RENO, Nevada—Bytware, Inc., developer of monitoring, notification, and security solutions for System i, AIX, and Linux, announced today the addition of a graphical user interface to its object-based StandGuard Network Security 3.0. Recognizing the evolution of System i and the needs of administrators, Bytware last year rebuilt StandGuard Network Security with an object-based approach and has now enhanced this latest version with a graphical user interface that offers additional ease-of-use and reporting capabilities unique to a windowed environment.
Along with the features available through the green screen, additional features provided by the new GUI include: a robust event viewer; a new time-saving browser; export capabilities to enhance analysis of security data; and the ability to search and filter SQL statements, providing users with a new method for studying security on their system.
The new browse feature allows administrators to add users, IFS objects, database objects, programs, and commands using existing lists on the system, significantly cutting the time required to establish and maintain security policies.
Through the new event viewer users can reorder columns, set display colors, leverage advanced search technology, and export events in either CSV or TXT format. StandGuard Network Security’s export capabilities give System i administrators the ability to target specific events and analyze them more thoroughly, enhancing the effectiveness of security and aiding in investigation and regulatory compliance.
“We are very excited to be launching a graphical user interface for StandGuard Network Security that mirrors all the features accessible through our green-screen interface, as well as expanding further our extensive reporting and exit point security functionality, and multiple system management,” said Bytware President Christine Grant.
StandGuard Network Security is an object-based network and exit point security solution that is consistent with i5/OS object security design, providing a supplemental layer of public and private authorities to resources on System i. Its object-based approach reduces the time and effort required to create and manage authorities, reduces configuration errors, and provides a more usable audit trail compared to inferior, transaction-based designs.
The new StandGuard Network Security GUI is available now and is free of charge to existing StandGuard Network Security customers. To upgrade, contact Bytware at 800.932.5557.
