Raz-Lee Rolls Out Business-Item Capture Solution
May 6, 2014 Alex Woodie
Raz-Lee Security today formally unveiled a new release of its audit-oriented Capture product at the COMMON conference in Orlando, Florida. Called Capture with Business-Items, or CBI, the software takes shots of users’ 5250 screens, while recording specific details such as customer and account numbers.
Raz-Lee first unveiled its Capture+++ product in the spring of 2004 to fill the need for screen monitoring capabilities in regulated industries, such as banking, insurance, and healthcare. The software would capture screens when specific criteria were met, such as attempts to sign-in with a certain user ID a certain IP address is accessed.
With CBI, the software now automatically detects, isolates, and captures additional data from the application along with the 5250 screen images. The capability to tie associated data–such as customer, item, policy and account numbers; job detail and statement numbers; and current users and display files–from users’ green-screen applications gives organizations and auditors better visibility into application activity.
Like Capture, CBI can be automatically triggered based on specific criteria. The software can take into account possible changes in screen positioning of specific fields over an application’s course of life. It also can detect the runtime environment being accessed, such as test or production, and react accordingly, the company says.
Raz-Lee says it developed CBI in part to satisfy the requirements of the Italian Privacy Law, which goes into effect next month. The law, which targets banks, specifically requires screen capture with business-item extraction capabilities.
Raz-Lee CEO and CTO Shmuel Zailer says his company has always tried to answer market demands quickly. “We are now extremely happy to be servicing our current and future Capture customers, as well as Italian customers and prospects, with CBI,” Zailer says.
The Nanuet, New York, company, which is holding a press conference at the COMMON conference this week, also announced new distributors in Mexico, Argentina, Spain, Costa Rica, Peru, Hungary, Indonesia, and Switzerland. It also announced the hiring of a new international sales director, Philip Pearson, who comes to Raz-Lee from HelpSystems‘ Powertech subsidiary after spending a few months at Halcyon Software.
