(Note: Latest Update – NetIQ has joined Micro Focus. NetIQ is now part of Micro Focus.)

While good security is an inherent capability of the IBM i platform, additional protection is needed to maximize its security. With multiple access points to your system, tracking and controlling access to your servers and their business-critical data is more important—and more difficult—than ever. NetIQ® Security Solutions for IBM i enable you to more proactively and easily protect your sensitive data and applications, to improve the performance and availability of services run from IBM i platforms, as well as to extend productivity through secure and streamlined user administration.

NetIQ Security Solutions for IBM i provide:
Streamlined compliance—quickly identify and archive obsolete and inactive users, easily produce audit reports, and track privileged user activity to help meet requirements such as the PCI DSS, HIPAA and EU Privacy Directive.

Proactive protection for IBM i platforms—quickly and effectively lock down your OS/400 and i5/OS systems through the application of strong access controls at both the network and object security levels

Security enforcement through time-based privileged management—implement the least-privilege model to reduce risk and protect sensitive data.

Real-time intrusion protection—respond to both attacks and policy violations with real-time intrusion protection.

Simplified user administration—reduce the time spent synchronizing user profiles and passwords with secure user administration across multiple servers.

Simplified reporting on compliance with policies and standards—allow security analysts and auditors to automatically evaluate and report on your servers with NetIQ Secure Configuration Manager™ templates.
