BMC Security is a company formed by experts with over 30 years of experience in the IBM Mainframe (z/OS) world. The company’s primary focus is Mainframe security.
The core activity of BMC Security is conducting risk and security vulnerability analyses in installed SystemZ environments. They provide recommendations for continuity and disaster recovery, aiming to enhance the maturity level of Z environments in organizations.
In their work, BMC Security goes beyond simply sharing the results of their assessment with the organization. Thanks to their expertise, they provide detailed reports on potential risks that could impact the organization and offer technical details on how to mitigate them.
Typically, organizations do not include Mainframes in their information security maturity assessments because Mainframes are not connected to the internet, are considered legacy systems, and have different operating systems. However, this does not necessarily mean that their hardening level is adequate. BMC Security is one of the very few companies providing services in this field. They assess SystemZ for risk and vulnerabilities related to CICS, DB2, zLinux, and all started tasks.
BMC Security also offers a product portfolio focused on supporting information security operations. Their products include solutions for emergency operations, password management, and Racf GUI, which make life easier in existing Z environments or enhance security.
