Overview

Conquer compliance drift. Speed audit readiness.

Compliance audits are often a major time drain, taking staff away from more pressing efforts to satisfying auditor’s demands and stitching together data from multiple sources. Fighting mainframe compliance “drift” — maintaining, updating, and adding new processes for compliance — can be a costly effort. The new IBM Z Security and Compliance Center will help take the complexity out of your compliance workflow and the ambiguity out of audits.
