COLLECT REAL-TIME DATA & COMPLIANCE INFORMATION FROM YOUR MAINFRAME

What is MEAS?

Mainframe Event Acquisition System™ (MEAS™) is designed to help clients collect, in real-time, information pertaining to security events, database related events, transaction processing events and more. The technology enables mainframe clients the ability to collect, store, report and act against the data through integration with SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) technologies including Splunk, IBM, CA, Symantec, ArcSight, Dell, RSA, McAfee, and LogRhythm.

Why MEAS?

The z/OS platform is not going away like many predicted. Seventy percent (70%) of all business data is still processed by a mainframe. Increasingly, mainframes are subject to compliance requirements and increased scrutiny that require the collection of events and logs in real time. The SIEM technologies were not designed to collect mainframe data real time at the level of detail needed to meet regulatory compliance requirements.

MEAS™ provides real-time access to your mainframe events, so you can better react to situations that require your attention. No more running batch jobs to search through SMF data and having to wait 24 hours before you know something occurred. With MEAS™, you will know about and be able to respond to events that could have a negative impact on your security and compliance requirements.

How does MEAS work?

MEAS™ IS THE ONLY PRODUCT ON THE MARKET FOCUSES EXCLUSIVELY ON MAINFRAME EXPOSURE AND RISK.

MEAS™ is designed to collect, analyze and log event metrics on the z/OS platform real-time in the same way you monitor your distributed system. Coupled with your EM or SIEM TECHNOLOGY, MEAS™ will assist in the detection of ‘suspicious’ activities before they subject your company to fines and penalties.

MEAS™ listens for events on the mainframe within each LPAR, selecting only those required by the client. When a desired event is detected, MEAS™ will capture the event details, convert the data to expose the event to the SIEM technology in use by the customer. Additionally, MEAS™ will write and keep a history of events in a SQL database that can be used to execute queries against, perform event correlation and send additional events to the SIEM software for action.

Leveraging the mainframe data that MEAS™ provides, your organization can generate a full complement of packaged reports for the CCO, CSO, CRO or CISO. Once installed, MEAS™ customers can rest assured that their mainframe systems are just as secure and compliant as their Windows, UNIX, and Linux counterparts.

Clients can initiate the appropriate action in response to mainframe events to report them via the SIEM technologies and can email or text message the appropriate users to ensure policy-based security compliance of mainframe events.
