BMC has announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire assets of CorreLog, Inc., which provides real-time security management to mainframe customers.

CorreLog's offerings, combined with BMC's innovative solutions in systems, data, and cost management, provide end-to-end solutions to ensure the availability, performance, and security of mission critical applications and data residing on today's modern mainframe. The transaction is expected to close later this quarter.

CorreLog delivers software solutions for security and compliance auditing professionals 
who need more advanced network and system security, and improved adherence to key industry standards for protecting data.

The combination of CorreLog's security offerings with BMC's mainframe solutions provides customers with enhanced security capabilities including:

  • Real-time visibility into security events from mainframe environments, delivered directly into SIEM/SOC systems.
  • A wide variety of security alerts, including IBM® IMS™ and Db2® event log correlation, providing up-to-the second security notifications for faster remediation in the event of a breach.
  • A 360-degree view of mainframe threat activity.

"With the addition of CorreLog, BMC brings security management into our already robust portfolio of mainframe solutions," said Bill Miller, president of ZSolutions at BMC. "CorreLog's existing integrations to all the major SIEMs – Splunk, IBM QRadar, ArcSight, LogRhythm, McAfee Enterprise Security Manager, and others – will be instrumental as we roll out the technology to our customers quickly and efficiently. CorreLog is a great fit with our mainframe solutions, and we are excited to bring our solutions together to help customers strengthen their IT security and protect their business-critical data."

"We are excited to join the BMC family, bringing real-time security management into the company's portfolio of leading mainframe solutions," said George Faucher, CorreLog president and founder. "With over 85 percent of the world's credit card transactions running through mainframes, and nearly $8 trillion in payments a year processed on mainframes, mainframe security management is critical to the success of every enterprise. BMC shares our goal of delivering visibility into all the activity on the mainframe related to data security and compliance."
