ICE/PSWD - Your z/OS Image Sentry
Presenter - Paul Robichaux - NewEra Software, Inc.
The recent Verizon DBI* Report reveals that 81% of hacking-related breaches leveraged either stolen and/or weak user passwords? Now is the time to enlist your User Community in the common-sense defense of the z/OS mainframe perimeter. Find out how NewEra’s latest suite of tools - ICE/PSWD - can bridge that gap between your security environment and your users, especially your Privileged Users. 

ICE/PSWD can be tailored to provide real-time notifications of logons and password changes - all the time, or during off-hours, when a hacker is ready to strike – for everyone, or for just those mission-critical, Privileged Few. ICE/PSWD provides simple to manage, mainframe-based, software-only Multi-Factor Logon and Password Reset capabilities. No smart-cards, tokens, or phone-apps needed. ICE/PSWD also provides tools to aid in enforcing the creation of stronger passwords, and much more. Join us to find out how ICE/PSWD can defend your z/OS Mainframe perimeter.
