Cyber security software leader MainTegrity Inc. and Vertali, provider of IBM® Z mainframe services and software, today announce the extension of their strategic partnership to include integration of their 2 key products FIM+ and zTrust for Networks. Focused on winning the battle against ransomware and other cyber threats, this integration provides the most comprehensive deterrent available against cyber criminals, disgruntled employees and rogue state entities, targeting mission critical IBM mainframe systems.

Specifically, FIM+ and zTrust, working together, can:

  • Protect against ransomware and malware intrusions
  • Extend network detection to neutralize data exfiltration attempts
  • Send real-time alerts, without attendant false positives,
  • Remove human reaction time with suspend/resume processes
  • Initiate forensic monitoring and of suspicious connections
  • Add resiliency with automated recovery techniques

This end-to-end solution provides unmatched prevention and recovery for mainframes that remain the backbone of critical computing in Financial Services, Utilities, Health, Government, and other essential services. “With staffing and development sites distributed around the globe, significant reductions in geo-technical risk can be achieved” observes Al Saurette, CEO of MainTegrity. “As a result, clients can expect not only the most complete resiliency solution available but also immediate, focused and reliable support, irrespective of customer location and local working hours.”. Mark Wilson, Vertali Technical Director, states “mainframes are an increasing target for Cyber criminals and prevention is much better than a cure. We need to be on the front foot as far as detection is concerned. The combination of FIM+ and zTrust, gives mainframe users a superior method of detecting a cyber-attack and stopping it before major damage occurs”.
