Automating z/OS STIG Compliance with Real-time Continuous Security Monitoring and Simplified Audits

Date and Time: Wednesday, October 17, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. CDT
Speakers: Itschak Mugzack, Founder and Managing Director, SecuriTeam

The security, compliance, and auditing benefits gained by using STIGs are, at times, outweighed by the tedious nature of the STIG process. IronSphere will automate this process, freeing up resources to fix the vulnerabilities detected in real-time.

  1. STIG continuous monitoring and a single point of view with zero human involvement.
  2. Helps pass security compliance protocols for z/OS: NIST ISCM, RMF, GDPR, PCI DSS, FISMA
  3. IronSphere as an open framework: add your own checks to the STIG automation
  4. Beyond the DoD STIGs: Any product, Any (Cobol) application.
  5. Input diagnostic results to other products, like insurance fee calculators, GRC, Workflows, etc.
  6. Simplicity of a GUI and step-by-step resolution instructions allow less experienced staff to implement fixes while providing insight to authorized non-mainframe personnel (auditors, security team).
