Tech is full of buzzy trends, but security is never out of style

August 24, 2023 Blog

No organization is immune to threats. Corporations cannot trust any single element within their organizations. Inaction to provide protection, hoping for the best, is not a strategy.

While many trendy topics fall in and out of fashion, security remains a priority, especially when new technologies, such as AI, are introduced into corporate environments. Whether an enterprise is looking to create superior defenses against ransomware attacks, set in place early detection systems to prevent hacking attempts, or simply bring the enterprise into compliance with security mandates, it has become clear to CSP that the corporate world must adapt to these changes to ensure the integrity of their critical data and applications. There may be conversations taking place on topics such as Artificial Intelligence. In practice, corporations worry more about security vulnerabilities presented by the arrival of any new technology.

The watchword today must be “adaptation”. When it comes to trust and defense, those determined to compromise the ongoing operations of any NonStop user will continue to probe for weaknesses. That drives CSP to develop new solutions and add new features to its portfolio of security applications. It has become clear to CSP that even where competing products may be present, there are no arguments against strengthening the security arsenal at the disposal of NonStop users.

Furthermore, our habit of delivering timely enhancements has been crucial to our ongoing success as a vendor operating in the NonStop ecosystem.

CSP has recently announced CSP Vulnerability Scanner™ and continues to provide further updates on this solution in presentations to the NonStop Community. This solution demonstrates our belief in making incremental changes to meet our NonStop users’ needs. We understand that enterprises must continuously check their NonStop systems for any inconsistencies. With this latest application from CSP, users receive access to multiple vulnerability reports regarding their NonStop system. CSP Vulnerability Scanner also provides suggestions to remediate the issues encountered.

Our NonStop customers expressed a need for something simple and non-disruptive that could run at any time and provide reports on any abnormalities that might be present on their NonStop systems. It is all about simplicity and getting the job done, both of which are required to protect NonStop from vulnerabilities.

However, in a world where organizations implement zero-trust models, corporations must ensure that users are authorized to access only the necessary resources they require to complete their tasks. Organizations can use applications like CSP Authenticator+®, which support Multi-Factor Authentication logins for applications that access the cardholder data environment. At CSP, we believe in balancing value, performance, and simplicity. We understand that the best way for us to serve the NonStop community is to develop solutions that are easy to use, cost-effective, and provide the highest level of security for NonStop systems.

CSP Authenticator+ is a cloud-native application developed using a modern cloud-based framework. This redesign provides additional security, offer flexibility, and scale to meet the needs of any of our NonStop customers. CSP Authenitcator+ supports multiple authentication methods, such as RADIUS, Active Directory, RSA, and Open LDAP. Additional authentication methods include Email, Text Messages, and Google Authenticator.

This solution embraces modern technologies such as Kubernetes Helm deployments. That makes it very easy to deploy in cloud environments using the Kubernetes framework. When it comes to support of high availability environments, our NonStop customers can create highly available Kubernetes clusters for resiliency.

Pursuing a cloud-native offering was a simple decision. There is a need today to integrate with other enterprise-wide security offerings, including the need to integrate with centralized ID management systems. That is now easier to achieve with CSP Authenticator+.
