October 21, 2014

New tool enables organizations to achieve higher levels of compliance when conforming to global regulatory requirements

Halcyon Software, a global leader in multi-platform systems management software, today announced the immediate availability of Exit Point Manager, a rule-based security solution for users of IBM i on IBM Power Systems servers.   This new tool expands Halcyon Software’s portfolio of security solutions and enables organizations to achieve higher levels of compliance when conforming to global regulatory requirements.

According to Carole Chandler, Sales and Marketing Director of Halcyon Software, “Exit Point Manager has been developed from the user perspective and provides a practical solution by offering an additional layer of protection on top of native IBM i security.   This is not simply a ‘check the box’ compliance solution. It meets user requirements for an easy to deploy, transparent security solution that does not impact on daily operations.  It provides a valuable layer of added protection while enabling users to continue working without unnecessary and frustrating interruptions.”

Halcyon Software’s new security tool  protects the main Exit Points on IBM i platforms and uses a flexible range of criteria to determine system access including users, IP address, date, time and other datasets.  It logs all activity and provides a complete audit trail enabling organizations to demonstrate compliance with  corporate and regulatory security policies. 

“Exit Point Manager enables the adoption of ‘best practice’ system-wide security policies to protect the business as systems are increasingly required to interface with the outside world and accessed by users from different locations using a variety of mobile devices including laptops, tablets and smartphones,” continued Chandler.  “It blocks unauthorized access and protects against actions such as the copying and deletion of confidential data files.”

Halcyon Software’s new security tool includes a range of templates that can be used by organizations to speed up deployment. 

Exit Point Manager integrates with Halcyon Software’s monitoring and automation suites and adds to the company’s portfolio of security solutions, including Authority Swapper, Audit Journal Manager and Password Reset Manager, enabling organizations to maintain compliance through continuous system monitoring and management.
