IBM approves iSeries(TM) AS/400's information security solution from Above Security

    MONTREAL, Nov. 13 /CNW Telbec/ - IBM approved Above Security's CSC2
application as an auditing engine for the log monitoring and information
security incident management of the iSeries(TM) (AS/400(R)) mainframe.
Corporations dealing within the financial, health care, insurance and banking
sectors as well as publicly traded companies are currently struggling to
attain compliance with various regulations. These corporations can now benefit
from Above Security's solution that facilitates standards compliance to
information security governance rules.
    Above Security, helped by one of its customers and by IBM, released the
CSC2 application, a solution allowing the support of various controls imposed
by norms such as Sarbannes-Oxley, HIPAA, GLBA & Basel II. On every specific
interval, CSC2 logs in the databases of the AS/400(R) and then centralizes,
pre-analyzes, compresses, and presents the audit information in a centralized
and in a normalized fashion.
    CSC2 can generate alert and automated action, based on events observed
within the audit repository to prevent fraud, attack, hacking, to support
prompt investigation and troubleshooting.
    "Thousands of banks, insurance companies and manufacturing groups are
using IBM AS/400(R) worldwide and most of them aim to attain the regulation
discussed before. With our application, the customers won't have to modify
their system; we basically build over what's available. That represents low
overhead, low integration cost, fast deployment," says Martin Dion, Chief
Technology Officer at Above Security.
    Organizations as well as corporate executives who do not formally provide
answers to corporate governance regulations might face fines, prison,
corporate image and brand devaluation.
