BMC, a global leader in IT solutions for the Autonomous Digital Enterprise, has announced new capabilities for the BMC AMI Security solution to automatically protect, detect and respond to threats on the mainframe. BMC AMI Security shares mainframe security events with enterprise security information and event management systems (SIEM) in real time, providing actionable insights for incident responders.
Autonomous Digital Enterprises today amass and use data from across the enterprise, including the mainframe, for optimal operations and a transcendent customer experience. The mainframe is very securable but zero-day threats, configuration weaknesses and modern threats like ransomware present risks to the sensitive data that live on mainframes.
Securing the mainframe requires skills that are in short supply. So, BMC AMI Security comes with years of experience with intelligence and automated security processes built-in to defend mainframes and surface findings that are actionable for incident responders, making both security and operations teams more efficient.
Enterprises are realising the value of moving from Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) to Extended Detection and Response (XDR) tools. Data correlation and centralisation help to surface data relevant to detection.
John McKenny, Senior Vice President of ZSolutions Strategy and Innovation at BMC. “BMC AMI Security is the virtual, always-on security expert for the mainframe that enterprises need. Its ability to adapt to threats and help enterprises include the mainframe into their XDR strategy solves a potentially large gap in protecting sensitive data within every Autonomous Digital Enterprise.”Click below to share this article
