The IBM iSeries Security provides a suite of tools to manage all systems and LPARs from a single console, runs natively on OS400, allows for unlimited consoles, and adds object level security controls and auditing for users accessing your iSeries via the network with PC applications. Exit programs provide object level security controls and auditing not available from the OS400, and add an additional level of security for applications accessing the iSeries via TCP/IP. Audit reports that you previously ran from green screen are given steroids with its powerful boolean logic, predefined filters and a robust wizard that helps build reports with the desired fields, and will distribute them via email in PDF, CSV, HTML or TXT format and archive them in an IFS folder which can be shared on a network drive.
