New security solutions from Symark.

Do you know that HP-UX was the first Unix to use access control lists for file access permissions rather than the standard Unix permissions system? HP-UX was also among the first Unix systems to include a built-in logical volume manager.

In computer security, Privileged Access can be the ultimate protection against hacking for the latest HP Integrity Servers and the HP-UX 11i v3 Operating System.

In the recent press release of Symark Software, Bob Farber, COO of Symark Software said, “Because enterprises around the world run mission-critical financial, human resources and other applications on UNIX and Linux systems, it is vital that they have a comprehensive access control mechanism in place.”

Hosting service providers when they upgrade their IT environments with HP’s new offerings, can protect their costly servers with Symark’s PowerBroker and PowerPassword-UME solutions will facilitate the secure deployment of HP Integrity servers and the HP-UX 11i v3 operating system by restricting and monitoring access to proprietary information and systems.

An access control list is a list of permissions allocated to a specific operation.. Mostly the list admin decides the level of access to each person that is designated to perform a specific task.

A key issue in the definition of any ACL-based security model is the question of how access control lists are edited. For each object, who can modify the object's ACL, and what changes are allowed?

This is resolved with Symark’s PowerBroker and PowerPassword-UME identity management and access control solutions combine best-of-breed functionality with ease-of-use to limit access to information and systems based on pre-defined policies and privileges.
