Enterprise SIEMs require all enterprise data

In a landscape of increasing compliance regulations and constantly-evolving IT security threats, companies are looking for simple, real-time, 360-degree intelligence into compliance deviations and security incidents. As a result, SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) solutions are now a critical IT tool at many companies and government organizations.

Enterprise SIEM solutions – such as Splunk, IBM QRadar, SolarWinds, and LogRhythm – collect, manage, and analyze security information and report on security events. However, they do not have native support for security data from mainframe and IBM i systems out-of-the box.

Having visibility into these systems in your SIEM platform is imperative to keeping your organization safe and in compliance. While they operated in relative isolation in the past, today they are connected to the rest of your enterprise and are vulnerable to cyberattack.

You need a comprehensive, single view of your entire IT infrastructure, including the mainframe and IBM i servers that power your most mission-critical workloads, to enable early detection and threat response across all your systems. Unfortunately, integrating these systems into an enterprise SIEM platform is a challenge due to the range of data sources to monitor, proprietary data formats, and specialized skills required to analyze and integrate the data.

Syncsort solutions provide an automated, seamless way to forward IBM i and mainframe machine data to your enterprise SIEM to keep your organization secure and in compliance with regulations.

Security issues are top of mind for many CSOs (chief security officers) and CISOs (chief information security officers). But security is a collaborative effort that touches every corner of the business, and requires comprehensive, enterprise-wide visibility to detect threats early and respond to them fast.

Using a SIEM to monitor system and database changes is critical to preventing, or limiting the damage from, malicious actors, whether they come from inside, or outside, your organization.

With Syncsort solutions, you can integrate mainframe SMF records and IBM i log data into enterprise SIEMs such as Splunk, IBM QRadar, Solar Winds, ArcSight, LogRhythm, LogPoint, Netwrix and more. Monitor user authentications, account and login activity, FTP sessions and file activity, and more, for a consolidated, real-time analysis of security threats and incidents – no matter where they happen across your IT infrastructure.

No matter your industry, chances are high that your organization is governed by regulations with stringent cybersecurity requirements, such as SOX, GDPR, HIPAA, PCI DSS, state privacy regulations, and more.

Your IBM i and mainframe systems process massive volumes of sensitive information that your customers, business partners and employees trust you to keep safe. It is critical that you continuously monitor the security of those systems to maintain compliance and reduce the risk of data breaches that subject you to regulatory fines and negative publicity.

While the journals and log files from these systems are comprehensive, they’re also cryptic and voluminous. If information is needed for an audit or analysis, it’s nearly impossible to extract it in a timely fashion.

Syncsort solutions forward IBM i and mainframe data to your enterprise SIEM so you can not only demonstrate compliance with regulatory mandates, but also pass critical regulatory audits.

Get a complete view of IT security and compliance

SIEM software products and services combine security information management and security events generated by servers and applications to provide real-time analysis of security alerts and threats happening within an organization’s IT infrastructure.

Event and log collection, search, visualization and other security-specific activities traditionally done at a “silo” level, now must be expanded to include and correlate all relevant security information and security events from the entire enterprise. With solutions from Syncsort, you can create an integrated, 360-degree view in your SIEM that brings together insights from mainframe, IBM i, cloud and other distributed platforms – allowing you to identify and address compliance and security across the enterprise using a single pane of glass.
