IBM Sales Center Client security

Security is an important concern whenever technology and commerce are involved. The IBM Sales Center client is no exception. It is important that you take the following precautions with the machines where the IBM Sales Center client is installed.

  1. Files under the IBM Sales Center installation path (SC_installdir) should be treated with care as their exposure could cause security problems. Ensure that proper file permissions and access control settings can be set to protect these files.
  2. Ensure the client is behind a firewall.
  3. Physically secure the machine from intruders.
  4. Use a password-protected screen saver.

Without these precautions, an intruder would be able to install software on the client machine that would compromise the security of the information in the IBM Sales Center.
