Upcoming Webcasts


Revolutionary Improvement for Security and Compliance of IBM Mainframes

Date and Time: Thursday, October 10, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. CT
Speaker: Al Saurette, Security Thought Leader, MainTegrity, Inc.

Breach Detected: Respond in a Heartbeat

FACT: Breaches happen, even on the mainframe... When they do, you'd better be ready and you'd better be right. 69 days to respond to a breach? This IBM report says so. See how FIM+, the only File Integrity Monitor for mainframes, prepares you to react with precision, in minutes... not days.

Step One: Confirm the Alarm is real
There are too many false alarms. Confirm it’s a real threat by comparing to a trusted level.

Step Two: Know What Changed
Instream compare tells you what line or character changed. Know why it changed and what services were impacted? Traditional tools don’t have these answers. But FIM+ does. FIM+ finds all changes and selects just the relevant SMF access records. Now you know who did it and you can react correctly.

Step Three: Know What to Restore
The FIM+ restore assistant determines all compromised components and which versions to restore. Then FIM+ proves all modules were fixed correctly and you are back in business. FIM+ gives you the answers in a heartbeat letting you take back control as fast as possible.

Think Again... Mainframe Innovation is on the Move Again! 

Date and Time: Thursday, October 17, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. CT
Speakers: Ken Steinhardt, Field CTO, Debbie Miller, Software Engineer; Infinidat

Your incumbent vendors have forgotten you, except when it’s time to send you a new invoice. You’ve been paying more for the same storage, without any new innovation. To save money, you’ve even migrated your massive data store to secondary media, such as virtual tape. And now, you feel like you’re being forced onto expensive new media that doesn’t necessarily benefit your applications.

Time to think – again, because mainframe innovation is finally on the move. Attend Infinidat's webinar to learn about a new solution that will provide you with superior performance and the flexibility to handle modern workloads without forgetting about your existing applications. At the same time, you’ll benefit from significantly improved ease-of-use, integration with your applications, and the ability to consolidate your older frames into a single floor tile — all with the industry’s lowest TCO.
