Application Audit

Strengthen Mainframe Cybersecurity and Compliance with Rich User Behavior Intelligence

Application Audit, Compuware’s mainframe cybersecurity and compliance solution, enables enterprises to capture all relevant data about user access and behavior on the mainframe to mitigate cybersecurity risks and fulfill compliance mandates.

Using Application Audit, security staff can:

  • Deter insider threats by capturing and analyzing start-to-finish user session activity
  • Integrate user behavior intelligence with popular SIEM engines to analyze the overall application environment
  • Support criminal/legal investigations with complete and credible forensics
  • Fulfill compliance mandates regarding protection of sensitive data

The Value of Application Audit

  • Provides deep insight into user behavior including data viewed, by whom and which applications were used to access it
  • Enables immediate analysis through the automatic delivery of data to SIEM platforms such as Splunk® and QRadar®, either directly or in combination with CorreLog® zDefenderTM for z/OS or Syncsort Ironstream®
  • Delivers granular intelligence and reporting capabilities needed to comply with regulations such as HIPAA, GDPR, the Australian NDB scheme, as well as company security policies
  • Eliminates dependency on specialized mainframe knowledge
  • Separates the system administrator’s duties from mainframe-inexperienced auditor’s responsibilities with a web UI, so that no single person is in a position to engage in malicious activities without detection
