Vanguard Policy Manager
Vanguard Integrity Professionals is one of the largest independent providers of enterprise
security software addressing complex security and regulatory compliance challenges.

S

ince 1986, we have helped our
customers safeguard mission-critical
data and applications.
Information security professionals need
a solution to stop policy violations and
maintain compliance. Vanguard Policy
Manager* gives these administrators the
power to control the mainframe environment
and ensure constant compliance.
Vanguard Policy Manager dramatically
reduces security risks and improves
regulatory compliance, minimizing the
need for expensive remediation while
increasing staff productivity.
Vanguard Policy Manager provides
proactive enforcement, corrects commands
in accordance with corporate policies while
controlling security administrators.
When helpdesk personnel or
decentralized administrators issue
commands that are not compliant with
security policies, security administrators
end up spending hours to rectify the
resultant issues and clean up the
environment. These mistakes and
deviations from policy can leave your
mainframe extremely vulnerable and

could cause your organization to fail a
system audit as well.
Take control of policy adherence with
Vanguard Policy Manager. Vanguard
Policy Manager limits the ability to access
databases and applications, prevents
privilege creep and effectively stops
employees from making changes unless
they have been explicitly authorized to
do so. Utilizing this solution enables
enterprises to prevent problems before
they occur and ensures regulatory
compliance 24-7.
The solution takes automatic, preemptive action to stop users from
issuing commands that do not comply
with acceptable access policies before
problems occur and before they are
discovered by an audit.
With Vanguard Policy Manager,
authorized personnel can easily and
accurately control which users and/
or groups of users can execute specific
commands, parameters and subparameters. The solution either modifies
noncompliant commands to conform to
policy or prevents execution entirely.

company policy
1 Provides an audit trail within the profile of

the command history
1 Provides predefined best practice policies
1 Has the capability to create and

customize user-defined policies
1 Tracks changes to the security server

of a switch

password capabilities while providing
