IBM centralizes security for the zSeries mainframe

Friday, 13 February 2004, 7:26 PM EST

Continuing its broad strategy of infrastructure simplification, IBM Thursday introduced new security features for its latest mainframe operating system software to help centralize control of an environment that requires several tiers of security.

The z/OS 1.5 software will work with the Armonk, N.Y. company's DB2 Universal Database for z/OS Version 8 software to provide multi-level security on the zSeries mainframe to help meet the strict security requirements of government groups and financial businesses, according to Jim Porell, chief strategist for IBM zSeries Software.

In practical use, the software will enable employees from different agencies -- such as the Department of Homeland Security or the Department of Defense -- with similar security clearance to access information from one database, while prohibiting access to an employee without a clearance level.
