MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) May 23, 2018
Software Diversified Services™ (SDS) is pleased to announce its partnership agreement with MainTegrity to distribute SDS FIM+ for z/OS, a new File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) solution for the IBM® mainframe. While verifying data integrity on the mainframe, FIM+ for z/OS offers organizations more oversight with on demand audits and an added, critical layer of protection against harmful breaches and malicious attacks.
“Preventing a successful attack has become more challenging on every platform, including the mainframe,” said SDS VP, Jim Lampi. “Also, compliance regulations are becoming increasingly onerous every year. FIM+ is compliant and surpasses standards at PCI DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, and many others. We are very excited about this solution. FIM+ for z/OS is a great product that will help protect the mainframe and exceed compliance requirements in 2018 and beyond.”
FIM has existed on other platforms for some time but the mainframe has been left unprotected in this area. Now all platforms are required to have a mechanism in place to detect any change to all data and software files. A changelog and reviews are no longer sufficient. Currently, the PCI DSS v3.2 Requirement 11.5 requires a FIM solution in place to actively monitor for changes, which is the core competency of FIM+ for z/OS. This product is highly compatible with other mainframe tools and can be utilized for continuous monitoring and detection, as a supplement to existing network monitoring efforts, and for on demand audits.
“Partnering with SDS means FIM+ will now be available to many more customers that need this service,” explained MainTegrity’s president Al Saurette. “We set out to create an outstanding IT security solution that will enhance an organization’s existing security while making compliance easier. We believe FIM+ now meets all current and future regulatory standards and is the perfect solution for many customers.”
