PETERBOROUGH, England, December 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Halcyon Software, the global leader in systems management software, has announced the immediate availability of Authority Swapper 10.0, the latest version of the access control tool for the IBM i. The solution allows IT managers to grant higher levels of authority to users for temporary periods and this release adds unique functionality by providing a visible forensic trace of user activity which assists organisations to meet security compliance rules and regulations.
The major enhancement is Audit Replay, a unique screen recording capability that visually captures all user activities during their temporary access to greater security privileges. Typically, users need these higher levels of access for defined periods in order to complete specific tasks as part of their job role. By replaying the visual record of the screens visited and the user's activity, compliance teams have a visible trace and can quickly see what has happened without having to have a technical understanding of the IBM i system. This new feature significantly reduces the time taken to audit user activities.
Authority Swapper 10.0 also logs, records and stores every activity carried out by users during such sessions, all of which can be automatically exported to a secure, encrypted file for internal and external auditing purposes.
"This new release of Authority Swapper simplifies the audit process for compliance teams because they would previously have needed to review all the IBM i commands a person had used as well as have an understanding of the command language to realise the implications," commented Carole Chandler, Sales and Marketing Director of Halcyon Software. "Halcyon Software is the first to introduce this new feature which effectively provides a visual surveillance recording making the forensics much clearer to auditors without IBM i skills. It will help a wide range of organisations, including banks, insurance companies and the gaming industry, to meet their security compliance obligations."
Authority Swapper 10.0 is available as a standalone product for all organisations using the IBM i. Existing Halcyon customers of Authority Swapper can upgrade free of charge. The solution can also be cost-effectively integrated into Halcyon Software's market-leading monitoring suites for IBM i systems to give real-time intrusion detection.
