SpyLogix™ for Identity Forge (IdF) Gateway is a solution for continuous situational awareness and visibility for security data from mainframe security managers (IBM RACF, CA ACF2 or Top Secret), z/OS, IBM iSeries (AS400), platforms and other business application systems. SpyLogix uses standards and automation to simply security data management and reduce complexity and substantially improve ease of use. Now a single enterprise security intelligence system can support IT GRC, provide access to real-time data for forensic studies, trending analysis and used as a powerful administrative tool for rapid issue resolution.
SpyLogix obtains IBM security data using Identity Forge’s Gateway solution. An on-demand discovery step by SpyLogix records a baseline of objects, attributes and events. Objects include users, groups, datasets and resources, along with the unique attribute set stored for each objectClass. Events are recorded with data for user logins, commands,and IP address used.
While IdF Gateway provides an interface to IBM mainframe and mid-range systems for identity management, no visibility exists to actively manage identities and activities for operational systems. Enterprises need a single management approach that spans computing platforms: mainframe, mid-range, UNIX/Linux/Windows server/client, and applications. SpyLogix for IdF Gateway provides a separate out-of-band management server that provides:
Enterprise resources store security data in multiple formats, use different means/interfaces to access and use this information needed to solve problems and for IT GRC. The Identity Forge (IdF) Gateway provides a unified bi-directional means of interfacing with this disparate data using LDAP V3 protocol. For example, identity management tools can use the IdF Gateway to manage mainframe security objects.
SpyLogix is a solution for organizing and using IBM and other enterprise security data efficiently and effectively. SpyLogix leverages standardization, centralization, and automation to eliminate complexity and burdensome IT support normally associated with security data management. Security data management is automatic; data analysis and reporting is easy and flexible reducing time, money and resources needed to support enterprise security intelligence, identity assurance and IT GRC initiatives.
