Important Updates to Cybersecurity Software
HelpSystems is updating the names of our cybersecurity software, including the Powertech product line. Don’t worry—the functionality of your products won’t change.
See the new names here > New, Clearer Names for HelpSystems Security Software.
Please review the following information before updating Command Security.
It is Powertech’s goal not to change system values on customer systems because we recognize that security-conscious organizations have rigorous change control processes in place for even small changes to system values. Therefore, we ask you to make any system value changes that are needed. However, the Command Security installation process could change a system value to allow the install to proceed if a system value is not set as specified below. If the Installation Wizard changes a system value during install, it changes it back to its original value when the install completes.
To update Powertech Command Security on your system, the following system values that control object restores must be configured as shown.
Command Security requires the following:

If FTP is not available, you must install the product manually. See Manual Installation of Powertech IBM i Products.

Note: Make sure the user profile is a member of the user class *SECOFR and has at least the following special authorities: *ALLOBJ, *SECADM, *JOBCTL, *IOSYSCFG, and *AUDIT. The user profile should have Limit capabilities set to *NO.
The update process displays the job log name, user, and job log number. Use the WRKSPLF command to display the job log for complete information on the Command Security update.
