Security Remediation

When IBM i risks have been identified on your system, we can address them for you to increase your data protection and position your organization for a more secure future.

Correct System Vulnerabilities with Help from the Experts

Identifying the vulnerabilities on your IBM i is critical. But now that you know what's wrong, how can you close the security gaps without inadvertently causing new problems?

It's common to leave a thorough security audit with a long list of issues to address. What's often missing is a clear way to implement the necessary changes.

If you lack the staff or the expertise to implement your IBM i security architecture, HelpSystems consultants can remediate your system vulnerabilities for you, following a Risk Assessment and designing your Security Architecture.

Expertly Close Security Gaps

Leveraging the expertise of our security team to address your security risks gives you peace of mind, knowing you’re doing what’s best to protect your organization.

Ensure Changes Are Executed Correctly

Working with seasoned security professionals removes the worry that junior or less experienced team members will incorrectly execute your plan requirements.  

Position Your Company for Future Success

At the end of security remediation, your new security architecture will be tested, approved, and following best practices. Furthermore, we will educate members of your team to ensure they have the knowledge necessary to maintain the security scheme going forward.

The Security Remediation Process

While every remediation project is different, our security experts may perform actions such as the following as part of security remediation:

Test your new security architecture on a test system

Re-architect user authorities and special authorities

Make approved changes to user profiles and special authorities

Roll out application changes 

Develop, test, and roll out Integrated File System (IFS) changes

Set up regular monitoring and reporting on security events from the audit journal
