Correlog, Inc. Announces Day One Support for New IBM z14 ZR1 for Its zDefender® for z/OS Product

CorreLog zDefender® for z/OS provides out-of-box support for IBM’s new z/OS z14 ZR1 mainframe, delivering z/OS security event messages to CorreLog SIEM Correlation Server or any other Windows- or UNIX-based SIEM system in real time.

Naples, Fla, April 12, 2018CorreLog, Inc., the leader in multi-platform IT security event log management, today announced day one support for IBM’s newest ZR1 model. According to IBM, the z14 ZR1 delivers secure capabilities in a smaller, industry-standard frame, with a lower cost of entry, that can easily co-exist with other platforms in a cloud data center.

CorreLog zDefender® for z/OS can be installed on a z14 LPAR (or multiple LPARs) to intercept security and operational events for user activity on a z/OS z14 and now z14 ZR1 in real time and forward these events for up-to-the-second threat detection and alerts in CorreLog SIEM Correlation Server or any other SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) system. zDefender® will transmit data securely via TLS through the native encryption of the z14 ZR1 as it does with the current z14, running z/OS V2R3 or any supported release of z/OS. zDefender® holds certified integrations with IBM, McAfee, Micro Focus, (EMC) RSA Security Analytics, and has field integrations with all other name-brand SIEMs including Splunk Enterprise. No special considerations are warranted for customers upgrading to IBM’s latest z/OS versions.

“Eighty percent of the world’s corporate data is on mainframes, and CorreLog’s mission is to extend the real-time security benefits of SIEM to the highly coveted datasets in z/OS,” said George Faucher, CorreLog founder and CEO. “The new z14 ZR1 will bring exciting improvements to the encryption and sheer processing power of mainframe in a smaller frame, and zDefender® will keep pace with the throughput it delivers.”

CorreLog zDefender® for z/OS uses minimal system resources and can be installed in most datacenters in about an hour. The agent-based software runs as a started task in an LPAR (or multiple LPARs), monitors z/OS event logs from mainframe facilities and subsystems in real time, and forwards the logs pre-formatted for correlation to any name-brand SIEM.
