NewEra Software announces the addition of OPER to its Image Control Environment (ICE). OPER provides capabilities in parallel to The Control Editor (TCE) by adding additional control and security over operator and ESM commands. It also provides access security to commands and enforces the use of descriptors for documentation. Email notification, SEIM interface and the updating of Cloud based reporting when commands are used is also provided. A Trusted z/OS Computing Base is built on System Integrity and Security. We should all consider it self-evident that z/OS System Integrity is enriched by the inclusion of the user as an active participant in the overall z/OS mainframe Security Paradigm. Consider this: in real time, the Only Person who can ACTUALLY know if YOUR logon credential is being used legitimately is YOU! Not a SIEM, not the Help Desk, certainly not an SMF record of any type. Just YOU and YOU alone! ICE/PSWD can help you better protect your login credentials with a software only solution.
