IBM PowerSC takes an innovative approach to system security with its “Trusted Boot” procedures. Most of these types of systems scan for vulnerabilities and malicious code, a process that is necessarily always one step behind threats (many of the “zero day” type) and is therefore inherently vulnerable. IBM PowerSC’s approach is to store a signed and encoded version of each secure system and then look for changes at startup.
Any environment that has been modified is immediately detected by the system and flagged as a potential threat. As an administrator, you’ll get a complete report on the health of your servers, real and virtual, along with a detailed list of any potential issues up to the file system level. In this way, you can easily detect any suspicious origin changes to respond properly and, above all, in time.
