Upgrade Your Security with PowerBuilder
PowerBuilder 2022 R2 provides numerous new features to strengthen your application security, many of which can be implemented with minimal effort.
Projects deployed with the PowerClient are securely installed and updated to users over HTTPS. The client application will be automatically encrypted to prevent source code theft or tampering, automatically verified for integrity before executing to avoid executing harmful files, and digitally signed to conform to security best practices.
TLS 1.3 Compliance
Secure HTTP & Database communication with TLS 1.3 by using HTTPClient, MSOLEDBSQL driver, and Oracle 23c. TLS 1.2 is the minimum level considered to be secure, and is required for numerous regulatory compliances (e.g. PCI, HIPAA, GDPR, etc.).
Web Service Security
Authenticate SOAP or REST Web services with OAuth2.0 or JWT tokens by utilizing the new HTTPClient. OAuth2.0 is considered to be far more secure than older authentication schemes, especially basic authentication. You can also secure your REST Web services with two-way TLS Authentication.
Encrypt your data with some of today’s strongest asymmetric and symmetric encryption algorithms. All key encryption-related steps from generating keys to verifying data integrity can be performed natively in PowerScript.
WebView2 Web Browser
Improve Web browser security by replacing the obsolete OLE browser (Internet Explorer 7) with the WebView2 WebBrowser control. Internet Explorer 7 has many known security vulnerabilities and is no longer maintained by Microsoft.
