Why do you need an IBM i security assessment?

IBM i is one of the most secure platforms available – which may be why you chose it. However, without the right configuration and ongoing management, you may be overconfident in your security.

IBM i is secure-able, meaning that to be secure, the platform requires ongoing inputs, such as policy development and enforcement, user profile management, virus and malware scanning, and security event journaling and escalation.

An IBM i security assessment if the first step to securing the platform. It uncovers vulnerabilities, identifies actions required, and provides guidance for prioritizing remediation.
