When it comes to enterprise security, no news is not necessarily good news. A lack of alerts about attempts to attack your system does not mean they did not happen because chances are, they did. Many large organizations track multiple attempts a week. A lack of alerts just means that while previous attacks were unsuccessful, you may not have received the information and insight you need from your security system to protect against the next attack. Plus, security event analysis might be siloed within individual departments with no enterprise-wide view of the attacks taking place. The next attack could be successful and devastating. In today's interconnected business environment, no system is immune to threats, including mainframe environments. To meet this need, IBM has developed an approach to enterprise security called security intelligence. Using integrated solutions, IBM delivers threat analysis, real-time alerts, audit consolidation and compliance reporting to help you keep pace with today's increasing threats, with a single view into the risks affecting both mainframe and distributed systems. Covering people, data, applications and infrastructure, the IBM security intelligence program includes the automated analysis and reporting capabilities you need to deal with the complexity of event monitoring and compliance reporting without burying your staff with an endless stream of log data that does not record threats. Moreover, security intelligence can increase the depth of insight and real-time anomaly detection, improving the integrity of both mainframe and distributed systems, demonstrating compliance and protecting your mission-critical workloads.
