October 2, 2014

New features in Network Security 6.50 simplify navigation and provide an up-to-the-minute view of key transaction metric

Minneapolis, MN, October 2, 2014—PowerTech, a division of HelpSystems and the leader in security solutions for IBM i servers, today announced the release of a new version of their Network Security exit program solution. Network Security 6.50 introduces a responsive browser interface that improves visibility to transactions occurring on the system.

The new browser interface features advanced filtering, predictive text, and search-within-a-search functionality, reducing the time spent finding and selecting security rules.

Dashboards display important performance indicators, allowing users to identify trends and deviations from typical activity without running a report. “The real-time dashboard is definitely the most popular new feature, as it provides graphical visibility of transaction volumes,” says Robin Tatam, Director of Security Technologies, HelpSystems. “Users also love the way the new browser-based interface augments existing green screen functionality.”

Network Security’s new browser interface is also mobile enabled, allowing users to access dashboards and even apply security rules from any mobile device.

Customers already using Network Security can upgrade to this new version to access the new features. HelpSystems also offers a free, 30-day trial of PowerTech Network Security, which includes full product access and free support.
