DG Technology has over 20 years of experience working with companies that have been dependent on mainframes to run their business. These companies continue to realize value from the information that is generated and managed on this platform. Without a robust, comprehensive event management practice in place administrators can’t react to events in a timely manner. DG Technology helps integrate mainframe events with standard platforms used for distributed systems to improve compliance and reduce management costs.
DG Technology developed Mainframe Event Acquisition System (MEAS) to help customers collect, in real time, information pertaining to security events, database related events, transaction processing events, and more. The technology enables mainframe customers the ability to collect, store, report, and take action against the data through integration with tools like McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) software. Customers can initiate the appropriate action to report via the ePO console and can email or text message the appropriate user. This helps ensure policy-based security compliance of mainframe events.
The types of mainframe events collected by MEAS include security violations, access to critical resources, database manipulation, transaction processing events, and console events. MEAS also enhances the ability to collect, store, report, and take action against mainframe events through integration with McAfee Enterprise Security Manager, McAfee’s Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) technology.
With the ability to scale to hundreds of thousands of endpoints and centralize data for application access and elevation, it is now possible to create a workflow process that provides a holistic approach to privilege management and application security. Additionally, Privilege Guard makes it simple to give all users the privileges they need to remain productive, empowering them wherever they are without impacting the security posture of your systems and networks.
Mainframe Event Acquisition System (MEAS) v 4.0 and McAfee ePO 4.5 and 4.6.
Event integration: DG Technology’s MEAS sends mainframe security events to McAfee ePO dashboards.
The integration is available directly from DG Technology with the products that comprise the McAfee Compatible solution.
