Enforcive/Enterprise Security is the single most comprehensive and easy to use security and compliance solution for IBM’s IBM i ®. With nineteen fully integrated GUI-controlled security, reporting and compliance modules, this software suite enables system administrators and auditors to easily manage security and compliance tasks efficiently and effectively.

Managing Security: Beyond the Green Screen

In response to today’s world of privacy breaches, complex regulatory requirements and evolving threats, Enforcive’s Enterprise Security suite enables security officers to identify suspicious behavior on the network, drill down to the appropriate user or object and take appropriate action quickly. The enterprise-wide perspective significantly enhances your current green screen reporting capabilities.

Graphical User Interface: Empowering Security

The Enterprise Security GUI allows users to evaluate and act on security events in real-time. IT security officers can monitor high-level policies enterprise-wide and drill down to the user or object level in a matter of seconds.

Locking Down IBM i

Enforcive/Enterprise Security gives you peace of mind regarding IBM i ® lock down. Easily protect your exit points, manage user profiles and implement group policies for all of your enterprise systems. Lockdown is first performed in “warning mode” to allow for the gathering of pertinent security events and patterns to emerge. Once thorough analysis has been conducted, security lockdown and access control can commence through the use of the following modules:

Application Access Control:

  • Comprehensive exit point control
  • Flexible user profile and group permissions
  • Authorization by IP address range
  • Granular access management down to library, object, object group and IFS
  • Account swapping for adopted authority
  • Replication of policies across multiple servers
  • File protection that prevents power user access

Application Analyzer:

  • A graphical security event analyzer with event drill down capabilities

User Profile Manager:

  • GUI-based control of native object authority

Session Time-Out & Inactive User Control:

  • Account-specific session time-out and inactive user policies to ensure proper login access with ad hoc restoration of deleted user profiles

Multiple System Management

Managing security by grouping systems, significantly reduces reporting overload and simplifies enterprise level security policy implementation via:

  • Access Control Policy Replication to remote systems
  • User Profile Propagation across systems
  • Cross-System Compliance reporting and auditing

Reports Your Auditors Will Appreciate

Enforcive’s Report Generator gives you control over integrating and presenting system data to meet the specific needs of your organization. Information such as power user activities, changes to sensitive data and system by system comparisons can be organized to best meet audit criteria using scope definitions, field selection, filter criteria, field sorting and Boolean Logic. Once created, these reports can be sent to your auditors in PDF, HTML and CSV formats.

Field-Level Auditing

Enforcive’s field level auditing provides comprehensive tracking with “Before” and “After” images for monitoring changes to sensitive data.

Template-Based Compliance Management

Demystify the difficult task of enterprise-wide compliance management and deviation monitoring with easily defined templates that address regulatory requirements such as PCI, SOX, HIPAA and GLBA.

Compliance Deviation Monitoring and Enforcement

Once compliance templates are in place, system administrators, security officers and auditors can view deviations from compliance policy throughout the enterprise. Enforcing compliance rules can be achieved with the click of a mouse. Some of the benefits of managing compliance through Enforcive’s templates include:

  • Improved Synergy between Business and Technology Units
  • Accelerated Compliance Timelines
  • Protection of Consumer Data (PCI, State Privacy Regulations)
  • Ensuring Data Integrity
  • Centralized Security Policy Enforcement (PCI, SOX, GLBA, Canadian Bill 198)
  • Streamlined Management of User Capabilities (SOX, HIPAA, Basel II, COBIT)
  • Segregation of Duties

Enabling Enterprise-Wide Compliance

Enforcive/Enterprise Security assists diverse teams in unifying their compliance efforts by eliminating redundancy and reducing the complexity of regulatory adherence. Compliance can be achieved by using:

  • Policy Compliance Manager- Template-based control of native definitions, deviation reporting and remediation
  • Alert Center- Intrusion detection System (IDS) providing instant alerts for compliance deviations
  • SOX Compliance Toolkit- Essential reports and alerts addressing Sarbanes-Oxley requirements
  • Administration Role Manager- Tailor specific security administration roles to facilitate separation of duties
  • Help Desk Assistant- Offload your help desk tasks while maintaining security and compliance requirements

Compliance Driven Alerts

Enforcive provides a host of alerting and intrusion detection tools to enable real-time security and compliance monitoring through the use of e-mail and text messages. Also included are A.I.-driven system responses such as disabling a user or revoking special authority status for particularly egregious violations.

What others say about us

“Having migrated from IBM Domino to Microsoft Office 360 (Business Cloud), we are delighted with the results – and have 1000 happy internal customers who much prefer Outlook to Domino. Life IT were flexible, fair and supportive when schedules had to change due to other Gurit projects.  We had direct access to engineers and technical staff and a dedicated team who were easy to work with.  The whole project was done in a very friendly environment and I would definitely recommend Life IT for these sorts of migration projects.”

Henrikki Häkkänen,
Global IT Services Manager — Gurit Services AG

“Without the professional and expert support of Life IT, we wouldn’t have had the quality product we now have. They gently but insistently pushed the boundaries of our assumptions during the analysis phase, getting us to challenge our mind-sets and think outside the box. They then worked seamlessly as part of our team and delivered to time and to budget – no mean feat”.

James Hacking
Head of Technical Services—HCSS

“As we’d already invested significantly in Lotus Notes and Domino, a solution that built on our existing investment and skills was ideal. Life IT understood what was important to us and delivered a solution that met our needs. We’ve already seen the number of ‘distress calls’ to the sales office reduce as our sales managers can easily access customer data off line wherever they are and we’ve had positive feedback all round about the ability to update their call reports instantly on the road.”

Colin Mosley
Head of IT—Polyflor

“The Life IT solution has provided us with a significant reduction in support and maintenance costs and is an easy to use, more resilient and more easily maintainable system. As a business that handles thousands of transactions a day from 12 different own brand or white label websites it was vital that the whole process was seamless and, with the renewal of the support and maintenance contract from our existing supplier looming, it was also vital that the project came in on deadline. Life IT achieved this and more as they provided us with additional MI functionality and supported our staff whilst transferring their skills.’

Andrew Kirkham
Head of IT Development—DLR

“Life IT are doing a great job providing a very professional and efficient service. They are almost silently efficient and just get things done – only escalating issues when necessary. Their expertise in the AS400 is a key strength ensuring a real depth to their service and they keep us up to date with advances in technology too. So from an AS400 perspective I have very little to worry about.”

John Geary
IT Service Delivery Manager

“After the restructure I was left with a critical resource gap which quickly needed filling, having worked with Life IT before I gave them a call. Their response was swift and efficient. They now work as a virtual Center Parcs help desk team providing a strength and depth of support. Their flexible working based on a time bank system is real value for money. So not only do I get an expert and efficient service, I have reduced my resource costs!”

Kerry Moakes
Head of IT—Center Parcs

“We wanted flexible support to ensure 24/7 cover and Life IT worked with us to deliver this. Life IT has become integrated into the Bentley way of working and their role has expanded into looking at the technical side of the application as well as the support. “Our relationship has been built up over a significant period of time and both sides have worked hard to develop a supplier/customer relationship that can be used as a model throughout Bentley. We are now in the position where we have a pro-active partnership, Life IT are treated as part of Bentley, and that is a credit to them”.

Chris Sayers
Senior IS Manager—Bentley Motors
