Net-Examine™: Assesses Enterprise Extender & SNA Security

No matter how thick your firewall, the IP network is a gateway for mainframe attacks.

Typical firewalls only secure IP traffic. They don't understand SNA/APPN or Enterprise Extender (SNA/APPN traffic wrapped in IP packets).

Scan and report your mainframe security risks now!
