    Abstract

    This IBM® Redpaper publication provides a security and compliance solution that is optimized for on-premises and cloud-virtualized environments on IBM Power Systems servers, running IBM AIX®, IBM i and Linux. Security control and compliance are some of the key components that are needed to defend the virtualized data center and cloud infrastructure against ever evolving threats.

    The IBM business-driven approach to enterprise security that is used with solutions, such as IBM PowerSC, makes IBM a premier security vendor in the market today.

    In this book, we explore, test, and document scenarios for managing security and compliance. These scenarios use IBM Power Systems architecture and software security solutions from IBM to help defend on-premises virtualized data center and cloud infrastructure against ever evolving threats.

    This publication helps IT and Security managers, architects, and consultants to strengthen their security and compliance posture for an IT infrastructure in all layers.
