Guarding code under development against unauthorized access ensures production system integrity while greater automation of updates eliminates error-prone manual procedures.
Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
Revelation Software Concepts Pty Ltd(RSC), a pioneer and market leader in simplifying change control for users of SAP® solutions, today announced Salt version 2.9.2 advanced change intelligence software for IT systems based on SAP software. The new version tightens security and guards production systems against compromise, reduces overhead, speeds operation and makes Salt updates easier.
To speed up the Salt 2.9.2 update process, new server-side capabilities allow automatic overnight downloads of Salt software updates. For increased security, administrators can automatically allow or disallow logins based on transaction code authorization. The update also hardens data storage mechanisms and applies the latest security patches to both utility packages and the core operating system. Guarding code under development against unauthorized access ensures production system integrity while greater automation of updates eliminates error-prone manual procedures.
“The new version enhances standard authentication processes to provide greater administrative and developer control,” notes Dave Gordon, CIO at RSC. “For example, customers can turn on enforcement authorization and keep check-in logs after validating a Salt user. Developers will know that anyone else coming in to read project code or make changes is a known collaborator. The heightened security of an uncompromised production system is important to most company IT teams.”
Benefits of Salt 2.9.2 features include:
- Tighter security: Encrypted SMTP email server password storage, administrator-configured automatic transaction-code authorization at user log-in, and latest core-system and utility package security patches make Salt operations more secure than ever
- Simpler, faster updates: Server-side software updates with overnight downloads greatly simplify and accelerate the Salt software update process
- Enhanced performance: The back-end Salt engine is now integrated with the web application to reduce overhead and support, while intelligent prioritization of tasks optimizes the user interface, and makes it both faster and more responsive
- Expanded Change Summary Reports: Expanded help within each change summary report explain in greater detail how each data point is calculated and interpret what it means
Salt 2.9.2 also includes various “under the hood” optimizations that speed operation while Salt delivers its detailed change intelligence via the same maintenance-free virtual appliance dashboard now used for Salt on hundreds of SAP solution-powered IT systems around the world.
