Achieve two-factor authentication for your entire IBM System z mainframe network – or single business transactions – with Defender Mainframe Edition (ME). It enhances security by enabling your organization to authenticate users at three levels: application selection, business transaction or network entry. Defender ME incorporates the latest cryptographic hardware technologies and supports the most widely used password tokens.
Validate users before they enter the network by extending security defenses from the kernel of the individual mainframe systems to the network periphery.
Restrict user access to permitted applications only by using their ID and passwords to log in. And for higher level access, you can require that users provide additional personal token information at the transaction level, the application level or both.
Select a solution that fits your organization’s needs with support for any OATH-compliant token (from any OATH-compliant hardware vendor).
Provides security and reliability, while controlling costs, with support for the RSA SecureID AES token with nine-digit serial numbers and for 128-bit AES tokens. Plus, save hassle for your users with AES tokens as they no longer will need to connect to a RSA ACE®, UNIX or Windows server to be authenticated.
Accelerates message warnings (including NewView alerts) to a central host or operator console.
Supports Multiple Virtual Storage (MVS) systems with Defender’s three levels:
Broadens security outside the VTAM network front end to your users’ business transactions. Requests password validation and user ID from within the transaction to protect your organization’s sensitive transactions.
Allows your users to specify the name of the machine on which they would like to be authenticated, which is especially beneficial if your users access from both home and remote locations.

Defender Mainframe Administration Features
Moving to the cloud can offer some significant benefits, but ensuring security and achieving compliance in cloud based environments can pose challenges.
Governance, or the process of ensuring that access is correct and provable across the entire enterprise, is the pinnacle of IAM maturity.
You’ve decided that you need to ensure the security of your privileged accounts by using a privileged password safe.
Perhaps the biggest challenge in IAM is provisioning and deprovisioning in a constantly evolving enterprise that includes legacy systems, mission-critical solutions, cloud properties, and whatever the next big thing is.
Frictionless privileged access management that satisfies both your auditors and your admins
When it comes to reducing identity-related risks, identity analytics is a logical addition to an organization’s larger IAM arsenal.
