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.

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.

"Always use strong passwords." - You probably don't pay too much attention to this advice, do you? A lot of people don't either. That's why brute force is still one of the favorite techniques for breaking into any password-protected system, including FTP servers. It's really not very difficult to carry out. Let me show you.

Overview

SSL file transfer is a term sometimes used in referring to a secure file transfer protocol known as FTPS or FTP-SSL. FTP is a network protocol used for transferring files, while SSL is a protocol for encrypting information sent over a network. This post is meant to help users understand what FTPS is and what it is capable of doing, particularly in terms of enhancing the security of your file transfers.

Overview

There will be times when you'll want to transfer files over a secure connection. One option is to use FTPS (FTP over SSL) which provides data-in-motion encryption through SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). When you setup an FTPS service in JSCAPE MFT Server, you'll notice that you actually have 3 modes to choose from explicit SSL, forced explicit SSL and implicit SSL.

Overview

The latest version of JSCAPE MFT Server (8.8) already supports SAML Web SSO. Although we introduced SSO and its benefits in previous posts, we never went into the details of specific Web SSO standards like SAML and OpenID (also supported by 8.8). But in order to take advantage of any of our Web single sign-on features, you'll need to have at least some basic understanding of each of these two standards. Today, you can start with SAML.
