Enhanced printer support
Secures data transmitted over networks and off-site locations.
All aspects of SecureAgent technology can be set up by your own security administrator from any location. Tightly integrated security options give you unprecedented level of control. Easy remote configuration and diagnostics
Optical Media Attach
The IDG 9074 offers Optical Media Attach (OMA) support which can be used as a convenience media to read software distribution shipped on CD, such as from VM, and can be particularly helpful when tape drives are not available.
SecureAgent® products are central to the Disaster Recovery Plans of some of the largest organizations in the world. If a disaster occurs, you need instant access to your critical systems to ensure that business disruptions are minimized and normal operations resume as quickly as possible. Today, where technology and business are converging, any disruption could be devastating. The use of SecureAgent technology can mean the difference for your business between potential disaster and temporary inconvenience. The IDG 9074 Secure Communications Controller from SecureAgent Software provides secure access to any remote disaster recovery site. It simultaneously enables technical personnel to work from local or remote locations, providing the ultimate in continuous secure operations in the event of a disaster.
SecureAgent Administrator (SAA) enables data center personnel to securely administer, from one/several workstation(s), all 9074 machines in the enterprise, regardless of their physical location. Use SAA to set up user ID’s, groups and privilege levels, as well as for configuring 9074 control units, addresses and LU’s.
and User Defined Access
The Secure Domain Server provides logon security, controls user privileges, and manages access rights from a central point. Users can be limited to particular sessions and within each session control extends on a command-by-command basis. All access, authority, privileges, and security functions can be securely administered from a central point of control.
SecureAgent delivers data between the connected machines in an optimized and compressed format. This helps reduce communication delays over networks, including the Internet, as well as enhancing data security.
Thanks to customer-responsive software innovations, the IDG 9074 Secure Communications Controller can now support printers for personal computers, as well as traditional mainframe coax-attached printers, announced product patent holder and SecureAgent Software President R. Brent Johnson.
With the addition of new printer support features, the IDG 9074 can now support locally- or network-attached HP laser printers. Mainframe print data is made acceptable to these types of printers by protocol conversion.
As in the past, the IDG 9074 printer support will drive LU0 (non-SNA
Data Stream Compatibility) and LU3 (SNA Data Stream Emulation) printers
in a line-by-line mode, as well as drive LU1 (SNA Character Sets) that
offers graphic image printing using Intelligent Printer Data Stream
Bringing customer-requested disaster recovery strengths to the IDG 9074 Secure Communications Controller, SecureAgent Software added tape emulation and data retrieval capabilities to its popular and patented controller, announced product patent holder and SecureAgent Software President R. Brent Johnson.
With the ability to emulate certain 3480/90 tape drives, the IDG 9074 can now retain virtual tapes on its hard drive, allowing operators to control virtual data as they would data on real tape.
The operator can copy the virtual tape onto the IDG 9074’s DVD writer. Similarly, when a DVD containing a previously written virtual tape data is inserted into the controller’s drive it will be automatically copied onto the hard drive, making it available for mounting on one of the controller’s virtual tape drives.
Readily available virtual tape make tasks such as stand-alone dumps and DASD pack dump/restores convenient for operators. For example, the contents of a system pack could be dumped (i.e., saved) prior to a system software change and be ready to restore, if required.
It is also possible to IPL from product-generated virtual tape.
