Go beyond passwords for strong user authentication

IBM Multi-Factor Authentication for z/OS prevents hacking, strengthens user controls, and eases administration with tight RACF integration.

Strengthen mainframe security with multiple layers

The value of data has skyrocketed—and with it, threats to data security. Because a mainframe environment has thousands of users simultaneously executing a wide range of applications with varying performance profiles, it requires a multi-layered approach, including user identification and authentication, access control and other advanced security measures.

Secure mainframes can help you protect your enterprise, detect threats, comply with policy and regulations, and reduce costs.

  • Reduce business risk by enforcing security policy and best practices
  • Provide closed loop, automated security intelligence and threat remediation

  • Simplify provisioning, governance and authorization of users, groups and resources

  • Protect essential data with comprehensive encryption and access control
