XYGATE User Authentication (XUA), now included with all new HPE NonStop orders, allows NonStop servers to integrate into an enterprise’s SSO environment, thereby simplifying provisioning and management of NonStop users. Users can now access all of their authorized systems, including NonStop servers, using a single user ID and password. The user benefits from the simplicity of authentication while the administrator benefits from a reduced user ID and password maintenance burden. Overall, security is improved and costs are reduced for the enterprise with XUA.
XUA supports OpenLDAP, Active Directory, RADIUS, and RSA SecurID multifactor authentication. It also extends the NonStop server’s authentication capabilities to support logon controls based on attributes such as time, location, or requestor, and generates comprehensive authentication audit data. All authentication activity is captured in the XUA audit log. XUA can capture audit data in up to nine different locations and formats. The audit data is also collected by the XYGATE Merged Audit software and can be reported, alerted, and transmitted to your Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution. XUA uses the Security Event Exit Process (SEEP) interface supplied by Safeguard to participate in the logon process on the NonStop server. It requires that Safeguard be installed and running on the HPE NonStop Server. XUA empowers security administrators with the necessary tools to meet strict compliance requirements (such as PCI, SOX, and HIPAA).
XUA provides an extension to Safeguard to authenticate users based on pre-set rules that are applied on top of NonStop security settings.
Users can now access NonStop servers through an industry SSO solution. The Authentication layer will trace the user to the associated Nonstop userid for authentication.
100% of NonStop’s Authentication Requests are handled through the User Authentication layer with ease.
XUA is designed to support greater flexibility and control, providing more effective and streamlined user authentication for your enterprise HPE NonStop servers.
