Service Retainer Program (SRP) for z/OS, VSE and VM

Did you ever wish you could have an extra set of eyes and ears to assist with your z/OS, VSE and VM systems?

InfoSec now offers z/OS, VSE and VM clients an affordable service offering to provide ad hoc systems support for their mission critical mainframe operating systems. InfoSec’s highly skilled mainframe consultants will work with client systems programming staff to provide support in the installation, implementation, maintenance and administration of their mainframe OS environments and to ensure that all software is maintained at current version and release levels. Software that is not up-to-date puts the business at risk due to potential system outages and regulatory compliance.
