Application Security, Inc. Announces Database Activity Monitoring For DB2 On IBM z/OS

Partners with NEON Enterprise Software to deliver enterprise security, risk and compliance solutions

NEW YORK and AUSTIN, TEXAS - January 11, 2011 - Application Security, Inc., the leading provider of database security, risk and compliance (SRC) solutions for the enterprise, and NEON Enterprise Software, the mainframe expert for business critical information around the world, today announced a strategic alliance to deliver best-in-class enterprise SRC solutions for monitoring database activity on the mainframe.

The solution enables flexible database audit policies to support critical audit requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). AppSec’s DbProtect for DB2 on z/OS provides visibility into all activity occurring on the mainframe DB2 database including access to sensitive data and privileged user monitoring.

Monitoring database activity is a critical requirement to secure sensitive data and meet mandatory compliance regulations. By delivering a native z/OS DB2 collector covering all local and privileged activities, NEON extends the support of AppSec’s award winning DbProtect database SRC platform to organizations committed to mainframe technology. With this solution mainframe DB2 users gain a critical compliance control process to monitor real-time database activity and provide alerts of inappropriate access to sensitive data.

DbProtect for DB2 on z/OS offers significant price and performance advantages over legacy mainframe audit approaches by enabling audit policies to operate against sensitive DB2 objects without resource-intensive internal tracing facilities. In addition, audit processing is offloaded to zIIP (System z Integrated Information Processor) specialty engines, which minimizes impact on mainframe central processors and avoids increased mainframe software licensing costs. With mainframe audit and threat monitoring integrated in AppSec’s industry-leading DbProtect solution,

"A large percentage of sensitive enterprise data resides on mainframes," said Josh Shaul, vice president, product management, AppSec. "The AppSec and NEON alliance extends the enterprise platform support of DbProtect and delivers a solution to reduce the cost and complexity of securing, auditing, and monitoring mainframes."

"Mainframe users require auditing solutions built to the standards they are accustomed to," said Dan Hoffmann, director of product management at NEON. "The combination of NEON’s efficient DB2 for z/OS auditing technology and AppSec’s DbProtect will deliver database security, risk and compliance for DB2 on System z using the same user interface, policies, and procedures they use for non-mainframe databases."
