Risk Assessment

Risk Assessment

Our experts can assess the current state of your system security, compile key findings, and share recommendations.

Take the Next Step to Secure Your IBM i Data


To improve your data security, you have to know where you’re starting from. Give your security the attention it needs, starting with a full security audit.  

If your organization has never had a security policy, or you want to know where you really stand with IBM i (iSeries, AS/400) security, our experts will tell you what you need to know. An IBM i Risk Assessment, conducted by the HelpSystems security team, is the first step of any security plan. We’ll assess your system’s security vulnerabilities and provide you with a detailed report of expert findings and recommendations.

No Need to Become a Security Expert

Maybe you’ve been asked by your organization to audit your IBM i system security, but you have no idea where to start or what to look at. Letting a security expert handle the iSeries risk assessment ensures it’s done right, and saves you time so you can focus on other priorities.

Guarantee an Objective Perspective

By getting a third-party review from security experts, you can ensure that security is being objectively evaluated and that nothing will be missed or ignored. The HelpSystems security team looks at over 100 risk points so your audit is as comprehensive as possible.

Peace of Mind

Having vulnerabilities is one thing—being unaware of them is another. Knowing you’re moving in the right direction by simply identifying your security risks can provide a clear roadmap for a busy network or system administrator who was previously in the dark about their security issues.
