JSCAPE is pleased to announce the release of Secure FTP Factory for .NET 2.4.5
Managed File Transfer and Network Solutions
Using JSCAPE's Secure iNet Factory library, it's not hard to retrieve your email easily and with complete security from GMail, Hotmail or other servers that require APOP authentication, and we'll show you how in this article. On the other hand, how does your hand-addressed Christmas card get all the way across America to your Aunt Petunia's house, traveling over purple mountain majesties and across fruited plains, carried by trains and airplanes and, for Pete's sake, by a friendly mail person who walks it down the street? This process is a complete mystery and some scientist should investigate it!

So let's say you have developed a marvelous herbal supplement that will help men grow larger ears, and you need to share this discovery with the world (or at least, that part of the world that is willing to send you $12.95 for your special mix of grass clippings from your backyard). You can use SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) to route your message through the Internet, and the Secure iNet Factory library to help you write a Java program to do this.

SCP is another old SSH (Secure Shell) file-transfer protocol — it can be traced back to the rcp command that was added to BSD Unix in 1982, which makes it the same age as ET The Extraterrestrial. It may have been the protocol ET used to communicate with his mothership. If he had had JSCAPE's Secure FTP Factory library, things might have gone more easily.
Haven't yet found any compelling reason to deploy data security solutions like managed file transfer (MFT) and data loss prevention (DLP)? Looks like the European Union is about to give you one. If provisions in the leaked draft of the regulation for the new European Data Protection Directive get carried over into the final form of the law, EU companies as well as global companies who operate in EU-member states will have to improve IT security in order to comply with the regulation or risk incurring heavy penalties.
If you're a programmer, you've already learned dozens of TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms). If a phrase has four words, of course, we don't call the acronym an "FLA" because any civilian could understand that. We call it an ETLA (Extended Three Letter Acronym)! In the previous article, you saw how to use JSCAPE's Secure FTP Factory to safely transmit files using the fine ETLA FTPS. This time, we'll show you an even better way to transmit file safely using the even cooler ETLA SFTP. Being able to remember things like this is the mark of a professional programmer.

When two little kids want to exchange a secret, a lot of negotiation is necessary: "Promise you won't tell? Cross your heart and hope to die?". When a client and server computer want to exchange secrets, they need to negotiate too: public keys, encryption methods, ports and more. Fortunately, JSCAPE's Secure FTP Factory and server software (such as JSCAPE MFT Server) handle most of the details for you.
In part 1 of this article, you learned how to setup JSCAPE MFT Server so that it could run an Avast Antivirus autoscan on each newly uploaded file. Just like all antivirus programs, Avast! for Linux/Unix Servers can only be truly effective if its virus database is up-to-date.
Here's some philosophy to go with the Secure FTP Factory library. There are some things in life that you should never do unless you feel completely secure. One of them is withdrawing money from an ATM. You should do this only in a safe, well lit and preferably high traffic environment where you are unlikely to be robbed. Another is uploading or downloading files using plain FTP (File Transfer Protocol).
We all have our favorite antivirus software, so while some of you may have immediately applied what you learned from our tutorials on automatic virus scanning using Kaspersky Antivirus and ClamAV, others may have struggled to apply those tutorials to the antivirus software being used in their organization. That's why we've decided to add one more similar post for another popular antivirus.
