CA Technologies Develop New Data-Centric Security Against Vulnerabilities and Compliance Challenges

CA Technologies announced new data protection enhancements to CA Data Content Discovery and CA Compliance Event Manager that simplify security management across the enterprise and enable robust, end-to-end protection for data-in-motion from mobile to mainframe. The solution enables organizations of all sizes to better manage their data and address security and compliance needs. The enhancements provide any IT team with:

  • Enterprise-wide insights that export mainframe security incidents to Splunk for a single-pane-of-glass view of risks, enabling security and audit professionals to better manage security end to end in an enterprise.

  • Support for data-in-motion that helps prevent loss of sensitive data on the mainframe with increased coverage of data sets to secure all core applications.

  • Simplified security and compliance with new and enriched event reporting for non-mainframe experts to help triage faster.

Increase in the IT workforce towards a fresher, experience-chaser demographic, CA has designed new features to provide a simplified, yet in-depth, dashboard that gives IT teams of any multilevel the visibility to see and respond to potential vulnerabilities across the enterprise.

According to Ken Gross, Mainframe Software Specialist, Mainline Information Systems, “Data compliance and privacy are table stakes for any successful company. We see CA Data Content Discovery helping our customers with the ability to recognize, in an intelligent and accessible way, which data sets on the mainframe contain sensitive data that need to be protected from a governance and regulatory perspective.”

As companies start to consider how their transactional business takes place and begin to embrace newer technologies like machine learning, artificial intelligence and blockchain, securing the mainframe and data-in-motion is going to be crucial.”

Addition to Ashok Reddy statement, “CA’s mainframe security solutions are designed to support data-in-motion and work across the security lifecycle - from access control to data protection to compliance.”
