Enforcive Security Risk Assessment

 

Quickly Identify IBM i Security Vulnerabilities with Real-Time, Fully Controlled Cyberattack Testing

The Enforcive Security Risk Assessment software tool makes it easy for IBM i administrators and security officers to conduct real-time, fully controlled penetration attempts on your IBM i environments—either from within your network or via the Internet. At the end of the test, any IBM i security vulnerabilities—along with specific recommendations for remediation—are clearly presented on-screen and within a variety of reports.

Given the increasing frequency of cyber attacks, it is essential to regularly conduct real-time risk assessments as part of a comprehensive IT security program; in fact, many compliance regulations such as PCI DSS and HIPAA require annual IT risk assessments. But not all security auditors understand the special security features of IBM i, and not all IBM i administrators have the knowledge or the time to conduct regular, thorough security assessments. That’s why Security Risk Assessment is an invaluable tool for any company that is working to proactively improve its IBM i security posture but doesn’t want to overload IT managers or hire external consultants.

 

Clear, Actionable Security Assessment Reports for IBM i

Security Risk Assessment automatically checks all of your IBM i system definitions as they relate to security and then provides a clear explanation of what these definitions mean while detailing recommendations for necessary changes. The tool provides a management summary that helps non-technical administrators and managers easily understand the state of their IBM i security while also delivering a variety of detailed, actionable information that technical staff can use to address vulnerabilities.

Some examples of reports included with Security Risk Assessment:

  • Management summary
  • System values
  • Default passwords
  • Disabled users
  • Command line users
  • Distribution of powerful users
  • Library authorities
  • Open ports
  • Exit-point programs
  • And many other key security metrics
