Compuware Corporation has released Hiperstation 7.8, the centerpiece of the company’s Application Auditing solution. This new version expands Hiperstation’s capabilities with the integration of Vantage, Compuware’s end-to-end application performance management solution, and the addition of WebSphere MQ and TCP/IP protocols. The new functionality allows organizations to more effectively protect against internal data breaches -- across platforms -- averting monetary losses and meeting regulations including PCI and HIPAA.

Compuware's Application Auditing solution acts like a surveillance camera by recording internal activity between users and business applications. Hiperstation 7.8 improves an organization’s ability to stop internal breaches by expanding the amount of information provided to auditors through increased coverage of application activity.

Rose Rowe, vice president, mainframe strategy, Compuware, noted: “An internal data breach can cost a company millions and the negative publicity can cause loss of customers. Hiperstation 7.8 can help save those millions and give an organization the peace of mind that comes with knowing it’s protected.”

Organizations can now capture application data and usage information across both mainframe and distributed platforms. Visibility into WebSphere MQ and TCP/IP conversations makes it possible to create searchable recordings of production applications and quickly identify potentially suspicious activity. The joint offering of Hiperstation and Vantage gives users a comprehensive understanding of the use of their sensitive data across the enterprise.
