Use existing IAM platforms (e.g., Active Directory, NetIQ eDirectory, and RACF) to validate user credentials and grant access to host resources using group/role definitions. No schema changes are required.
Ditch risky eight-character host passwords ASAP. Leverage your IAM system to quickly and economically replace them with strong, complex passwords. Ratchet up security further with multi factor authentication.
Secure host data with SHA-256 digital signatures, AES 128/256, TLS, and cryptographic modules validated for FIPS 140-2 – one of the U.S. government's top security standards.
Log and monitor access to host resources from a central metering server. Create license pools to control access to sessions and hosts. Address specific needs with granular logging options – ensuring that you know who and when someone is accessing your critical systems.
Leave mainframe passwords in the past. Now authenticated, authorized users can skip the mainframe logon step entirely. Host Access Management and Security Server (MSS) works with the IBM Digital Certificate Access Server to do the job for them.
Gain additional critical functionality when you pair MSS with these products:
Streamline and secure your host-access operation by teaming Reflection, Rumba+, or InfoConnect emulators with MSS. Working with your Identity and Access Management (IAM) system, MSS seamlessly propagates changes to application settings and user-specific content from a central server.
Manage host-access operations from your central MSS console. Lock down 100s (or 1,000s) of far-flung desktops with ease. Grant or deny access based on group or role. Apply changes quickly to align with business needs.
Finally, you can bring your host into the IAM fold. That means you can replace weak, eight-character passwords with strong, complex ones. Implement best-fit multifactor authentication methods.
