Many organizations struggle to implement robust security systems across their diverse IT platforms, with end users forced to enter multiple credentials for each individual application, causing frustration and wasting valuable time. Additionally, for the IT team, this can necessitate multiple system updates, testing and disruption.
UniGW®, the UNICOM Universal Gateway, can help you meet your mainframe modernization challenges, accelerate digital transformation and create a fresh, new environment for users to work with their applications, all without changing a single line of code. UniGW® provides a single sign-on facility to control access to applications on the mainframe and other IT platforms throughout the enterprise. It greatly simplifies the user experience and makes it possible to deploy one multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution across the board.
We carried out some research about these issues which revealed that mainframe professionals recognize the need for MFA, due to the increase in remote and mobile working, but few organizations have fully deployed it. An integrated security strategy for both mainframe and non-mainframe environments is also viewed as the ideal scenario.
