Do you know who’s looking at your IBM i
data and what they are doing with it?
Halcyon recognizes that sometimes users need to have higher, or even lower, levels of authority for their IBM i system so they can do a specific job or complete a specific task.
A user profile with more powerful privileges might only be required for a temporary period, but the real challenge is to control when users can have access and for how long and also to see what they do when they have the higher level of authority.
Authority Swapper resolves these challenges. Not only do you have a full audit trail, with the unique Audit Replay functionality, you can also playback a visual recording of the IBM i screens that users visited and see what they actually did during their session.
New Graphical User Interface – See what users are doing, in real-time
Authority Swapper also has a browser-based user interface with intuitive graphics that make it easier for
IT and compliance teams to see what users are doing in real-time. This functionality enables audit staff to
login 24/7 from any web-enabled location around the world via a laptop, tablet or smartphone so they
can respond instantly to any unauthorized user activity or view any recorded screens. With point and click
configuration, it allows staff to access multiple IBM i systems using drop-down menus without having to
manually login to each one individually.
Authority Swapper allows you to control access to confidential, sensitive or financial information by restricting access to a limited number of user profiles. It simplifies the security and system monitoring
process, and allows a wide range of organizations, such as banks, insurance companies and the gaming
industry, to meet their compliance obligations, across the globe.
Eliminates the need for audit staff to have expert knowledge of
the IBM i system
The Audit Replay feature of Authority Swapper provides a visible trace of user activity, which assists organizations in meeting security compliance rules. It delivers a convenient and easy way for auditors, who may not have IBM i skills, to understand the implications of a user’s actions. Authority Swapper ‘records’ the screens that the user visits during their authorized, temporary access and can replay the recorded screens to see exactly what the user did whenever you want to. This is beneficial if you need to show evidence of user activity to your auditors and effectively provides a visual surveillance recording.
