Audit & Compliance Reporting
What is iSecurity Audit?
Recent regulations concerning business transparency have placed security auditing as a key component of any organization's IT security program. Simply creating a security policy and purchasing security software tools is not enough. Management must ensure that security policies and procedures are properly implemented and enforced and be able to evaluate and test the effectiveness of these policies on a continuing basis as well as be able to monitor for suspicious activity and generate real-time alerts to IT staff.
iSecurity Audit solves that problem and more. iSecurity Audit is a system security audit module that enhances native IBM i auditing by adding several robust new features, and providing a user-friendly interface for working with the large, often complex, number of system values and parameters. iSecurity Audit is the only security auditing product available for Power Systems including AS/400, iSeries, and System i that is designed from the ground up for ease-of-use by non-technical personnel, such as outside auditors and managers. The 5250 green screen interface or desktop user interface provides clear explanations for all audit types, parameters, fields, and field values.
iSecurity Audit employs real-time detection to identify security events as they occur and record details in a log file. This log enables you to exploit the powerful query and reporting features that are included with the product. More importantly, real-time detection triggers alerts and/or takes immediate corrective action. Our system security Audit module offers the most powerful and flexible IBM i Audit reporting features available today. It includes more than 200 ready-to-run report templates.
