What is Mainframe Penetration Testing?

A mainframe penetration test is an assessment that identifies and fixes vulnerabilities within mainframe systems, using the same techniques as hackers to breach your infrastructure. According to most mainframe manufacturers, such as IBM, it is each user’s responsibility to identify and mitigate mainframe vulnerabilities, whether at the software or hardware level. Mainframe penetration testing allows organizations to uncover any opportunity for hackers to gain unauthorized access and provide actionable recommendations to mitigate each risk.

Top Mainframe Cybersecurity Risks

Our experts test your mainframe from various angles of attack in order to maximize the identified vulnerabilities. Although non-exhaustive, the following areas are generally the focal point of this type of assessment, as they cover the most common risks:
