Mainframe cyber threat protection

Model9 provides an industry-first solution for mainframe cyber threat protection and business resumption, enabling z/OS customers to create highly secured, off-platform backup copies and quickly recover mainframe data in case of an attack – all at minimal cost.

Key features

Create secured backup copies, directly to any storage attached to the network, either on-premise or in the cloud

Improve RPO with multiple, consistent recovery points, without having to expand existing DASD capacity

Avoid vendor lock-in, via a software-only, hardware-agnostic solution

Enhance data protection, with end-to-end encryption

Isolate backup copies off-platform, or use immutable (WORM) storage, for enhanced protection

Recover and restore data quickly, directly from any storage attached to the network, either on-premise or in the cloud

Optimize MSU consumption, by utilizing zIIP engines to create protected backup copies

How it works

Model9’s patented technology uses DFDSS as the data mover to create data-set backups and full-volume dumps directly on any storage attached to the network, either on-premise or in the cloud. Using pervasive immutable (WORM) storage solutions as the target for backups ensures that all copies are protected and cannot be tampered with.

While all data are compressed before leaving the mainframe, end-to-end encryption can be applied for even more enhanced data protection. In addition, Model9 supports stand-alone restore directly from any storage attached to the network, both on-premise or in the cloud, providing fast data recovery at any location – without relying on an existing mainframe operating system.

When combined with storage snapshot technologies (such as Flashcopy), Model9 also
improves RPO by enabling multiple, consistent recovery points without having to expand existing mainframe DASD storage capacity.
