How To Leverage Cloud Storage Services When Dealing With High Volume File Transfers

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Mon, Jan 07, 2019 @ 02:52 AM

Companies who deal with high volume file transfers on a regular basis quickly run out of storage space. So, with all the the talk about the scalability of the cloud, you might be wondering — wouldn't it be wise to start moving the files you accumulate to a cloud storage service? Of course it is. But there's a proper way to do it.

What Is FIPS Compliance and Should I Enable It For Our File Transfers?

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Mon, Dec 31, 2018 @ 01:16 AM

JSCAPE MFT Server encrypted file transfer protocols like SFTP and those secured through TLS (e.g. HTTPS, FTPS, AS2, OFTP, and WebDAVS) can be configured for FIPS compliance. Since this is a function that isn't switched on by default, you might wonder if it's necessary to enable it at all.

Taking Advantage of SSL/TLS Security When Running AS2 On HTTPS

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Tue, Nov 13, 2018 @ 04:38 AM

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.

Choosing Between SSL Implicit, Explicit, and Forced Explicit Modes

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Sun, Nov 04, 2018 @ 09:07 PM

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.

Load Balancing FTP Services for High Availability

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Sat, Oct 27, 2018 @ 02:48 AM

This post was originally published on July 8, 2012 but was updated on October 27, 2018 

Overview

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.
