Feature spotlights

Privileged-user-policy monitoring and enforcement protects data

Prevent noncompliant administrative commands from privileged users that can change or delete all profiles within their scope. Automatically verify command keywords against your specified policies as soon as a command is issued to help prevent user errors, regardless of whether the command is initiated from a batch job, or the operator console.

Retrieves command information quickly

zSecure Command Verifier stores changes to profiles in the RACF database, so you can easily discover when a change to a profile was made and which administrator issued a command. Retrieves information on changes in seconds, saving hours of labor.

Defines and determines different types of IT risk assessments

Specify policies using RACF profiles to determine the type of verification to be performed and to define actions when a noncompliant command is detected, including prevention of command execution. Generate immediate, near real-time alerts if certain commands are issued, helping to prevent system outages caused when administrators issue incorrect commands. Send messages when commands are changed. Grant user access to specific commands.
