Overview

OpenPGP encryption is an excellent way of securing sensitive files on a server. Even if the server is compromised, the information in those files can remain secret. On JSCAPE MFT Server, PGP encryption can be made to execute automatically. You can configure the server so that, as soon as a file is uploaded, the server will immediately encrypt it.

JSCAPE MFT Server makes it easy to strengthen secure file transfers with OpenPGP encryption. But before you can protect your files with PGP, you need to create the necessary public/private key pairs. In this post, we introduce you to three ways of doing that.

Applying OpenPGP encryption to a file containing credit card numbers

In Part 1, we showed you how to configure DLP on a group directory in order to detect uploaded files that contained credit card numbers. Then in Part 2, we laid out the steps for sending an automatic email notification whenever such files were detected. This time, we're going to teach you how to protect those files using OpenPGP encryption.  

Using DLP to Protect Credit Card Data - Part 2

If you followed the steps in Part 1, then you should now have a DLP-enabled group. That group directory will have the capability to detect files stored in it that contain certain credit card numbers. If a member of that group attempts to download such a file, the server will prevent the download from taking place and fire a "DLP rule matched" event. In the screenshot below, a user is prevented by JSCAPE's DLP from downloading a file containing MasterCard numbers.

Overview

A large share of all data security breach incidents involve non-malicious company insiders. In fact, Ponemon's "2013 Cost of Data Breach Study: Global Analysis" revealed that an astounding 35% of data security breaches in 2012 were simply caused by negligent employees or contractors. In a file transfer server, where multiple users can share a single folder, such incidents can easily happen.

Overview

Whenever we download files from an external server on a regular basis, we often like to rename each file so that they follow a certain format. This would make it easier for us to group, sort or manage them whenever the need arises. One common practice is to append a timestamp at the end of the filename. This article will teach you how to automate the entire process using JSCAPE MFT Server Triggers.

Overview

One of the reasons why our clients love Triggers is because this feature makes it so easy to set up unmanned, automated file transfers that run overnight or over the weekend. But sometimes, you'll want to specify more than just a schedule. One particular client, for example, wanted to restrict a scheduled download to a certain set of files, which he wanted to specify using a regular expression or regex. This post details the steps we recommended for him to achieve that.

One of the challenges of setting up a high availability environment for transfer servers is in making sure the servers involved have the same configurations. But if you're using JSCAPE MFT Server, there's an easy way. JSCAPE MFT Server's Failover module allow you to synchronize your servers either automatically or manually with a single click.
