Secure Automation: Preventing Unauthorized Access to Systems and Data
In today’s world where security hacks and cyber-attacks are commonplace, organizations must protect their network and data as a price of doing business.
ActiveBatch’s security-driven automation model leads the market in delivering enterprise-wide secure automation by preventing unauthorized access to systems and data.
Windows Security Model & Multi-Tenant Architecture
ActiveBatch fully supports the Windows security model, including Kerberos and Active Directory, allowing organizations to make use of their existing accounts and groups for simpler management and security of users and groups. ActiveBatch is an object-oriented system, so all user accounts are objects. As a result, all jobs or plans associated with the user account require just one change to the user account object rather than multiple changes to each job or plan.
ActiveBatch also supports LDAP (Lightweight Access Directory Protocol), allowing a user to make use of a single, enterprise-wide directory and provide a single point of administration across a heterogeneous environment.
ActiveBatch’s multi-tenant architecture or “virtual root” allows organizations to designate access and permissions based on organizational needs for a more secure and effective automation environment.
ActiveBatch Supported Authentication Types:
- SAP Credentials
- Twitter Authentication
- Lieberman ERPM
Integration with Lieberman ERPM
ActiveBatch’s integration with Lieberman Software’s Enterprise Random Password Manager (ERPM) provides improved credential and password management for a higher level of secure workflow and job scheduling environment. ActiveBatch’s ERPM integration prevents unauthorized access to workflow objects and minimizes security risks by automating the provisioning of dynamically changing user credentials.
- Automatically push out changes to user credentials
- Minimize credential and password maintenance for IT Operations
- Reduce the risk of security breaches due to static or shared credentials
Audit & Revision Capabilities
ActiveBatch’s comprehensive audit and policy framework drives improved governance throughout the organization by preventing and minimizing the impact of unauthorized changes to workflows. ActiveBatch provides a complete audit trail as well as revision history on each object to allow users to view all changes made within the ActiveBatch environment. As a result, users can more easily track object changes, troubleshoot issues faster and more reliably, and minimize the business impact caused by mistaken changes.
- Revision History
- Revision Rollback
SSL and TSL Connections
ActiveBatch provides an additional layer of security by supporting both SSL and TLS secured connections. With the development of cloud computing and the need to execute jobs across distributed environments beyond the firewall, the ability to provide secure connections between the job scheduler and scheduling endpoints is critical.
