  2. 2. SIMPLIFY NETWORK AND APPLICATION MANAGEMENTServicePilot® NBA for z/OSBy combining network and application data flow, NBA for z/OS Real-Time Intrusion Detection and Complianceidentifies the “who” behind the “what” using Network BehaviorAnalysis (NBA) mechanisms to pinpoint the source of application NBA for z/OS uses Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology to detectperformance problems. This ability to establish a direct linkage between suspicious connections on the network. DPI can detect meaningfulindividual users and user sessions to specific host IP addresses related changes in behavior that indicate threats and/or malware. This important feature looks for patterns within a packet to search forto transactions provides a complete audit trail. You can determine specific content in the data from a defined point and triggers awho is responsible for, as well as who is affected by, an unexpected response according to the search result. The user may define behaviorevent. ServicePilot NBA for z/OS can also profile and analyze the typical rules that associate action(s) with conditions applied on a resource tobehavior of an application and the underlying network. If there are trigger an alert. NBA for z/OS will analyze network traffic to determinemeaningful changes in application behavior and usage patterns, NBA the similarities with the user-defined set of rules and triggers withfor z/OS will pinpoint a potential problem and automatically inform you conditions applied to network, applications, and system availabilityof the most likely cause, thereby reducing the time to resolution. and performance (e.g., bad application response time, bandwidth consumption). This feature simplifies and automates trending analysis. When the conditions are met, ServicePilot NBA for z/OS notifies operators by generating real-time alarms. These alarms are displayed via a Web browser and may be displayed in Log file, WTO message, SNMP trap, Syslog packet, and email. Key security personnel can then be alerted in real-time when certain patterns are identified or an unauthorized device or activity is detected. Operators can then see and analyze meaningful changes in behavior and react before abnormal behavior affects or disrupts end-users. 24 Hours’ EE (Enterprise Extender) StatisticsNBA for z/OS provides advanced and efficient IP tracing capabilities. Aprobe captures and provides packet data for real-time display, so thereis no need to the stop the trace and wait for packet reformatting. Nothird-party tool is required for trace collection, so the implementationis simple and the product can run in any z/OS environment. The tracedata is automatically recorded for subsequent re-run and analysis withadvanced filtering (host traffic, response time, and error analysis). Youcan access and analyze the data when you want with a simple click on Application and Conversation Summarya filter. NBA for Z/OS provides further security for the network to protect sensitive hosts. By adding ServicePilot NBA for z/OS to other security technologies, IT staff can have security oversight across the enterprise network with true, real-time feedback of the status of security. DPI technology also helps trouble-shoot specific transaction data errors and defines where to start searching for a pattern within a packet to decrease time-to-repair. It provides full diagnostics for Enterprise Extender/HPR, OSA, FTP, Sysplex, and Telnet. The software also meets corporate compliance requirements and provides transparency across functional areas of operation. NBA for z/OS creates an auditable, automated means for enforcing your organization’s policies, such as automatic alerts and historical reporting to document improper use of the network. Your organization can also be more compliant with SLAs, because the tool detects unauthorized devices, applications or users, and contributes significantly to reducing compliance costs.

  3. 3. SIMPLIFY NETWORK AND APPLICATION MANAGEMENTServicePilot® NBA for z/OS Statistics are dynamically displayed on a running 24-hour basis. A user is able to quickly identify and drill down to view anything that may have occurred during a prior 24-hour period without having to generate a report. You can view statistics on several IP stacks on one screen and drill-down to instantly view the tracing on any resource. This feature aids in fast problem tracking and resolution. You can view host and network response time for IP resources, such as local and remote applications, IP networks and TCP connections. Standard reports also provide detailed information regarding traffic, response time and errors for each TCP connection as well as SNA status. ServicePilot NBA for z/OS allows for the generation of on-demand and/or batch reports on relevant resource or user behaviors. All of the information and reports accessible from the Web user interface for one or more LPAR(s) can be generated as a report in PDF format. The batch reports are dependent upon the duration of information retention set by the administrator. All of the data for z/OS and TCP/IP activity and FTP Detail performance information can be stored and archived. The statistics can be exported and downloaded manually or automatically via emailEffective Reporting and SMF files.
