What needs improvement?

It is still the initial phase of being rolled out and it is already an outstanding solution. However, there is no question that as more companies implement CA DCD, that opportunities to improve the… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

This is a brand new area on the mainframe. Until now, compliance relied on the people owning an application to tell you what their application does and what data it accesses. If they didn't know or if… more »

I'm on the sprint team so it means that I'm constantly talking with the developers. The product comes with 133 classifiers as I stated, but I have about 168. I've added classifiers that were important to me that the product didn't have… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

This solution is brand new. There's nothing like it on the market. Because of that reason and because it's in it its infant stage, it has a lot of bite to it. When you can take any product that allows you to execute 133 different features… more »

What is CA Data Content Discovery?

CA Data Content Discovery helps you identify data exposure risks on z Systems™ by scanning through the mainframe data infrastructure. Data that is scanned includes data that may be highly regulated in multiple vertical sectors or other non-public data sources deemed critical to your business. By discovering where the data is located, classifying the data to determine sensitivity level and providing comprehensive reporting on the scan results, data can be adequately protected and exposure risks can be mitigated.
