Jack Henry's Gladiator ESM Goes GA

Published: March 3, 2009

by Alex Woodie

Jack Henry & Associates last month announced the general availability of Gladiator Enterprise Security Monitoring (ESM), a real-time security monitoring solution for customers of its i OS-based SilverLake and CIF 20/20 banking applications that looks for, and alerts administrators to, security threats inside and outside the firewall.

Gladiator ESM, which first debuted in October, is a hosted security system that's designed to track security and performance events that might impact the operations of SilverLake and CIF 20/20 applications. As a fully integrated IBM i OS security solution, the offering provides deep coverage of the host operating system, including the capability to capture audit events that may be missed by non-native products that are unfamiliar with the i OS platform.

"With ESM, we have truly blazed a new trail within the information security arena because there is not another vendor in this vertical market that has the ability to monitor the operating system and core application in real time," says Danny Johnston, group president of Gladiator Technology, which is a unit of Jack Henry subsidiary ProfitStars.

One happy Gladiator user is Sherry Wiggins, the senior vice president of information security at Georgia Bank & Trust in Augusta, Georgia. "The decision to become an ESM client was really a no-brainer for us since Gladiator already was providing monitoring of our servers, firewall, and network intrusion-prevention appliance," Wiggins says in a press release. "And now that Gladiator is monitoring our IBM Power System, we have a single, consolidated report that shows us what we need to be concerned with--that makes my job so much easier."
