The CA Product Management team is pleased to announce that starting in December 2017 all CA Endevor SCM customers can get enhanced security with the PDS Monitor feature of CA Compliance Event Manager, which they can acquire at no additional cost.
The CA Compliance Event Manager can be used to monitor any changes to CA Endevor SCM-managed data sets and identify changes that were made outside of CA Endevor SCM. When a privileged mainframe user tries to directly modify data sets in CA Endevor SCM inventory, CA Compliance Event Manager will track these alterations. CA Compliance Event Manager can also help you to identify any cases of incorrect setup of CA Endevor SCM security features.
Any changes that were introduced outside of CA Endevor SCM will be recorded in CA Compliance Event Manager’s repository and will be available for reporting. Optionally, alerts can be sent to the appropriate personnel when these types of updates occur. For example, a user can configure CA Compliance Event Manager to generate an email alert or an entry written to the system log (via WTO).
CA Compliance Event Manager PDS Monitor can help to provide that data set security rules and CA Endevor SCM Alternate ID configuration are properly defined and that any privileged user modifications to CA Endevor SCM data sets are monitored. This can help you to identify and act on cases of stolen identities or administrative access misuse.
Entitlement is limited to the PDS Monitor functionality of CA Compliance Event Manager, and only for the purpose of monitoring updates to CA Endevor SCM-managed data sets. Should customers wish to benefit from the CA Compliance Event Manager functions outside of CA Endevor SCM or from other functions of CA Compliance Event Manager, an easy upgrade path is available to bring CA Compliance Event Manager’s benefits to the entire Mainframe.
