Protecting Your Critical UNIX Files on z/OS
Should you be doing more to protect your critical UNIX files on z/OS? Changes being made could potentially affect the operational integrity of the applications that require those UNIX files. Yes, you have those protected by your ESM product, but what if a change is made by a valid user? When are you informed of that change? Who is informed of the change? Was a backup or recovery point made of the old and new file content? Was the change made to the content of the file or to the Permissions assigned to the file, or both?
See how the Integrity Controls Environment (ICE) can provide that extra level of protection to your most critical UNIX files.

Thursdays at 12 pm EST (9 am PST) & 2 pm EST (11 am PST)
