WebLayers has unveiled a new IT governance software for messaging middleware IBM WebSphere MQ, which it claims to ensure the configuration and deployment of customers’ messaging infrastructures are in accordance with established guidelines and practices.
The company claims that the WebLayers distributed governors for IBM WebSphere MQ helps customers to adhere to IT policies and security and regulatory compliance mandates.
The company said that the new governors scan the IBM WebSphere MQ Queue Managers and related queues to ensure that they are in compliance, enabling users to gain a view of the way that the queue manager was configured and to mitigate potential risks before they expose the infrastructure to vulnerabilities such as security breaches or inaccurate data transmissions.
According to WebLayers, the new software comes with out-of-the-box policies for deploying WebSphere MQ Queue Managers, Transmission Queues, Channels and Messages. It features the ability to create custom policies, validate existing services and capture and display metrics related to design time flaws and policy violations using data analytics.
Jeff Papows, president and CEO of WebLayers, said: “It’s no secret that IBM WebSphere MQ is the preferred messaging middleware that dominates the financial services sector based on its ability to provide secure, guaranteed delivery of messages regardless of the size and complexity of the infrastructure.”
