Dataflow utilizes filters to search for altered files. Dataflow's most outstanding feature is its capability to display a journal's entry specific data, which is the field-level changed data in a record. It also works as a file viewer for journals, with changes in field values being clearly and distinctly marked. In this way, companies can get a "before" and "after" image of specific fields, or entire records, for auditing purposes, such as those required by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and other government mandates. Users can add, change, or delete journals with the tool.
What is needed is a set of tools which will allow you to view data changes at the level of selected fields and compare the new field value with the old value. It goes without saying that these field changes must be accompanied with a description of the environment in which the changes were made, that is to say, the user name, program name, date and time plus other important characteristics.
This is Enforcive’s interactive tool to monitor data changes at the field level, including all the relevant information about when the changes were made, how they were made and who made them. A combination of on-line inquiries and printed reports are complemented with intuitive facilities for the management of file journals.
Enforcive/Global Security Dataflow Database Integrity combines OS400 journal technology with Enforcive’s proprietary technology to provide control of field data values. The format of the record is saved in the Dataflow database and the information is used to display added, deleted or changed records broken down into their respective fields.
If you’ve once taken a look at the journal data to see what happened at the field level you’ll know that this information is not easily visible. In addition, handling of journals directly has always been a somewhat daunting task requiring a knowledgeable administrator. Enforcive/Global Security Dataflow Database Integrity is an all-inclusive product which will assist you both in management of your journals and in presenting data collected in the journal in the clearest manner available today. But, even more than this, by letting you compare specific field values both before and after change, Enforcive/Global Security Dataflow Database Integrity is an invaluable security tool which can pinpoint manipulation of your company’s or organization’s data.
