    Dear Valued Customer,

    CA Technologies, a Broadcom Company, is pleased to present you with a new solution (PTF# LU00579) for CA Mainframe Security Insights Platform Version 1.0. This solution includes the following Access Report enhancements:

    • Additional system-critical libraries - In addition to access information for APF-Authorized Libraries (APFLISTs), the report includes access information for Link Pack Area Libraries (LPALISTs), Linklist Libraries (LINKLISTs), and Parameter Libraries (PARMLIBs). Extending the access information to include more system-critical library types gives you a more robust view of your mainframe security posture. The report data equips security administrators with the information that they require to develop and implement a plan to reduce access to system-critical resources to align with the principle of least privilege. 
    • Global Access - The CA Security Insights System-Critical Access Report results now displays the global access levels of each data source. Global access means providing wide access to users by applying access to the resource itself. This field helps you identify potential security exposures where users can access system-critical resources through a global access rather than through a specific user access. You can then determine whether the global accesses for the resource are valid or should be removed.
    • Data Source Status - The CA Security Insights System-Critical Access Report results now displays the status of each data source that enriches the report to drive further remediation steps.


    You can find additional details about our new enhancements here. For more information about CA Mainframe Security Insights Platform, visit the offering page here
