MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - May 06, 2014) - PowerTech, a division of HelpSystems, today announced the release of Compliance Assessment 3.0, an enhanced version of its free security auditing tool that analyzes common security metrics and provides easy-to-understand results. The latest version verifies anti-virus protection, which is required by many government and industry regulations, and provides a detailed analysis of user security and password policy settings.
Results of the assessment highlight an organization's IBM i security vulnerabilities and identify steps that can be taken to improve data protection.
PowerTech compiles the data gathered by the Compliance Assessment audits in the annual State of IBM i Security Study. Participation in the study is voluntary and results are anonymous. In 2013, more than 200 organizations participated in the study and learned how to begin closing security and compliance gaps.
"I really appreciate Compliance Assessment," said Jericho Simmons, Capella Healthcare. "This assessment gave me key security components to focus on without having to go through hundreds of reports and spend time filtering through them."
The latest version of Compliance Assessment provides an even more detailed analysis of system security to reflect the current threats organizations face.
"Compliance Assessment 3.0 incorporates some new systems values to provide a more accurate report on user security and password settings," explained Robin Tatam, Director of Security Technologies, PowerTech. "Also, IBM has recognized the possibility of a virus existing within the IFS. We've updated Compliance Assessment to verify that scanning is active and correctly configured."
PowerTech, a division of HelpSystems, develops modular, automated security solutions for IBM i servers, helping users manage today's compliance requirements and data privacy threats.
