Security is paramount to most organizations, including those whose business relies on mainframe 3270 applications. But accessing the applications through thick-client TN3270 emulators exposes them to web attacks.
Here are seven vulnerabilities of thick-client TN3270 emulators that can be eliminated by migrating to a thin-client browser-based 3270 terminal emulator like Virtel Web Access:
- Exposed Terminal Emulation Code
- Reliance on Internet Explorer
- Exposed Unaudited Macros
- Threatened IAM Integration
- No Access Audit Trail
- VPN-Dependent Encryption
- Exposed 3270 Fields
For a full explanation as to how these vulnerabilities can negatively effect your organization, please download this short PDF. Also included are ways that Virtel Web Access and other web-based 3270 TE solutions guard against these security risks and protect your data and network.
