VFTP-SSH: Cost Effective, End-to-End Security for All z/OS File Transfers

Date and Time: Wednesday, June 13, 1:00 p.m.  2:00 p.m. CDT
Speakers: Stu Henderson and Colin van der Ross, SDS

The inherent shortcomings in FTP have costs, seen and unseen, in the areas of security, automation, compliance and visibility.

  • Can you identify all your FTP traffic?
  • Do you have the strongest levels of encryption for your business critical data across multi-platform environments at rest and in transit??

The VFTP and SSH collaboration software ensures complete and effortless, end-to-end security for all file transfers and multi-platform environments.

  • See how you can secure your outbound and inbound traffic with SSH / Tectia.
  • See how you identify what FTP is active on your systems and how to identify what files users are getting and storing on the mainframe.
  • See how easy it is to code individualized scripts to get exactly the data you want from VFTP.
  • Learn how to use VFTP automation to retry failed transfers.

Complete data at rest and in transit security integrates the z/OS FTP server with mainframe SAF security (RACF, ACF2, or Top Secret). One solution for IBM mainframe, Windows, UNIX, and Linux environments. Complete, robust monitoring and auditing of SFTP and SCP traffic provides powerful oversight, diagnostics, and proof of regulatory compliance with HIPAA, PCI, SOX & GLBA regulations.

WLM -- Not All Address Spaces are Managed Alike

Date and Time: Wednesday, June 27, 11:00 a.m.  12:00 p.m. CDT
Speakers: Peter Enrico, President, Enterprise Performance Strategies, Inc.

Not all z/OS address spaces are managed alike by WLM, & WLM administrators need to know this. There are groupings of address spaces that have various characteristics that need to be understood by WLM administrators to allow the proper WLM goals, importance levels, & period setup. These various characteristics even influence how address space measurements need to be interpreted. In fact, there are a variety of cases in which certain address spaces should not be mixed together into the same service class for WLM management.

WARNING: This presentation may cause a sudden urge to reevaluate your WLM service definition.
