Today's IBM i Security

Drawing participants from healthcare, communication, transportation, finance, and many other industries, the 2018 State of IBM i Security Study analyzed 158 servers and partitions.

Now in its 15th year, the study provides compelling insight into security weaknesses affecting many IBM i systems. Some of the most dangerous defects include:

  • Unmonitored network access
  • Lax system auditing
  • Dangerous default security settings

The alarming results show improperly configured servers where users are allowed to keep default passwords and traffic passes through exit points like FTP and SQL unmonitored.

The 2018 State of IBM i Security Study reveals exclusive information about what tools and strategies organizations are using to secure IBM i—and where they’re leaving the platform vulnerable.
