Security affects all vendors in many ways and it is perhaps the most talked about priority amongst the biggest enterprises on the planet. It’s good to know how serious these enterprises are treating security in its many guises – privacy, protection, compliance, integrity, etc. – and that the exchanges between enterprises and vendors represent an never-ending loop of requirements creation and product development. However, there are times when the need to keep secret how a vendor’s product has been deployed and put to use not only hides specifics from that vendor but also can marginalize the effectiveness of requirements exchanges where information provided may not fully qualify the opportunity.
This was the topic of a recent feature article published in the September, 2019 issue of NonStop Insider. Coming at a time when DataExpress is enjoying a very strong patronage among some of the biggest financial institutions on the planet, up and down the corporate world, everyone has to respond to security – unintended consequences included! More on this theme appeared in the feature article, Whether up, down or across – DataExpress can manage the secure movement of all your files!
“However, even as an active member of the NonStop community there are instances where we do not know specifics about how our products are deployed other than in the vaguest of ways – whenever there is a hardware upgrade and NonStop is involved then the phone will ring. Having said this, what we can cover in collateral in support of DataExpress is that when it comes to managing the secure movement of files, there are many directions in which the movement occurs.
“Expressed as simply as we can, there are enterprises that rely on DataExpress to move files up to agencies and institutions that hold positions of oversight and mandate regular reporting of all transactions. Just as importantly, there are whole ecosystems horizontally positioned that involve sharing of files among peer systems, many of which may be located nearby in the data center. And lastly there are requirements to move files downstream, in most respects, to clients and business partners when summaries and consolidations are required.”
This is not a knock on security but rather a reinforcement of the notion that everyone in IT today is looking at how best to meet the ever changing needs enterprises have to better meet the demands of governments, financial agencies and business partners as well as their customers. This too was noted in this latest feature article where you will read more from DataExpress CEO, Billy Whittington:
“From a business perspective, some of the biggest card processors in the land leverage DataExpress to move files from, to and between their clients. These files can be anything from summaries of activities over the span of the day/week/month/year to exceptions, error reporting and audits – all important elements for customers being served by processors today,” noted Whittington. It hasn’t been lost on us here at DataExpress that what we view as a product is in many cases viewed as part of the infrastructure supporting other revenue opportunities.
