Do More with Virtual Tape

Until now, virtual tape subsystems provided a way to read and write tape. But what if they could do more? Attend this session to learn how Luminex has revolutionized virtual tape by utilizing the FICON connection to do more with your data. The speaker discusses how this new technology allows mainframe clients to secure file transfers, share data with Open Systems applications, send data to the Cloud and Hadoop, feed your Kafka bus, and execute SAS programs all using the virtual tape interface on the mainframe.

It’s a known fact that open FTP ports are an invitation for those with malicious intent to penetrate your IT systems and harvest PCI information including names, addresses, social security numbers and credit card information. However, many companies are unaware or underestimate it’s prevalence and risk in their enterprise. If ensuring all of your file transfers are secure and shutting down open FTP ports was easy, everyone would be doing it, right? The speakers discuss the threats to your mainframe and how this simple solution from Luminex uses FICON to secure file transfers from and to the mainframe. Now, securing mainframe file transfers is easy! Attend this session to learn how.
