Consolidated reporting

Provides consolidated reporting across multiple discrete or shared security systems even in mixed security system environments (CA-ACF2*, IBM-RACF*). For example, a single report could contain security events and data for multiple systems, which may be running any supported security product.

Reporting designed for Security Professionals and those responsible for the secured resources - Security Log Journal data are normalized and stored within its own specially designed Security Masterfile database, providing an easy-to-use method for retrieval of important security information in a useful format.

Repeated events may be summarized and condensed to single entries with an occurrence count. Summarized report entries are easily expandable when needed and allow for Trend and Statistical Analysis Reporting over an extended period of time.
Event Reporting provides easy-to-read modifiable and fixed reports.

Report data grouping

Security data may be grouped within logical groupings, providing the means to relate various resources, users and sources to meaningful groups that may be used as part of the report selection criteria.

Groups may also be related to "Resource Owners", which provides even higher grouping capabilities.

Report distribution

A single report may be run in distribution mode. Each data owner would receive a customized report that shows all security reporting related specific owners. This includes resources, users and sources. These reports could be routed to their recipients both manually or using any SYSOUT report management facility.

Report customization

Report formatting may be customized in the type of data presented by specifying Masterfile datanames and the actual data itself by specifying the desired criterion (such as using IF and WHEN statements).

Some reports, by design, cannot be modified in order to address auditing requirements, while others are completely customizable.
Sort and page break logic capability allows greater flexibility when designing custom reports.

Some fields may be formatted in alternate formats. For example, the date may be formatted in either USA (mm/dd/yy) or International (dd/mm/yy) formats, with the century in the classic two-character or the full four-character format.

  • Classical mainframe print format

  • CSV (Comma Separated Values) format for downloading into PC applications
