Siemens-Nixdorf Informationssysteme AG is developing an Advanced Security Analyser, ASAX, for Unix machines, doing the work in collaboration with a Belgian university, and also is looking at a graphical user interface for its BS2000 mainframes. ASAX, which is now in beta testing, can analyse sequential files for security audits. It will be an OEM product, and run on Sun Microsystems Inc, ICL Plc, and Siemens-Nixdorf’s own Unix machines as well as Microsoft Corp’s MS-DOS-based clients. It should be available by February or March 1994. The user interface, meanwhile, is described as a Windows gateway that bridges the gap between the user and the mainframe. No dates for that.
