The Role of the Mainframe in a Hybrid-Cloud World

Some, incorrectly, argue that the days of the mainframe are past, supplanted by cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), and mobile devices. However, just as these technologies have been born, created, and evolved to become important to business operations, so has the mainframe evolved to become an indispensable part of enterprise technology strategy. An IBM Institute for Business Value study reports that 90% of IT and business executives view mainframe as a growth platform, with more than half reporting an increase in transaction volumes over the past 12 months. 

And, a survey conducted by Enterprise Management Associates demonstrates the resurgence of the Mainframe as a core part of today’s hybrid IT strategy and why 87% of execs view the platform as a competitive advantage.

Mainframe Protection for a Hybrid IT World

Business transformation is driving a more complex, hybrid IT environment and cloud-connecting the mainframe has created new threat vectors and risks along with exposing new mainframe-delivered value.

The mainframe is the gold standard for IT cybersecurity and is the ideal platform to handle these challenges. But in today’s environment, a re-evaluation of mainframe security to ensure your strategy addresses the entire mainframe security lifecycle is important to address the risk and compliance needs of your most vital data and infrastructure. Zero Trust makes it simple - start with everything untrusted and validate all users, apps, and devices asking for access before granting.
