Open Text Security products provide secure terminal access, file transfers, application port forwarding through SSH or SOCKS and can facilitate single-sign on functionality.
Open Text Secure Shell Add-on
Open Text Secure Shell helps organisations achieve security compliance by providing Secure Shell (SSH) capabilities as an add-on product. Security concerns continue to receive unprecedented focus from organisations around the globe and the cost of security breaches has proven to be financially crippling for many organisations.
The need to secure sensitive data is paramount. Industry-specific security standards and government regulations are also prompting organisations to review and improve their current security infrastructures and policies.
Open Text Secure Shell is an add-on to a wide selection of Open Text Connectivity Solutions, including Exceed, Exceed PowerSuite, HostExplorer and Open Text NFS Client, as well as any third-party network applications.
Open Text Secure Shell seamlessly encrypts network traffic generated by applications in compliance with industry regulations, such as FIPS 140-2. As a tightly integrated add-on component for Open Text Connectivity Solutions, it offers great transparency to end users, affecting neither their workflow nor productivity.
Open Text Secure Shell provides Secure Shell 2 (SSH), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), LIPKEY and Kerberos security mechanisms to ensure security for communication types such as X11, NFS, terminal emulation (Telnet), FTP and any TCP/IP protocol.
Open Text Secure Server provides a strong set of security features to protect information and network assets.
Organisations are under mounting pressure from auditors and shareholders to step up their security efforts and to meet industry and government standards including PCI-DSS, SOX, HIPAA, and GLBA.
One solution is to implement secure alternatives for the unsecured FTP and Telnet protocols, which are still widely used by many organisations today. Open Text Secure Server is a secure replacement to Telnet and FTP services. This solution allows organisations to address security issues such as; the lack of Data Encryption, no Host Authentication and the absence of Data Integrity.
Open Text Secure Server provides a high-performance, scalable, reliable, SFTP and Secure Shell server functionality for Microsoft Windows platforms. It is based on the Secure Shell 2 (SSH) protocol and is equipped with the FIPS 140-2-validated Cryptographic Module.
Open Text Secure Terminal is a secure file transfer (SFTP) and terminal emulation (SSH) client. It replaces the unsecured FTP and Telnet clients, allowing organisations to leverage corporate investments in legacy data, while protecting data from prying eyes during transit. Security breaches have a serious financial impact on companies, not to mention the intangible damage caused by tarnished reputations.
Companies cannot take any chances by accessing mission-critical enterprise information assets through network applications that rely on unsecured communication protocols, such as FTP and Telnet. A safe and secure enterprise system is an important necessity in today's business computing world. Open Text Secure Terminal supports industry-standard technologies for securing network communications, using mechanisms such as FIPS 140-2 validated Secure Shell 2, SSLv2/3 & TLS and Kerberos. With Open Text Secure Terminal, users access business applications and corporate data from their Windows PCs through a secured terminal or SFTP session.
Open Text Secure Terminal can even extend the availability of those applications and data to business partners, suppliers, contractors and any other off-site users without sacrificing security. A unique deployment solution, supplied at no extra cost with Open Text Secure Terminal, lets administrators deploy full-featured, Web-to-host secure terminal sessions quickly and seamlessly to remote users with access to a standard web browser. With strong encryption, mandatory authentication and strengthened data integrity, Open Text Secure Terminal ensures sensitive information assets are safe while they are in transit to and from anywhere.
