The information security market has grown tremendously over the past
two decades as major cyberattacks have resulted in more than $10 billion in
damabes1 and revealed millions of pieces of personally identifiable information2. New legislation begins fining companies for failure to take appropriate
measures3. Yet, the vast majority of defensive systems are designed solely
for distributed platforms and fully ignore the mainframes, which run the
majority of the world's financial transactions and maintain the most sensitive data.
The mainframe has earned years of
security through obscurity because the
original hacker culture simply lacked
access to the prohibitively expensive
system to break and pen test. Today, the
cost of access for nation state sponsored
advanced persistent threats, the ubiquity
of Linux* on IBM Z* and access to a
virtualized z/OS* platform have lowered
the barrier to entry for malicious actors.
This necessitates that companies
begin protecting the backbone of the IT
infrastructure from more than the auditor.
Companies have learned this lesson the
hard way. Stories of hackings have made headlines internationally4. Even
the mainframe is not immune. Hackers have had the capacity to destroy a
company's most vital information. The only way to effectively detect and respond to attacks is to use tools that have real-time notification and monitoring of mainframe events aggregated into the enterprise SIEM where security
analysts can immediately spot unauthorized users escalating privileges,
access to the mainframe's most sensitive files and modification of sensitive
datasets.
Within a few hours, the hackers had full control of the victim's mainframe.
At this point, the hackers had the full capability to encrypt and destroy the
company's most vital information. The only way to effectively detect and
respond to attacks like this is to use tools that have real-time notification
and monitoring of mainframe events aggregated into the enterprise SIEM
where security analysts can immediately spot unauthorized users escalating
privileges, access to the mainframe's most sensitive files, and modification
of sensitive datasets.
The time to prevent stories like this from being about your organization is
now. Include your mainframe in your security architecture and ensure you
can perform endpoint detection and response to security incidents before
you are in the headlines. ■

Include your
mainframe in
your security
architecture ...
before you're in
the headlines.
