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.


Exit Point Manager (formerly called "Network Security") 7 no longer uses the PTNSADM Authorization List. Product authority is controlled by Role Based Security issued from Powertech Central Administration.

As was the case in earlier versions, when entering a license key after a new installation you must have the *ALLOBJ special authority or be a member of an Authorization List in order to access Exit Point Manager. Exit Point Manager 7 uses the PTADMIN Authorization List, which allows you to access both the Powertech menu and the product itself. (Previous versions of Exit Point Manager required membership to PTNSADM (Exit Point Manager 6.x) and POWERLOCKA (Exit Point Manager 5.x).) 

Note that the license key for Exit Point Manager 7 is now accessible using option 81 in the Powertech Main Menu (rather than from within the product itself).

Other Powertech products that do not bear a Central Administration Signature retain their previous access requirements and Security.
