As cyber attacks become more sophisticated, File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) is becoming a key component for IBM i administrators to protect and monitor data access and change activity of files at the column or field level - without changing applications or user accounts. Additionally, FIM is required for many data security compliance regulations such as PCI DSS (Sections 10 and 11). 

In this podcast, Patrick Townsend, Founder & CEO, discusses:

  • Why implementing FIM tools is a best practice and compliance requirement

  • How administrators are using them

  • What makes the Townsend Security FIM solution unique

  • How easy and affordable it is to deploy a FIM solution


Active monitoring can significantly reduce the chance of a data breach.
