Get Windows-based Administration for the z/OS Security Server (RACF) & DB2

Vanguard SecurityCenter™is the first Windows-based graphical user interface for IBM's Security Server™ and DB2 security administration.

Running under Windows 2000, 2003, 7 or XP, SecurityCenter is the ideal solution for decentralized security administration. SecurityCenter graphically presents hard-to-find security information, enabling the experienced security administrator to work more efficiently. Point-and-click and drag-and-drop operations replace dozens of native commands. SecurityCenter also provides an easy, intuitive training environment that brings less experienced staff members up to speed quickly.

How it works

Vanguard SecurityCenter permits security administrators to decentralize appropriate tasks to departmental level personnel by offering them a view limited to those users, groups and resources within their responsibility. This can dramatically improve problem resolution. And it removes some of the routine tasks from security administrators, giving them time to concentrate on more important tasks, such as overall security strategy.

  • In security administration, the time saved by means of automating or simplifying routine tasks directly translates into cost savings. Vanguard SecurityCenter expedites daily Security Server and DB2 security tasks, reducing associated costs and increasing accuracy.
  • Data is entered using familiar Windows-style features such as drop-down lists, radio buttons and check boxes.
  • Many routine tasks, such as connecting users to groups, can be accomplished automatically by dragging a user icon onto a group icon. Vanguard SecurityCenter automatically generates the correct commands to accompany each action.
  • Vanguard SecurityCenter presents information in an intuitive, easy-to-understand manner and automatically generates all Security Server and DB2 commands. Users enter data by selecting from drop-down lists and by using other Windows facilities.
