OLYMPIA, WA (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
Townsend Security, a leading authority in data privacy, announces Alliance LogAgent Suite, a major feature-packed addition to its IBM i (AS/400) system logging software Alliance LogAgent. New tools allow administrators to selectively monitor data access and change activity at the column or field level. Sensitive data in all types of applications can be monitored without changes to those programs, or changes to user accounts. IBM i security administrators can implement data monitoring quickly with no disruption to on-going operations.
These important enhancements will give IBM i security administrators new tools to monitor the health and security of their systems, and to proactively meet compliance regulations. Any IBM i administrator in a regulated industry such as finance, medical, retail, pharmaceutical, or government agency can easily meet the challenges of a wide variety of laws and regulations.
The significant new features include:
● Monitor read and/or change access by column
● Monitor multiple columns in one database table
● User white lists for table and column access
● Detect and alert on changes to database tables that affect monitoring
● Set floor and ceiling values for events
● Optionally log hashed value of changed data
● Query system log history for changed data
● Route security events to QAUDJRN and to SIEM application
● Format security events to Syslog standard or Common Event Standard
”Our IBM i customers face a complex set of regulations and security logging requirements.” said Patrick Townsend, CEO & President. ”The new Alliance LogAgent Suite will let them move forward with the confidence that they can grow their business, meet compliance regulations, and secure their critical applications and databases.”
