On its own, AS2 already comes with a nice set of features that enable it to secure EDI transactions. It's got encryption. It's got non-repudiation. It even has data integrity checks as well as a form of server and client authentication. So, even if you run AS2 over HTTP, your data can already get a good amount of protection. Still, it wouldn't hurt to add more layers of protection. And you can do that if you run your AS2 transactions over HTTPS.Read More

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.

In this post, I'm going to take you through the steps of setting up JSCAPE MFT Gateway to establish load balancing across two FTP servers. Load balanced servers can help you achieve high availability for mission critical file transfer services. We're going to start by creating a new FTP cluster consisting of two FTP servers. Once that FTP cluster is ready, we'll then make it accessible to clients by creating an FTP reverse proxy service that will forward client requests to that cluster.
