Lockdown: Zero-Trust Architecture with Zowe’s API Mediation Layer (Video)

By | February 24, 2023

Protecting software systems from malicious actors and attacks has always been critical to the enterprise, and the challenge of securing software has only increased as the use of software expands to meet new business demands and attract new employees. This protection is nowhere more important than in the systems of records embodied by the Mainframe. Zero-trust architecture is an industry-leading response to this security challenge, and it raises the security bar without compromising on user experience. Zowe, an Open Source project built for mainframe, was created with zero-trust in mind, and Zowe’s API Mediation Layer is the zero-trust enforcement behind API access to Mainframe system APIs.

Jakub Balhar, Zowe TSC Chair and Principal Productt Owner at Broadcom, shares how Zowe’s API Mediation Layer implements the zero-trust architecture using standard mainframe security resources, and how to best configure Zowe’s API Mediation Layer to keep your business secure in this Open Mainframe Summit video.
