Host Access and Security

Getting mainframe and legacy system information to your modern endpoints is about more than providing host access. The challenge is to find the right terminal emulator: one that brings the data into the modern world, rather than forcing your users into an environment that feels like the past. Many products emulate—very few provide secure host access that meets your productivity needs.

White paper

Safeguarding Cardholder Account Data

In 2004, the major credit card companies—including Visa, MasterCard, and American Express—joined forces to create the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The PCI DSS applies to all companies that store, process, or transmit cardholder account data. Its purpose: to ensure data privacy for consumers via strict security controls across the industry. A series of compliance deadlines have sent organizations scrambling to meet the twelve broad PCI DSS requirements. These requirements range from being relatively easy to implement—such as ensuring up-to-date anti-virus software—to complex and demanding—such as tracking access to network resources and cardholder data. This white paper tells how Attachmate® Reflection® terminal emulators, file transfer utilities, and SSH clients and servers can help you achieve PCI DSS compliance. By the time you’re done reading, you’ll know which Reflection products can help you address specific PCI requirements—and how they do it. You’ll also see that Reflection enables compliance beyond terminal emulation and file transfer into areas you may not have considered before.
