Audit is a cutting-edge security auditing application that examines events in real time, and triggers alerts and other responsive actions to potential threats. It contains a powerful report generator with over one hundred pre-fabricated built-in reports. Audit is available in the native “green-screen” interface or a state-of-the-art GUI version.
Recent regulations concerning business transparency have placed security auditing as a key component of any organizational IT security program. Simply creating a security policy and purchasing security software tools is not enough. Management must ensure that security polices and procedures are properly implemented and enforced. In addition, managers must be able to evaluate and test the effectiveness of these policies on a continuing basis.
Audit solves that problem and more. It enhances native iSeries auditing by adding several robust new features and providing a user-friendly interface for working with the large, often confusing number of system values and parameters. Audit is the only security auditing product available that is designed from the ground up for ease-of-use by non-technical personal, such as outside auditors and managers. The user interface provides clear explanations for all audit types, parameters, ﬁelds and ﬁeld values.
Audit employs real-time detection to identify security events as they occur and record details in a history log. 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 immediate corrective actions with the optional iSecurity Action module.
Audit offers the most powerful and ﬂexible reporting features available today. It includes more than eighty ready-to-run queries and reports. In addition, the powerful Query Wizard allows users to quickly and easily create audit reports without programming. Queries employ robust selection criteria such as AND/OR, equal/not equal, greater/less than, like/not like, included in list, etc. Only the information that you really need is included. Report formats are fully customizable. In addition, Audit logs display security audit data in a standard message format with the actual data embedded in the message.
