorreLog’s zDefender™ for z/OS is the leading mainframe event log management security product on the market for large enterprise environments in Government and public/private sectors. In real-time, zDefender™ delivers security event messages from z/OS to distributed Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) systems and IT Security Operations Centers (SOC), so that enterprise security admins can monitor privileged user activity from mainframe and distributed systems in the same dashboards. SIEM Agent auto-formats event messages from RACF, CA-ACF2, CA-Top Secret, DB2, IMS, CICS, IND$FILE, TSO Logons, FTP, TCP/IP, and other facilities and in real time, then forwards the messages to a SIEM or IT SOC. zDefender™ will be the agent-based technology that RSM’s zDetect will use to correlate and send real-time events to clients’ distributed SIEMs and SOCs.

CorreLog’s dbDefender™ provides Database Activity Monitoring (DAM) for both DB2 and IMS datasets with an agent-based software program that can be sold as a bundle with the CorreLog zDefender™ for z/OS product or as standalone solution. dbDefender™ for z/OS monitors database activity for any sign of unauthorized access or even attempt to view datasets, then logs the event messages for auditing and compliance and sends a real-time notification of the activity to a distributed SIEM or SOC.

RSM’s zDetect uses system data on the mainframe and manages a database of mainframe correlation events looking for user and system behavior indicative of cyber-threat. RSM will use CorreLog’s zDefender™ and dbDefender™ to send the mainframe event data, in real time, over to clients’ distributed SIEM systems and SOCs. With the CorreLog partnership, RSM clients can see the correlated mainframe security events alongside other distributed security data in their SIEM or SOC.

“We see the combination of the two technologies offering unique value and insight for those enterprises seeking reliable real-time alerting of security threats on their mainframe platform,” said RSM Founder, Technical Director, and Security Practice Leader Mark Wilson. “The wide capability delivered by CorreLog, combined with the security threat algorithms contained in RSM’s zDetect knowledge base is unrivalled in the marketplace. CorreLog has rightfully established a global leadership position in this area and RSM is very pleased to be able to offer significant added depth and value.”
