The ClearPath Forward™ platform lines, both those based on the ClearPath® MCP operating system and its sister platforms based on the ClearPath® OS 2200 operating system, offer a secure operating environment for business-critical environments.
This paper describes the ClearPath MCP architecture and operating environment and how it has been designed from the beginning to be secure and how that security has been engrained. ClearPath MCP systems also have the safeguards to protect the business critical data that numerous clients have placed on these platforms. These systems contain detailed auditing mechanisms, robust authentication options, authorization controls, system and user policy management, run time memory access controls, and easy configurability as well as other key features.
This paper details feature content which has been released up to and including the MCP 18.0 release and shows how the system software functionality has enhanced the underlying secure system architecture.
