An Introduction to the SEEP

April 15 2014

Safeguard is a good, solid and sometimes misunderstood subsystem that most NonStop installations rely on to ensure security and stability. Due to the nature of mission critical application that typically run on HP NonStop systems, HP needs to give careful consideration to any change to the subsystem, even to facilitate new technology.

Data-Centric Security – Addressing Security Gaps Across the Enterprise

As we close out 2013, a year that will likely have seen the greatest number of personal data breaches in history, and enter into 2014, with a number of high profile breaches already taken place, it seems an opportune time to take a look at the potential for those breaches to impact us in the NonStop environment, and how to reduce our exposures. 2014 brings clear dramatic challenges to every CEO, CIO, CFO and CISO in every enterprise or retailer – a dramatic rise in sophisticated attacks to IT infrastructure by criminally or nationstate motivated organizations looking to steal sensitive data assets. At the same time, there are more demands from the business to make the right data available to the right people, anytime, anywhere against a backdrop of complex privacy regulations. This presents opposing forces to the enterprise: to protect data, but also enable its use. Locking up data to protect it is not an option as this will impede the business. On the other hand, unprotected data will result in data theft. New approaches are needed to achieve a balanced approach to data risk and data access, to grow shareholder and reduce compliance costs value while reducing risk. Those of us that deal with cardholder data now have to consider the additional goals set down by PCI DSS v3.0, including – additional system scope, implementing PCI DSS as part of business-as-usual processes, and other guidance for assessors.

March 24 2014

XYPRO has always believed in the power of customer service. Staying true to our nature, on March 11th we officially launched the Self-Service Customer Support portal. In an age of instant answers, the Self-Service portal gives our customers a way to quickly find answers to some of the most common XYGATE and NonStop questions.

The goal of the portal is to provide our customers with control over their XYPRO support experience. From opening and managing cases, to browsing knowledgebase articles, to obtaining software and documentation updates, to the many more benefits to come, the portal is geared for empowering you, our customer, with the very same tools our own agents use to answer your support questions. While we will continue to support some of the traditional support handling processes such as telephone and email; we are excited about the valuable addition of the web portal to the customer support process. This provides yet another option for our customers to interact with our support team, 24x7x365.
