No IT system or application should be assumed to be completely secure, and no single product, service or security measure can be single-handedly foolproof in preventing improper use or access. Not even the IBM Power i (AS/400). Security should be top of mind across the enterprise, and come with a mandate from senior management.
The IBM i is highly securable, and for the most part, ships secure. However, many administrators make systems changes without fully understanding the effects of the changes they are making, which could result in exposing their system to increased risk.
Have you done this on your systems?
the quality or state of being secure
protected from risk of danger or harm
capable of being secured from risk of danger
Today, 80 percent of cyber-attacks originate from well-organized criminal groups.
Savvy companies know that in today’s data-driven, highly distributed world, there are serious threats that must be addressed head-on. For many of you the IBM Power i (AS/400) is, has been, and will continue to be the backbone of your company. But as you look to take advantage of modern applications in mobility, E-commerce, analytics, etc. you have to ensure that you are secure.
