Managed File Transfer and Network Solutions
PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) contains a couple of requirements that practically discourage organizations who handle credit card data from using FTP for their file transfers. In this post, we'll examine those requirements more closely to see what the options are for those who still find it difficult to ditch this antiquated technology.
In one of my previous posts, I defined what an SSL file transfer is. Today, I'm going to show you how to actually set up an SSL file transfer service on JSCAPE MFT Server. After that, I'll demonstrate how an AnyClient user would connect to your server and perform a secure file transfer using that particular service.
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.
In this video tutorial we are discussing the Banned Files module available in JSCAPE MFT Server. This is a discussion about what the Banned Files module is, what it does and how it works.
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.
This is the second installment of a 2 part video tutorial on Using Trading Partners in JSCAPE MFT Server. In Part 1 we provided an overview of trading partners and demonstrated how to create a trading partner using JSCAPE MFT Server Manager. In this installment we will demonstrate how to use a trading partner within a trigger.
In this video post we will discuss the Trading Partners feature of JSCAPE MFT Server. We will discuss what the Trading Partners feature is and what it is for. We will walk through creating a Trading Partner for use in creating Triggers. In Part 2 we will show how you can use trading partners within a trigger.
In this video we will be discussing the JMX feature of JSCAPE MFT Server. I will also show you how to set up a Java profiling application to use this feature.
JMX is basically a technology that lets you implement a management interface on a java application. When this service is enable on JSCAPE MFT Server it will allow you to more closely monitor memory and CPE usage. Once this service is enable you will need to connect to it using a java profiling application to view the statistics. In this example I will show you how to set this up with a profiler called VisualVM.
