IBM Announces zSecure Suite V1.9, including zSecure Command Verifier


On Tuesday, December 12, 2007, IBM announced the availability of the zSecure suite V1.9.

The IBM Tivoli zSecure V1.9 for z/OS suite consists of multiple modular components designed to help you administer your mainframe security server, monitor for threats, audit usage and configurations, and enforce policy compliance.

The Tivoli zSecure suite is a valuable part of managing mainframe security as a process that helps meet the needs of regulators, auditors, and the business itself. These offerings are the result of a long-term commitment to innovation on the mainframe and to enabling you to improve and simplify mainframe security audit and administration. Through a broad range of offerings, the Tivoli zSecure suite helps you address your key mainframe challenges.
    • Audit and compliance:
        • Report on questionable system options and dangerous settings of privileged users.
        • Measure and verify the effectiveness of mainframe security and security policies.
    • User and security administration:
        • Centrally manage and provision users, profiles, and resources.
        • Constantly monitor crucial users and data for misuse.
    • Security risk detection and avoidance:
        • Can reduce operational costs and achieve faster incident detection.
        • Generate alerts with instant reports about RACF, IBM System Management Facilities (SMF), IBM z/OS, IBM DB2, and the UNIX subsystem.
Audit, monitoring and compliance components help ease the burden of compliance audits, improve security and incident handling, and increase overall operational effectiveness. Offerings include zSecure Command Verifier.

Tivoli zSecure Command Verifier is a robust policy enforcement solution that can help enforce mainframe compliance to company policies by preventing erroneous commands. As a result, it helps increase control and decrease security risks and cleanup costs. Running in the background, Tivoli zSecure Command Verifier verifies RACF commands against your company's policies and procedures. When commands are entered, it verifies whether the commands comply with security policies — and blocks or, optionally, adjusts the ones that do not comply.
