What Changed

On October 15th, 2018, the names of products in the Powertech product line were updated on HelpSystems.com, throughout the HelpSystems Customer Portal, on billing documents, and more.

Changes to the names of Powertech products will not affect the way the software functions. We are currently in the process of applying these name changes within the products themselves.

Introducing Clearer Security Product Names

HelpSystems security software, including the Powertech product line, has always included first-class solutions designed to protect critical data. When the product line first launched, it included just a few products. But the threat landscape has changed considerably in recent years. We’ve added new products to the Powertech portfolio to meet the growing demand for effective, easy-to-use solutions for IBM i, AIX, and Linux.

As the world of cybersecurity has grown more complex, simplicity has become more valuable than ever. That’s why we’re integrating more and more Powertech solutions into HelpSystems Insite—the single pane of glass for managing IT across your organization.

We’ve also heard from you—our customers—how helpful it is to see a product name and instantly recognize how that product helps you secure your environment. The new, clearer names are designed to make your interaction with your software faster and more seamless.

As always, we are committed to providing the highest level of service and support to you. In the coming months, you’ll see product names updated throughout your product interfaces. If you have any questions about how these product updates will affect you, contact HelpSystems Support.
