10/2018 – SF-DeepDive – new due diligence (DD) software package for mainframe outsourcers

When it comes to making decisions about the future of a mainframe, outsourcing is one option to consider. Of course, both sides involved in such a step have their own interests, and there is even tough competition among today’s outsourcing service providers.

The new SF-DeepDive due diligence (DD) software package provides exactly what a mainframe outsourcer needs to get a clearer insight into given systems in a short amount of time.
As an option, it can be combined with local assessment services from our company.

08/2018 – SF-SafeDump supports the integration of external confidential data scanner (CDS) and data leakage prevention (DLP)

Companies dealing with extremely sensitive data often use confidential data scanner (CDS) or data leakage prevention (DLP) applications to do a general scan of all documents before they may leave house. It’s important to emphasize that such CDS and DLP solutions do not perform anonymization, but instead scan documents (files) for possible sensitive content and create a corresponding report. With SF-SafeDump’s new PTF level 017 it’s easy to exploit the performance of any CDS or DLP, namely, to double-check any anonymized dumps and log files as regards possible “leftovers.” But we don’t want to give you the wrong impression: the principal quality check, which is highly comprehensive and fully sufficient, also happens within SF-SafeDump. This means that you are safe and covered without a CDS or DLP. You should also be aware of the fact that SF-SafeDump covers many more categories of sensitive information than a CDS or DLP solution.

Overall, the integration of a given CDS or DLP solution into SF-SafeDump is fully optional. On the other hand, it’s a nice feature, since a CDS/DLP scan may increase a company’s internal level of compliance and promote good feelings while applying the “golden rule” of mandatory document scanning fully effectively to in fact any document, i.e. even to dump and log files originating from the mainframe. We will definitely support any such scenario and won’t take it “personally” if users extend the already powerful quality assurance provided by SF-SafeDump through additional review capabilities. We are confident about this, since SF-SafeDump learns from the results of the CDS or DLP. Just to be clear: it’s still the goal and duty of SF-SafeDump to leave all CDS or DLP reports empty.

With PTF Level 017, everything is provided for such an integration of a CDS or DLP application and even to fully automate the related procedures; the tools provided also solve all problems of best practice that occur within such an integration. The new PTF level 017 is now released and ready for download.
