Today's current security focus is on the application layer, the thinking being a robust security program focuses on network and applications. However, in our experience, this has led to an imbalance in the focus of enterprise security, where more time is spent on applications leaving the operating system by the wayside. There is even a â€œpractical handbook for selecting application security tools and vendorsâ€�.
If youâ€™ve been keeping up with current trends attackers arenâ€™t just focusing on the application layer but at the entire stack. All it would take would be one zero-day vulnerability in the z/OS operating system layer to bypass everything you have done, and are doing, to secure your data.-Ray S. Overby-Key Resources, Inc.
