Vanguard Offline allows detailed mainframe security monitoring and reporting of how resources are accessed, including who, when, where, and what level of authority. This allows for complete and accurate remediation of excessive or inappropriate access to resources. Vanguard Offline reduces the risk involved in making changes to IBM z/OS security server by providing a test environment where users can make changes and then validate those changes prior to executing the commands in a production environment. Using Vanguard Offline is a superior method to testing changes in a test environment due to the fact that test environments never simulate all production access, whereas Offline can and will simulate all production access captured over time.
