User Profile Management Software for IBM i
Centralized, automated administration of user profiles
IBM i (System i, iSeries, AS/400)
Simplify User Profile Management
Giving users the rights they need (and limiting access they don’t need) is a critical piece of maintaining IBM i security. Reduce the tedium involved in creating and updating user profiles with an automated, easy-to-use solution.
Onboard New Users with Ease
When you have new employees or existing employees changing roles in your organization, you can create new user profiles with the exact settings they’ll need based on that employee’s department and title—no need to start from scratch.
Ensure employees in the same roles receive identical authorities, system permissions, and partition access required to do their job. Templates provide consistency in user profile settings across the board.
Change profile settings and update profile templates on multiple systems without actually having to sign on to each system. Power Admin’s central administration menu allows you to create or change user profiles across systems.
Assign users to a role that automatically grants them the appropriate access rights, then group users based on department, position, or another relevant category. By giving you the ability to manage and update user profiles as a unit, rather than individually, Power Admin makes user administration simpler, more secure, and less prone to error.
User profile templates and auditing
Create standard user profile settings for a certain job or responsibility set. When the template is updated, Power Admin will apply changes to every user profile utilizing the template. You can also quickly identify discrepancies in your user profiles settings by comparing them to templates during an audit—and even apply remedies automatically.
Reporting and event history
Save documentation of user profiles, history, and system settings. Power Admin gives you the ability to view a history of events that have occurred across managed systems for reporting and security auditing.
Active Directory integration
Power Admin helps to streamline and simplify user profile management. Eliminate repetitive onboarding processes by syncing your Active Directory entries with Power Admin to update existing profiles, or even create new ones. Any updates to Active Directory entries will be reflected in Power Admin's People definitions, ensuring that profiles between Active Directory and Power Admin are in alignment.
Users can keep the same IBM i password across a network of systems. Changes to a synced password propagate to all other managed systems on the network for that user, which means users spend much less time maintaining IBM i passwords.
Managing Privileged Users
All the software you need to control user profiles
Providing IBM i users with the right level of system access—and no more—prevents them from performing tasks beyond their job responsibilities. Appropriate user access also reduces opportunities for accidental errors or other serious issues. Tackling the complications of user profile management with Power Admin allows administrators to automate and centralize their profile updates for greater efficiency and security.
Pair Power Admin profile management software with Authority Broker for greater control over user access. Authority Broker helps you control who has elevated access privileges and track what they are doing with that access. The software records everything a system user does while they have elevated authorities in order to protect sensitive data and prevent abuse of privileges by users. Learn more >
