Presentation Title: Security? A never-ending story

Abstract: When it comes to cybercrime and the HPE NonStop, hacking a system is about finding a way to access privileged userids such as super.super, or the application owner, which enables a person to then perform unauthorized functions on the system as that user. The only way to ensure that there are no holes in your security that would allow this kind of breach is by reviewing all of the subsystems that, if not configured appropriately, may leave your company exposed. This presentation provides a structured approach to performing a security review of your HPE NonStop environment.

Afternoon Coffee Break

Sponsored by: ComForte Inc.

3:00 – 3:30

Vendor Presentation: comForte Inc.

Speaker: Steve Kubick, Senior Vice President Sales

Presentation Title: Digital Transformation

Presentation Abstract: Butterflies? Really? This year Steve is taking a dramatic turn and the object will be a butterfly. No more Pirates of the Caribbean, Tug Boat radios and Unabombers to discuss data security. Digital transformation, in its truest definition, breaks an organization down to the DNA level and rebuilds it into a new organization. What does that look like for organizations running NonStops? How can YOU start to digitally transform your organization? Steve pulls from his experience across various industries and platforms to help paint a vision of possible digital transformations with NonStop systems, especially the NonStop X systems.

3:30 – 4:00

Vendor Presentation: Shadowbase Software

Speaker: Mr. Paden R. Holenstein, Marketing Associate, Shadowbase Software

Presentation Title: HPE Shadowbase Update and Extended Use Cases

Abstract: We describe how HPE Shadowbase works in several use case scenarios: business continuity (active/passive through sizzling-hot-takeover to fully active/active replication architectures); data integration and synchronization (big data, feeding a data warehouse, localizing data sets for performance and autonomy); application integration (real-time fraud detection and building a real-time business intelligence system); zero downtime migration (eliminating planned application downtime and minimizing the risks associated with hardware and software changes); and zero data loss (eliminating data loss during outages). We will also review new and future HPE Shadowbase product features, including active/active bi-directional zero data loss architectures; support for IBM DB2 as a source; Enscribe to SQL replication enhancements; improvements to simplify migration from RDF or OGG to HPE Shadowbase; and additional BASE24™ feature support.

4:00 – 4:30

Vendor Presentation: CSP

Speaker: Henry Fonseca

Presentation Title: Multi-Factor Authentication on NonStop Revolutionized!

Abstract: Compliance made easy – that has been CSP’s mandate when developing its latest solutions. For the past 3 decades, CSP has been an innovator in the field of NonStop security. However, the challenges now facing the NonStop platform in this area have become increasingly complex. CSP has developed a series of easy-to-use solutions that will keep your system secure, ensure you remain compliant, and best of all, provide the flexibility that a changing NonStop landscape demands.

CSP will present our latest solution to support MFA on NonStop servers: CSP Authenticator+™. Born out of the Protect-X security hardening solution, CSP Authenticator+™ is built for universal user Application and System (TACL and OSS) access so that security administrators can easily implement one or several secondary Authentication methods including token-based systems such as RSA or similar providers.
