Monitoring and Reporting
All of your system activity should be fully logged and supported by robust reporting and alerting capabilities. This allows you complete visibility to all actions performed by system users and the ability to detect unauthorized or inappropriate activity.
Rocket Servergraph consolidates logs from all your backup applications for effective, centralized management. Real-time alerts and reports can be scheduled for automated delivery to reviewers. These can include backup job status notifications, as well as server health monitoring. Configurable traps allow you to define the specific activities and thresholds that generate notifications, from backup errors to disk space alerts, and the automated distribution ensures that your monitoring controls over these issues are coordinated efficiently.
Rocket Servergraph archives every kind of log for as long as you need them. The retention period is configurable for any duration. This ensures that all historical evidence will be available to you when requested by an auditor or examiner—which often requires looking back a year or more.
Rocket Servergraph logs also show user activity within the application, such as logins and changes to traps or reporting configuration.
Rocket Aldon Lifecycle Manager utilizes logging functionality throughout development projects, as well as within the administration of the ALM application itself.
Preloaded report templates are available to cover all your audit, examination, and security control requirements. Reports that are commonly used for security and compliance include detailed user account lists with their associated access rights for each release, permissions defined within custom roles, and a log of changes made to any user access rights or role-based permissions over a period of time. These logs can be generated independently by a reviewer with appropriately restricted, read-only rights to maintain segregation of duties.
All development activities are similarly logged, including code check-outs and check-ins, migrations, reviews, and approvals. These detailed reports provide you an end-to-end record of every development action to monitor the operating effectiveness of your change controls, and provide everything you need to satisfy your auditors and examiners.
Rocket API logging functionality allows you to record the full details of every API call performed through the system, showing the user accessing the function, the data being accessed, values being read or written, and associated metadata. This detailed log enabled you to report on all types of access to sensitive data, a critical component of many data security regulations.
In addition to API calls to your mainframe, Rocket Access and Connectivity Hub (RACH) audit logging records all user activity within the application, including uploading and deployment of compiled APIs as well as administration of the application itself, providing individual accountability for all access and activity.
