About Powertech Event Manager

Powertech Event Manager is a cybersecurity insight and response platform that ensures critical events get the attention they require. Events are translated into an easy-to-interpret format, and critical events are separated from the noise in real time. This enables security analysts to act quickly and decisively, even without specialized knowledge of every technology in your environment. A full audit trail makes it easy to meet compliance requirements.

Pros: If you have an IBM system i among your IT ecosystem, then this SIEM will make a real difference as the company's deep knowledge on this platform allows to have the best integration possible. This platform allows a perfect integration with the rest of the systems, correlating the information of the whole platforms with a consistent event detection and a powerful notification mechanism.

Cons: I would like to recover part of the customization capabilities of the previous version, at least as an option.

Overall: I use it as the SIEM for managing the access to production for the IT administrators. It allows me to cope with the security logging and monitoring required to have the production environment under control, mapping each event to the related incident raising alarms when required. With this setup in place, we make our environment a trusted one for critical business applications.

Pros: It runs on the IBMi platform & provides an additional layer of security & control beyond what IBM provides with the OS. Training provided was excellent.

Cons: It takes a lot of time to set up, to monitor, & then regularly watch it. It's green-screen based --- so it's not a modern interface. Takes quite a bit of time to learn it where it becomes 2nd nature. I'm not sure that we are using it fully up to its potential.

Overall: We were able to implement exit point security on our IBMi system, which we did not have before. This protects parts of the IBMi that are not well protected by the basic OS of the system. It provides useful tracking information. too.
