There’s power. And then there’s too much power.

Too many people with too much access to critical data – that’s one of the most common security lapses uncovered in AS/400 audits.

Using patent pending technology, Authority Broker protects sensitive corporate assets and audits access in real time. The number of profiles with special authorities can be reduced without disrupting normal business activity because the “switch profile” feature allows users to switch to higher authorities as needed. Managers can get regular audit reports of activity or even custom alerts when one of their staff switches to a more powerful profile.

Implementing Authority Broker saves time compared to homegrown tools and enforces segregation of duties. Auditors tend to frown on IT staff writing the reports on their own activity!
