In August, Gravic published a new white paper, Shadowbase Synchronous Replication – Product Overview. Shadowbase synchronous replication (Shadowbase Zero Data Loss, or Shadowbase ZDL) resolves two key issues of asynchronous replication: data loss on source system failure and data collisions when running an active/active environment. By eliminating data loss and effectively setting the Recovery Point Objective, or RPO, to zero, Shadowbase ZDL protects your valuable data from having to be recreated after catastrophic failure. It removes the risk of loss and uncertainty of the status of your data after a failover/takeover, and provides unique differentiating product capabilities for the HPE NonStop market. Shadowbase ZDL is the only choice for business critical applications where even milliseconds of lost data or downtime is unacceptable.

Identify AND Protect Your Sensitive Data with TANDsoft’s Sensitive Data Intercept (SDI)

TANDsoft’s Sensitive Data Intercept (SDI) seamlessly intercepts HPE NonStop database access calls, then works with both HPE and 3rd party security solutions to protect sensitive data via encryption/tokenization algorithms. Companies also can purchase SDI strictly for the purpose of auditing/logging. Use SDI to identify who is accessing sensitive data, the times of access, and what data being accessed. Without SDI, auditing/logging is often manual, labor-intensive, and particularly challenging when companies must work with auditors for the purpose of regulatory compliance.  No application modifications required.

PCI-DSS 3.2 is only months away. I thought now would be as good of a time as any to revisit the article below highlighting the upcoming changes. The two most impactful changes to NonStop customers will be Multi-factor authentication (MFA) now required for all non-console administrative access to the card data environment as well as discontinuing usage of pre TLS 1.1 protocols. MFA becomes a requirement in February 2018 and TLS 1.1+ becomes mandatory in June 2018. In the next issue of The Connection Magazine, we will go in depth with how to address PCI-DSS 3.2 on the HPE NonStop, but in the meantime, the article below summarizes the changes that NonStop users should be aware of.
