In many environments, the enterprise mainframe performs as the backbone for the most critical daily business operations. Integrating the mainframe to the distributed environment has traditionally been very costly, and has involved proprietary solutions and protocols, locking down the business into continuously high costs of maintenance, and making it costly to extend further business processes into the mainframe.
SSH's Information Assurance Platform provides native tools for secure connectivity to IBM z/OS mainframes, that utilize the same standard protocols found natively in the distributed environment. SSH's services on the mainframe also integrate directly into the native security services and interfaces on the mainframe, making it the most cost-effective bridge between the mainframe and the rest of your business environment.
Any of the cost-saving services offered by the SSH solution on the distributed platforms, such as transparent on-the-fly FTP to SFTP conversion for securing file transfers, and transparent tunneling of VT3270 green screen applications, can now be applied to mainframe connections – greatly reducing the architecturing, re-engineering, and retraining costs incurred with traditional approaches.
Migration from proprietary legacy solutions such as Sterling Connect:Direct can be cost-effectively facilitated without altering the original file transfer jobs. Utilizing the same protocols and solutions as prevalent in the distributed environment greatly reduces the Total Cost of Ownership in a heterogeneous business environment.
SSH's end-to-end security software is also available on the virtualized Linux on IBM System z environment.
Your enterprise mainframe is finally able to perform its operations securely and seamlessly, as just another member of the enterprise team!
