How to Reduce Business Risk through Secure User Access for SAP


Unencrypted communication between users’ workstations and the backend SAP servers is a significant vulnerability to your SAP environment. This can put the confidential data inside your SAP systems and your entire business activity at risk—and have a negative impact on your customers. Find out how to reduce business risks and improve audit results through encrypted communication and two-factor user authentication for SAP.

SECUDE provides a customized, SAP-specific certificate management server — based on standard technology used in almost every company. It is extremely easy to install, highly available, and requires virtually zero maintenance effort. Read More

Bullet-proofing Instant Messaging


As more corporations adopt instant messaging (IM), chief information officers (CIOs) and IT managers are learning that it can be a serious source of liability and security exposure. Users, it seems, simply don’t understand the losses and exposures that can result from incautious IM use. Find out how security software solutions can help you reap the benefits of IM without exposing your company to unnecessary risk.

The Future of Secure Remote Password (SRP)


The Secure Remote Password (SRP) holds great promise as a way to strongly authenticate a user without the usual risks of dictionary attack(s) faced by other password-based authentication schemes. Yet the industry de-facto standard remains the password-based authentication scheme. This article explores the possibilities for SRP in today’s multi-channel world, specifically how it improves upon the inherent insecurity of password authentication and the obstacles to overcome to succeed.

authentication mechanisms  The focus on strong authentication mechanisms came under scrutiny in the early 1990s with the Internet boom and the ever-growing need to authenticate people across insecure channels. Historically, when an application requires strong authentication, it has been believed that small passwords were insufficient and that a large password would prevent common dictionary attacks. Yet large random passwords have their own problem people fail to memorize them. More than likely, the user will need to write down Read More

Great Product: Too Bad The Architecture Doesn’t Fit


During the process of product selection a great deal of attention is given to the functional capabilities of the software being evaluated. While this aspect is obviously important, ignoring the technical mechanisms by which the software actually operates can be fatal to a project. In this document we explain how to avoid the pitfalls.

Single Sign-on (SSO): Truths and Myths


Technology products always seem to come out strong, and then wither under intense scrutiny. This was the case with single sign-on (SSO). However, any product driven by strong need will reinvent itself to address the problems it contains. With SSO, a number of myths have now been exploded. Find out why it may be time for you to evaluate SSO for your company. Myth #1: You can’t get true SSO.

authentication mechanisms  minimal-user applications with nonstandard authentication requirements. The opportunity for SSO is even more apparent with midsized companies that have dozens of applications rather than thousands. There is always a level of practicality involved when dealing with those applications that only have a handful of users, but that decision is one of resource allocation, not technical impossibility. Got a concern? The best way to protect your interests is to ensure that any SSO software company provides some Read More

No Back Doors. No Open Windows.


To boot or pre-boot, that is the question. There’s no doubt that operating systems (OSs) are complicated given the sheer amount of code that must be flawlessly interfaced and the potential vulnerabilities that can ensue. While full disk encryption (FDE) is one step closer to a more secure OS, encryption without strong authentication isn’t enough. For security-conscious users, pre-boot authentication is the only way to go.

How Is Business Process Management Applicable to Financial Services?


Business process management (BPM) allows financial services companies to manage internal processes and to increase efficiency and accuracy. Organizations, especially those that deal with Sarbanes-Oxley, should focus on BPM to ensure compliance and to minimize error and risk.

authentication mechanisms  are already using other authentication and authorization tools, the process engine can duplicate and synchronize the authentication and authorization process to make it more efficient and to reduce the risk of failures. Finally, the interface component enables users to access the BPM solution through a variety of applications and interfaces, such as browsers, portals, e-mail, etc. Besides these core components, BPM can have components that contain industry-specific information, such as rules builders, Read More

Ensuring 802.11n and 802.11a/b/g Compatibility


WLAN administrators will certainly appreciate 802.11n’s backward compatibility with their existing STAs. But at what price this compatibility? There’s no doubt that 802.11n delivers significant improvements—but just how much of this improvement is actualized when coexistence and protection mechanisms are in use? Download this white paper for a detailed look at the impact of coexistence on 802.11n data rate and throughput.
