Why it’s important to Scan your NonStop Systems for Vulnerabilities

CSP has been an innovator in the field of NonStop security for over three decades and understands the complex security challenges facing the NonStop platform.

Organizations must comply with critical security requirements to protect data and satisfy regulations like PCI 4.0 and GDPR. CSP has developed a series of easy-to-use solutions to keep your system secure, ensure you remain compliant, and provide the flexibility that a changing NonStop landscape demands.

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.

CSP understands enterprises must continuously check their NonStop systems for inconsistencies, so we developed an easy-to-use vulnerability scanning and reporting tool for NonStop Systems.

CSP Vulnerability Scanner version 2.0 is available now, and to celebrate its release, we are giving away one free Vulnerability Scanner license (for one Nonstop Development/Test server) and waiving the maintenance and support on the first year.

CSP Vulnerability Scanner is a vulnerability scanning and reporting solution for HPE NonStop systems that analyzes risks and identifies vulnerabilities by checking the NonStop system’s configuration, access permissions, and security settings. It generates insightful reports for users and recommends changes to improve the security posture.

There is no GUI to install, and users can run reports from TACL and export using Spoolview. Vulnerability Scanner is also easy to install and use.
