XYPRO - Breaches are from Mars, Security is from Venus

 There is quite a large disconnect in the way security breaches are evolving versus how security solutions and resources are keeping up to address them, much like the book from John Gray covering relationships and the different motivations, of men and women. Unlike the book though, we’re not trying to come to a happy medium – we’re trying to keep the war like Mars at bay. As a security strategist, I’m constantly evaluating what is possible to help identify gaps and opportunities. The one thing I have learned over the course of my career is:

The only thing constant in cyber security is that attackers’ methods will continue to evolve.  They get smarter, more resourceful and are impressively ever patient.

XYPRO - Implementing Tokenization & Access Control – Don’t Let it all Hang Out!

In recent years there has been an emergence of several new technologies to protect sensitive data, including Format Preserving Encryption (FPE) and Secure Stateless Tokenization (SST), such as those provided by HPE Security’s SecureData product. These products provide excellent capabilities to assist HPE NonStop users in protecting data within their application environments. Both HPE FPE and HPE SST provide strong protection against the exposure of sensitive data but they should not be used alone or to replace traditional access controls. Data protection methods such as FPE and SST need to be carefully considered and planned alongside traditional access controls to ensure all application data is comprehensively protected both from authorized and unauthorized exposure.

What is a NonStop Server? – Building Bridges

I had a proud moment the other day. Kind of like when you get to brag about your children (or grandchildren):

I was enjoying a beverage with a group of Mainframe support team members. We had just completed a long day of meetings on HPE NonStop topics.  Only one of the Mainframe team had attended. At some point, the question was asked “What is a NonStop server and why do we have them?” The company has had their servers for decades. Everyone knows about the machines, but like so many other places, no one ever asks. To my utter amazement, the answer straight from the Mainframe guy was: “It is a mainframe system. HPE makes them. They run application x”.

Unprompted, without influence, an old school IBM Mainframe systems person tossed this out.  The look on my face must have been an odd mixture of happiness and confusion as I have NEVER heard anyone who wasn’t raised on NonStop calling my systems a main­ frame. We spent the next few hours educating each other on the benefits (and difficulties) of managing our chosen systems.

What I wish I could reproduce at any gathering of plat­ form advocates, whether it be Windows, Mainframe, Linux or NonStop is that spark of understanding. We all enjoy what we do (at least I hope we do) and there is a certain devotion/dedicationand pride that goes along withit.  Atthe end of this discussion,  we all laughed an really appreciated what the others go through every day.

The next time you run into someone who isn’t as savvy as you are on the subject of our favorite platform, take the time to bringthem up to speed.  While you are at it, try and build a bridge by trying to see why they love what they do as much as you. You never know wherethe next convert may be.
