Given the importance of security in today’s world, managing network encryption is a critical requirement for almost every z/OS environment.

Beginning with z/OS 2.3, IBM provides the capability to have an entirely new level of visibility into the encryption status of all network traffic to and from your z/OS systems. This is enabled through z/OS Encryption Readiness Technology (zERT), which makes this data available in SMF 119 records.

Because managing network encryption is such a critical need, and the potential visibility provided by zERT summary data is so well-designed and comprehensive, this presenter (Todd Havekost) considers the introduction of zERT SMF 119.12 records to be perhaps the greatest advance in SMF data since CPU Measurement Facility (CPUMF) began providing instrumentation of processor cache metrics through SMF 113 records in 2008.

View this session to learn more about the value provided by this new zERT data, and to gain the visibility your security team needs to derive great value from this data.

See how quickly you can leverage zERT data, both to identify and address any gaps you may currently have, and to provide the reporting required by auditors and compliance officers.
