So let's get real about security. We all know that System z is a bell-weather system when it comes to having the most needed, most innovative, and most secure built in security capabilities on the planet. Dare we say... hack proof??? Well... during a one of a kind panel discussion with three of IBM's leading experts on Enterprise Systems security, we will have a chance to consider this and lots of other intriguing facets of security in ours age of data exploitation, risks of devastating loss to our hard fought brand names, and ever chaining threats to our data and IT environments.
During IBM Pulse 2013, Barbara Sannerud, IBM STG Business Transformation Consultant, System z, Glinda Cummings, zSecure Software Product Manager and Greg Boyd, IBM System z Security Technical Specialist will lead an interactive and in depth dialogue about how IBM does incredible things with innovative and ground breaking technologies that are integrated into systems like zEnterprise and System z security software. .Security is designed into System z – it is not an added on feature. System z’s rich set of built-in security capabilities can help you simplify and improve a complex set of operational security processes. System z is designed for the highest level of security for commercial grade platforms. Businesses that embrace System z can take advantage of: Consistent policy based user authentication, access control, audit and management, Protecting critical data with high-speed encryption and centralized key management, Creating a secure foundation for enterprise cloud and consolidated workloads, strengthened compliance and audit responsiveness to evolving regulations, and Reduced operation risk with early detection of application and network vulnerability
System z mainframes, in particular, feature a security-rich design that can help reduce the risk of data breaches in today’s distributed, collaborative, multiplatform environments. Security is built into every level of the System z structure, including the processor, operating system, communications, storage and applications. It contains security features that can specifically help organizations comply with security-related regulatory requirements including, Identity and access management provided by Resource Access Control Facility (RACF®), Hardware and software encryption along with key lifecycle management, Data storage protection, at rest or in motion, Communication security capabilities, and secure virtualization facilities
So stop by and meet an impressive panel of Security experts; challenge them to make you a believer. We think you'll leave believing in the value of security that will help you sleep better at night knowing that your data, critical business processes, applications and integrated infrastructure are as secure as they can possibly be.
