CALGARY, ALBERTA AND HOUSTON, TEXAS (PRWEB) JANUARY 28, 2021
MainTegrity Inc., the leader in mainframe file integrity monitoring solutions, today announced that it has entered into a MarketZone partnership with BMC, a global leader in software solutions for the Autonomous Digital Enterprise. Becoming a BMC MarketZone partner will enable BMC to co-sell MainTegrity's FIM+ solution to BMC customers. The partnership makes MainTegrity a preferred vendor for BMC for mainframe security.
"MainTegrity's FIM+ will help mainframe customers ensure they can detect and neutralize malicious attacks, protect against ransomware events and improve regulatory compliance."
FIM+ provides fully integrated file integrity monitoring technology for mainframes, which is a natural fit in the security and automation umbrella BMC provides with its Automated Mainframe Intelligence solutions. Together, MainTegrity and BMC are positioned to outfit customers with the tools essential to modernizing the mainframe. It is essential that financial and industrial companies, government centers, and other large organizations prioritize continuous protection of their mainframe environments against vulnerabilities, malicious actions, and data theft.

With better security clients can improve compliance with PCI/DSS, NIST cyber security framework, GDPR and other regulatory standards" says Al Saurette, President of MainTegrity. "By working with BMC, we can reach an immense market, helping customers resolve exposures that hackers can exploit on virtually every mainframe."
Long the backbone of IT data processing, IBM mainframes process 29 billion transactions per year and handle 87% of all credit card transactions. This massive server remains critical to each organizations' goals and applications, which ultimately demands modern security software to defend its integrity. With the integration of the BMC mainframe security offerings, customers will be able to implement a suite of technology solutions that:
- Detects and neutralizes malicious attacks
- Protects against ransomware

For financial and industrial companies, government centers and other large organizations, this solution, provided by BMC and MainTegrity, is a critical factor in hardening their security posture. As hackers continue to be more aggressive, the need for FIM+ becomes more crucial.
"The addition of MainTegrity's file integrity monitoring solution to our robust suite of security solutions heightens the value that BMC AMI Security delivers customers in addressing compliance requirements for our clients," says John McKenny, Senior Vice President of Strategy & Innovation, ZSolutions Business Unit at BMC.
