Valuable Features:

  • Restoring the deleted object functionality (RA.4 – Recreate user/grp/ds/RES)

  • Event reporting from SMF

Improvements to My Organization:

The productivity and consistency in our organization has been improved by:

There should be more supplied reports and CARLa samples.

Use of Solution:

I have used this tool for over ten years.

We did not experience any scalability issues.

Technical Support:

I would give the technical support a rating of 9/10.

Initial Setup:

The setup was relatively straightforward. It was basically a standard implementation and an intuitive setup process.

Cost and Licensing Advice:

Be aware as IBM Security zSecure has separately licensed products such as:

  •  Admin
  • Audit
  • Alert
  • Command Verifier
  • Visual
  • CICS Toolkit

Make sure you know what components you actually need.
