Raz-Lee Change Tracker automatically records every revision at source and object levels.
Raz-Lee Security announced today the immediate availability of Change Tracker, which enables IBM i (AS/400) companies to automatically and comprehensively trace software modifications at both the source and object levels.
With the increasing awareness and adherence to industry-wide regulations such as SOX, HIPAA, PCI, auditing and traceability—especially within production libraries—have become issues of major importance. Change Tracker is dedicated to automatically monitoring and logging object changes at both the source and object levels. Since Change Tracker relies solely on the actual updates within a library, no manual intervention is required.
Based on the QAUDJRN system journal, Change Tracker provides a robust and comprehensive solution that cannot be bypassed. Working in real-time, it can automatically record every revision and collect all information relevant to the modifications made, including object attributes, source code, changes to file structures and more.
Shmuel Zailer, CEO and CTO at Raz-Lee Security says, “The product is the perfect solution for small and mid-sized enterprises but suits also large entities which use a Change Management System (CMS) as a verification tool to ensure that all changes were properly recorded. This effortless product comes with a comprehensive report generator which can schedule periodic e-mails with HTML or PDF reports.”
While a typical CMS generally offers control over the full change management process, Change Tracker is geared to companies that specifically need to trace details that an auditor is most interested in researching, such as programs that entered into a production library. At the same time, Change Tracker enables users to specify activities which can be disregarded, such as files that are already being tracked effectively by their CMS. Companies can classify different types of log entries in accordance with in-house conventions, helping them quickly identify applications, projects, and tasks in each library.
Eli Spitz, vice president of Business Development at Raz-Lee Security, adds, "With the release of Change Tracker, small and mid-sized enterprises can quickly implement an easy-to-use, cost-effective object-tracking system which logs the essential data that auditors require to meet industry-wide regulations. It lets them tailor reports according to definitions for specific libraries, as well as identify who made suspicious changes and when.”
Change Tracker will be available beginning in June 2012.
