New security enhancements to Hybrid Data Pipeline include external authentication over OAuth, LDAP, Okta and more, plus FIPS support for federal compliance.
Hybrid Data Pipeline, the groundbreaking data access service from DataDirect, recently released several new features to meet market demand and remain on the cutting edge of data services. Security requirements are in higher demand than ever before, and Hybrid Data Pipeline continues to be at the forefront of data security.
Hybrid Data Pipeline is a lightweight, embeddable data access service that simplifies integration by connecting directly to the data. This enables applications to use SQL or OData to perform real-time access to on-premises and cloud data. This prevents developers from having to do ETL. Connecting directly to the data in real-time is more agile than setting up a middle tier and is better than ETL for several use cases.
Progress DataDirect is committed to providing secure data access to its customers. Upon identification of any security vulnerability that would impact one or more Progress product(s), Progress will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to address the vulnerability in accordance with the following guidelines:
(CVSS 8+ or industry equivalent)
Active (i.e. latest shipping version) and all Supported versions
(CVSS 5-to-8 or industry equivalent)
Active (i.e. latest shipping version)
(CVSS 0-to-5 or industry equivalent)
Next major release or best effort
* Priority is established based on the current version of the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS), an open industry standard for assessing the severity of computer system security vulnerabilities. For additional information on this scoring system, refer to this page.
Progress partners are using the Hybrid Data Pipeline technology to access data in the cloud or on-premises behind a firewall. In one example, a partner is exposing standard SQL/REST from multiple data sources. Hybrid Data Pipeline’s new release allows them to leverage existing LDAP security while continuing to access data in many sources. Another partner scenario involves a financial company with strict data governance requirements managed via OAuth.
Support for external authentication in the latest Hybrid Data Pipeline release enables both of those companies to access their data with minimal security effort, as well as delivering compliance with federal standards.
