Server Integration

An integration server is a PC server used to encourage an association between an assorted working framework and application crosswise over inward and outside organized PC frameworks. An enterprise integration server may incorporate prepackaged applications, altered applications, and heritage applications. Regularly, an integration server has one of two designs: hub-and-spoke model or the network-centric bus model also called the message-bus model.

In the hub-and-spoke model, all applications associate through a central server. The integration server deals with all correspondence, information interpretation, and procedure communications among the associated working frameworks and applications. At the point when another working framework or application is associated, it is naturally coordinated with every other framework. The hub-and-spoke model is better for organizations with constrained data innovation (IT) assets with just a handful of frameworks handling a moderate volume of exchanges.

In the network-centric bus model, all hubs are connected in an arrangement along a typical spine. Correspondence between interconnected working frameworks and applications venture out along the spine to the integration server that handles the information change, interpretation, and steering to the accepting hubs. The network-centric bus model is better for huge ventures that have handfuls or even many frameworks handling overwhelming exchange volumes.

SSIS is an ETL instrument (Extract, Transform and Load) which is especially required for the Data warehousing applications. Additionally, SSIS is utilized to perform tasks like stacking the data-dependent on the need, performing various changes on the data like doing counts (Sum, Average, and so on.) and to characterize a work process of how the procedure should stream and play out certain errands on the everyday movement.

Access control

Not every user should have access to your network. To keep out potential attackers, you need to recognize each user and each device. Then you can enforce your security policies. You can block noncompliant endpoint devices or give them only limited access. This process is network access control (NAC).

Antivirus and antimalware software

“Malware,” short for “malicious software,” includes viruses, worms, Trojans, ransomware, and spyware. Sometimes malware will infect a network but lie dormant for days or even weeks. The best antimalware programs not only scan for malware upon entry, but also continuously track files afterward to find anomalies, remove malware, and fix damage.


Application security

Any software you use to run your business needs to be protected, whether your IT staff builds it or whether you buy it. Unfortunately, any application may contain holes, or vulnerabilities, that attackers can use to infiltrate your network. Application security encompasses the hardware, software, and processes you use to close those holes.


Behavioral analytics

To detect abnormal network behavior, you must know what normal behavior looks like. Behavioral analytics tools automatically discern activities that deviate from the norm. Your security team can then better identify indicators of compromise that pose a potential problem and quickly remediate threats.


Data loss prevention

Organizations must make sure that their staff does not send sensitive information outside the network. Data loss prevention, or DLP, technologies can stop people from uploading, forwarding, or even printing critical information in an unsafe manner.


Email security

Email gateways are the number one threat vector for a security breach. Attackers use personal information and social engineering tactics to build sophisticated phishing campaigns to deceive recipients and send them to sites serving up malware. An email security application blocks incoming attacks and controls outbound messages to prevent the loss of sensitive data.



Firewalls put up a barrier between your trusted internal network and untrusted outside networks, such as the Internet. They use a set of defined rules to allow or block traffic. A firewall can be hardware, software, or both. Cisco offers unified threat management (UTM) devices and threat-focused next-generation firewalls.


Intrusion prevention systems

An intrusion prevention system (IPS) scans network traffic to actively block attacks. Cisco Next-Generation IPS (NGIPS) appliances do this by correlating huge amounts of global threat intelligence to not only block malicious activity but also track the progression of suspect files and malware across the network to prevent the spread of outbreaks and reinfection.


Mobile device security

Cybercriminals are increasingly targeting mobile devices and apps. Within the next 3 years, 90 percent of IT organizations may support corporate applications on personal mobile devices. Of course, you need to control which devices can access your network. You will also need to configure their connections to keep network traffic private.


Network segmentation

Software-defined segmentation puts network traffic into different classifications and makes enforcing security policies easier. Ideally, the classifications are based on endpoint identity, not mere IP addresses. You can assign access rights based on role, location, and more so that the right level of access is given to the right people and suspicious devices are contained and remediated.


Security information and event management

SIEM products pull together the information that your security staff needs to identify and respond to threats. These products come in various forms, including physical and virtual appliances and server software.



A virtual private network encrypts the connection from an endpoint to a network, often over the Internet. Typically, a remote-access VPN uses IPsec or Secure Sockets Layer to authenticate the communication between device and network.


Web security

A web security solution will control your staff’s web use, block web-based threats, and deny access to malicious websites. It will protect your web gateway on site or in the cloud. “Web security” also refers to the steps you take to protect your own website.


Wireless security

Wireless networks are not as secure as wired ones. Without stringent security measures, installing a wireless LAN can be like putting Ethernet ports everywhere, including the parking lot. To prevent an exploit from taking hold, you need products specifically designed to protect a wireless network.

SSIS and DTS Overview

SSIS is an ETL tool (Extract, Transform and Load) which is very much needed for the Data warehousing applications. Also SSIS is used to perform operations like loading the data based on the need, performing different transformations on the data like doing calculations (Sum, Average, etc.) and to define a workflow of how the process should flow and perform some tasks on the day to day activity.

Prior to SSIS, Data Transformation Services (DTS) in SQL Server 2000 performs the tasks with fewer features. With the introduction of SSIS in SQL Server 2005, many new features can be used. To develop your SSIS package, you need to get installed with the SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio which will be available as client tool when installing SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS).



SSMS provides different options to develop your SSIS package starting with Import and Export wizard with which you can copy the data from one server to the other or from one data source to the other. With these wizards, we can create a structure on how the data flow should happen and make a package and deploy it based on our needs to execute in any environment.

Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) is a tool which can be used to develop the SSIS packages. BIDS is available with SQL Server as an interface which provides the developers to work on the work flow of the process that can be made step by step.
