Are Your Automated Workloads a Security Nightmare Waiting to Happen?

Are Your Automated Workloads a Security Nightmare Waiting to Happen?


Hackers don’t discriminate. If they can’t impersonate a user to commit their acts, they could impersonate a job. That batch job you run every night at 2 AM with Task Scheduler or Cron? That one that has a plaintext password in the source code? Someone could wreak havoc if they had access to run that job on their terms. Even worse, they could steal credentials from that job and use them to access other systems. (18:19)

How UVA Health Cured SQL Agent Ailments with JAMS Enterprise Job Scheduler

How UVA Health Cured SQL Agent Ailments with JAMS Enterprise Job Scheduler


At the University of Virginia Health System, SQL Agent couldn’t keep pace with increasing user needs for more frequent and accurate patient care reports. The lack of dependencies meant job failures piled up like train crashes, and difficult troubleshooting caused slow and tedious resolution times. In a system where SQL jobs might relate to patient admission or treatment, delays were unacceptable. The team needed a way to manage SQL at the enterprise level. In this recorded webinar, we’ll take you through UVA Health’s Automation Journey and show you how JAMS automates SQL at the enterprise level. (31:16)
