MINNEAPOLIS, MN – December 3, 2015 – Software Diversified Services, industry leader in security and monitoring for IBM mainframes, today announced the immediate availability of Type80 SMA_RT release 3.3, a real-time, security-event monitoring solution for the IBM z/OS operating system.
Despite years of predictions that the mainframe would die, “Big Iron” remains one of the most critical components of many federal agency and Global 1,000 IT infrastructures. Type80 SMA_RT helps centralize security-event monitoring, bridging the gap between mainframe and network security products.
SMA_RT uses intelligent data mining from multiple z/OS system sources to provide increased mainframe security. “SMA_RT release 3.3 seamlessly transports security log and audit information from the IBM z/OS mainframe, in real-time, to any SIM, SIEM or log-consolidation software running in a distributed environment,” said Jerry Harding, managing director of Type80, the company that created and develops SMA_RT. SMA_RT is sold and supported by Software Diversified Services of Minneapolis.
New features of SMA_RT 3.3 include:
- The ability to write event data and store it on the z/OS mainframe itself in addition to, or in place of, sending it to the SIEM or log consolidation software product residing on the network.
- Expanding the statistical summary reporting on storage usage and records processed.
- Allowing for event reporting on predefined security groups in addition to individual users.
- Capturing events based on security authorities including special privileges, operations privileges, auditor privileges, trusted IDs and others.
Type80 Security Software, Inc., was founded by experts in the areas of mainframe z/OS systems programming and information security. SMA_RT (Security Monitor Alerts in Real-Time) is its primary security product, and the first real-time mainframe intrusion-detection, z/OS SIEM agent, and log-event processing software of its kind. SMA_RT has been deployed by commercial customers in four continents.
