Once upon a time, host systems lived in a secure world. Host data travelled a protected path to and from a trusted terminal. The host knew who the user was, where the data came from, and where the data was going.
Times have changed. Today we have open networks, service-oriented architectures, and hackers who hack faster than IT can patch. Host security hasn’t kept up. Traditional host-access security leaves data dangerously exposed in a number of ways:
- Weak, Decentralized Authentication
- Weak, Decentralized Authorization
- Decentralized Auditing
- Problematic Encryption
- Lack of Centralized Control
The world has now changed around your host systems. Today, these enterprise workhorses—rich with decades of data—don’t fit into your modern security framework. In fact, your modern security framework protects everything but your critical hosts. And yet regulatory requirements demand equal data protection for all.
This white paper reveals a practical way to bring your host systems into the modern security fold—finally closing the technology gap—without jeopardizing business operations.
