Security, auditing, compliance and security information & event management (SIEM) tools for the IBM i

Developed specifically for the IBM i (AS400), iSecurity from Raz-Lee Security provides comprehensive security solutions to protect your IT infrastructure, applications and systems.

Recent statistics suggested that 81% of large organisations in the UK and 60% of small businesses reported having had a security breach. On average this equated to 16 breaches at large organisations and six at small businesses, with an average cost of between £600,000 to £1,500,000 and £65,000 to £115,000 respectively for the worst breach.

Globally, The Centre for Strategic and International Studies estimates losses to be in the region of $375 – $575 billion.

Businesses of all sizes want to be able to protect their sensitive customer information, protect their organisation’s reputation, prevent downtime, protect their commercial IP and comply with UK and international laws and regulations.

No wonder that 76% of senior managers and board directors in large organisations and 82% in small businesses view information security as a high or very high priority.

Cyber security and risk should now be an everyday consideration.

Proximity provides security software implementation, configuration and assessments in the UK and Ireland as part of a partnership with Raz-Lee Security, a leading international provider of security, auditing and compliance (SOX, PCI, HIPAA, etc.) solutions.

Configurable alerts and reports can be sent to pre-defined users in a number of different formats. AP-Journal Business Analysis is easy to use with minimal set and disk space.

Assessment

If you are looking for a program to provide in-depth analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of you IBM i server security, Assessment is a Windows-based solution highlights any vulnerabilities, grades them and then outputs a detailed report.

Audit

For QAUDJRN auditing, monitoring and reporting for IBM i, Audit gives a real-time, integrated view of all audit journal files and security-related events. Audit also enables you to log QSHELL for QSH and PASE. Audit trails can be displayed are displayed in simple, graphical formats with accompanying explanations for each entry to aid quick interpretation of statistical information. Crucially Audit also comes complete with a report generator and scheduler with over 200 in-built templates for reporting both common and abnormal server activity.

Authority on Demand

Having flexible control over user authorities and access to business-critical application data and processes can be a potential problem for IBM i system audits. Authority on Demand provides real-time auditing capabilities of access rights and can change, or even add authority rights to existing user access levels. It then logs all activities performed by the user whilst operating at that higher authority level.

 Capture

Capture gives you the ability to silently record and playback 5250 green screen user sessions on the IBM i. Screens are captured and stored in real-time and you have the option to notify users that their session is being recorded when the login. Recording screens in this way can be extremely useful in helping technical support / HelpDesk when playing back screens. Capture is fully integrated with Audit, so log text can be displayed alongside captured screens. The tool has been recently extended to provide the ability to extract business items such as customer, item and account.

Central Administration

Central Administration provides you with the ability to manage multiple systems from one single control point. If you are operating multiple systems or LPARs, you can define the tool once and it copies across. Reports can be scheduled to run automatically from both GUI and green screens across the IBM i network. Data is merged and shown as a single view.

Change Tracker

As the name implies, Change Tracker tracks the changes made in production libraries and the IFS at both object and source levels without requiring input from the operator.

Command

iSecurity Command enables you to control the validity of your IBM i system, plus user CL commands and parameters.

Compliance Evaluator

Native & Integrated File System (IFS) Object Security

Native and IFS object security in iSecurity gives administrators the ability to plan and define security levels per object based on name and type. They will also check for inconsistencies between actual and planned object security settings, making adjustments to ‘planned’ as required.

Password & password reset

iSecurity’s Password provides standard IBM i password management as well as tools to block the use of weak and site-specific passwords. The reset function provides self and assisted forgotten password support both natively and web-based.

Screen

Provides your IBM i users with additional protection for unattended workstations. Two levels of protection are provided that are both highly configurable: pause and request password, or a full disconnect.

System Control

System Control identifies and responds if any change events happen to your IBM i system, such as those involving CPU and disk space, or any out of the ordinary or critical systems behaviour occur.

User & system value replication

As more and more organisations consolidate their IBM i servers they are able to run production, test and development environments. As a result there is a need to sync user profile definitions, user passwords and system values across these systems. ISecurity enables replication rules to be configured for user profiles, passwords and parameters to be replicated. System values can be replicated individually, by type or across *ALL and then set against a particular value, a snapshot of all system values, or the best values defined in the Compliance Evaluator.

View
