Our industry leading FIM+ mainframe security and compliance product can interoperate with many enterprise solutions in the SIEM and change management area. Bi-directional real-time connection allows information to be shared using REST APIs, Batch and other programmatic interfaces.
This allows integration of various security data and skill silos to cooperate, leading to better integration and improved decision making. FIM+ can interoperate with supported tools allowing desired actions to support such things as dynamic creation of a trouble ticket in ServiceNow or modifying the severity of an FIM+ alert based on information received or exchanging asset information.
FIM+ can pass information seamlessly to tools residing on z/OS, Windows, Unix, Linux and Cloud platforms. Alerts and notifications can be tailored to fit into existing systems being used for security and compliance.
These interfaces allow customers to build an end-to-end solution, combining the functions of FIM+ with existing tools, to create a cyber-security and resilience solution that fits the specific needs of sophisticated environments. Implementation of these, and other related solutions, often require guidance and cooperation from both customer and MainTegrity enterprise experts. As such they typically have bespoke pricing composed of software and consulting services.
• FIM+ Integration with SIEMs – FIM+ currently provides interoperation with Splunk, IBM QRadar and BMC AMI. Using standard programmatic interfaces, alerts and customer selected information can be uploaded in real-time central security monitors to ensure information can be correlated to external events and displayed on a “single plain of glass”. This complements the more in-depth, z/OS centric, forensic analysis and recovery capabilities, provided by the FIM+ native browser interface. For instance, FIM+ could update an instance of Splunk, running in the cloud, so that staff in the network ops center could work concurrently with mainframe support to resolve problems more quickly.
• FIM+ Interoperation Enterprise Management Systems – FIM+ can pass information between change management systems like ServiceNow and BMC’s Helix ITSM. FIM+ can determine if a change that has been detected is part of a planned change by integrating with your change management system. This augments the FIM+ capability of learning about desired changes as they are deployed but provides a valuable cross-check in accounts where enterprise management platforms are implemented. As a result, FIM+ can verify the approval status of identified changes or instantly cut an incident record or inform Network Ops of a problem.
• FIM+ support for application change management systems – ISPW and Changeman.
• Hardware specific support – DS8000, Hitachi BCM connector, Dell zCID support
Implementation of these, and other related solutions, often require guidance and cooperation from both customer and MainTegrity enterprise experts. As such they typically have bespoke pricing composed of software and consulting services.
New interfaces will be implemented on a priority basis, consistent with the FIM+ Development Roadmap. Proposed improvements will be discussed only under NDA and adjusted on consultation with licensed customers.
FIM+ is built to integrate with other tools, already existing or as they become available. If the desired interface is not listed here, please contact your sales representative or MainTegrity at firstname.lastname@example.org.
