Universal Automation Center is an industry-awarded solution for today’s challenging IT processing centers. The primary, and only user interface is 100% web-based and can be accessed and used, by admins as well as scheduling staff, from any web-enabled device, including your smartphone. The Universal Controller can run on Linux, Unix, or Windows. In addition, we have a variety of agents that can manage workload across the IT environment, including virtualized servers or cloud computing – where database and application tasks are base functionality, not licensed servers.

Universal Automation Center was designed to exploit the latest Web 2.0 technology to provide a useable interface for IT and business users alike. Workflows can be constructed for logical business processes and can include various types of tasks, with different run frequencies, different start times, or a number of other variations designed into a single workflow. This can drastically reduce the number of definitions that must be maintained with other vendor products.

This easy-to-use automation tool is enabling the data center, application developers, and database administrators as well as other infrastructure personnel to simplify their daily tasks, and even accelerate the delivery of new business functionality. More …


Our z/OS agent allows customers to eliminate MIPS/MSU-based pricing for the mainframe workload and also includes an integrated z/OS restart/rerun capabilities, at no additional charge. Enablement for the latest technology, like virtualization and cloud computing does not come in the form of acquired and/or bolted-on products, which often come with an extra price tag and maintenance cost. This capability are natural features due to the architecture of Universal Automation Center, with new agents auto-registering with the controller, eliminating configuration effort and enabling immediate processing.

Track user access to SAP data in yout SIEM

with the CorreLog Agent for SAP.



CorreLog provides cross-platform IT security log management and event log correlation. The solutions provide best-in-class, real-time event log collection across both distributed and mainframe systems. Event logs generated from CorreLog Agents are ready-format for the CorreLog SIEM Correlation Server or any SIEM correlation engine.

The CorreLog Agent for IBM z/OS

The CorreLog Agent for IBM z/OS expands the role of your corporate IT security system – whether the CorreLog Enterprise Server or other SIEM (Security Information & Event Management) collector – to include true real-time monitoring of mainframe SMF messages, empowering you with new and important capabilities for enhanced visibility into your mainframe user activity. Complete your centralized log management and/or SIEM strategy leveraging this powerful and unique real-time mainframe security and compliance component.

For many large organizations, one or more IBM z/OS mainframes constitute a strategic capital investment for their most mission-critical applications and processes. The CorreLog Agent for z/OS enables these organizations to combine z/OS SMF events with SIEM Syslog data, giving IT security personnel a complete system-wide vantage point for cyber-threat and security breach alerts. With SIEM platforms existing predominantly in distributed environments, the CorreLog Agent for z/OS allows organizations to include mainframe event log data in real-time for a unified, multiplatform view of enterprise security event data in a single console.

In concert with SIEM monitoring applications such as the CorreLog Enterprise Server or competing solutions, the CorreLog z/OS Agent allows the user to view mainframe SMF security, database and TCP/IP events, alongside events from Windows, UNIX, Linux, routers, firewalls, and other IT assets and can alert IT security personnel of cyber-threats before they happen.

The CorreLog z/OS Agent installs quickly, uses minimal resources, and does not require extensive training, ongoing maintenance or administration. The Agent is easily configured, allowing users to select from a myriad of events including TSO Logons, Production Job ABENDs, TCP/IP Connections, FTP File Transfers, RACF, CA Top Secret, ACF2, and DB2 accesses. Out of this event log data, security systems administrators may filter further by sub-categories and receive only the data relevant to security threats. This filtering capability streamlines data flow to SIEM system consoles without compromising network bandwidth.

The z/OS Agent also operates within the constraints of increasing compliance regulations such as PCI DSS, FISMA, HIPAA, NERC and Sarbanes-Oxley.

CorreLog Agent for SAP


Real-time Syslog conversion and normalization of SAP messages

Global businesses are running their most critical applications on the SAP platform. Users accessing services such as CRM, ERP, Asset Management, Financial Management, Human Resources, Procurement and Product Lifecycle Management and Supply Chain can number in the thousands at a large enterprise. The potential for cyber threat across such a wide swath of user activity is great and the need to track user behavior paramount.

The CorreLog Agent for SAP monitors system access to determine user activity related to system and profile changes, including both logon and logoff events. This allows the system administrator to keep track of who is accessing the system by the activity they log while in the system.

The Agent takes existing core SAP message related to user logon/logoffs, transactions, user profile edits/changes, etc., converts them to Syslog in real time, then normalizes the data for inclusion into the CorreLog Enterprise SIEM or any other SIEM system. Additional SAP messages can be included for conversion with and easy-to-configure Windows-based GUI, depending on the SIEM requirement.

The Agent takes minutes to install and includes all the function of the CorreLog Windows Agent (event log monitoring, log file monitoring, remote configuration/deployment) within a very small footprint that utilizes very little system resource. It can operate in both real-time and batch file mode and includes a comprehensive installation manual along with additional utilities to format additional SAP information.

Libelle solutions allows you to  automate and speed up the processing of SAP system copies. System copies can be produced in a fraction of the time compared to manual methods.

No more headaches when performing SAP system copies thanks to automated software from Libelle. SAP system copies must be scheduled weeks in advance before execution. The delivery of system copies can be complex and time consuming and require several man days of manual work each time they are produced. Producing system copies requires specific expertise and can block key staff capacity due to the large amount of manual intervention. In addition, the entire process is prone to error and costly in complex environments.

LSC allows you to easily perform fully automated and optimized SAP system copies with very low manual overhead and quick processing. The result is consistent and error free, due to a maximum degree of automation. The delivery time is shortened considerably, reducing the processing cost to a minimum.

Migros uses the database mirror from Libelle. In the event of a crash, a switch is made immediately to the time-deferred mirroring system, and the last error-free status can be reconstructed without data loss. This offers, for one, the optimum protection in the event of an emergency, but it also can be used as a recovery solution, as a data recovery operation can be done significantly more quickly than a “restore from tape.”
