Free Security Risk Assessment Tool


Quickly Identify IBM i Security Vulnerabilities

Given the increasing frequency of cyber attacks, it is essential to regularly conduct real-time security risk assessments as part of a comprehensive IT security program. In fact, many compliance regulations such as PCI DSS and HIPAA require annual IT risk assessments. But not all security auditors understand the special security features of IBM i, and not all IBM i administrators have the knowledge or the time to conduct regular, thorough security assessments.

Security Risk AssessmentThat’s why the free Security Risk Assessment, developed by the security experts at Enforcive, is a valuable tool for any company that is working to proactively understand its IBM i security posture without overloading IT managers or hiring external consultants. The self-service Security Risk Assessment runs as a native job on the IBM i and makes it easy for administrators and security officers to gain a high-level understanding of their risk level.
