Web SSO support comes to JSCAPE MFT Server in the form of two widely accepted standards: OpenID and SAML. Earlier this month, we already talked about SAML. So now it's time to get acquainted with OpenID.
JSCAPE is pleased to announce the latest release of JSCAPE MFT Server Plugin for Outlook. This version (3.0) includes several improvements, the most notable being added support for Outlook 2013 and the ability to perform ad-hoc file transfers using either of the available REST or WebDAV services in JSCAPE MFT Server.
Since version 8.8, JSCAPE MFT Server (now at v9.1) has already supported 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 (another supported Web SSO). 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.
In a previous post, we taught you how to set up an Android file transfer service on JSCAPE MFT Server as well as how to install and configure its client app on an Android device. However, we never went into the details of an actual upload and download process. This post should take care of that.
In this tutorial, I'll show you how to carry out file transfers between an iPhone or iPad and JSCAPE MFT Server. This capability is ideal for organizations who have adopted some form of BYOD policy and want to establish secure backups and file transfers between iOS mobile devices and a company-owned server.
To support both regular and sensitive data transfers, businesses typically reinforce their FTP service with a secure file transfer protocol like SFTP. But while these secure network protocols do a good job in protecting data during transmission, data-in-motion security isn't the only thing trading partners require from a file transfer system.
There was a time when the average computer user had to enter login credentials only once per day - likely to simply gain access into the Windows environment. But in this cloud-computing/mobile device age, unless you've activated the "stay signed in" option (assuming it's available), you'd probably have to login to 5 or even 20 different Web sites or online applications per day.
JSCAPE, the leader in platform independent managed file transfer solutions, is pleased to announce a new release of our iOS and Android clients for use with JSCAPE MFT Server. This new release truly empowers mobile users with many new features and enhancements but most significantly is the addition of offline mode. Offline mode allows you to view/access documents that you have previously downloaded on your mobile devices without the need for an internet connection. This functionality is particularly useful in travel conditions where Internet access may be spotty or temporarily unavailable.
The additional features/enhancements include:
In Part 1 and Part 2 of this series we focused on the basics of PCI DSS. Now that you've become familiar with the general requirements for achieving PCI DSS compliance, your next step would be to scout for solutions that would help you meet them. In that regard, allow us to present JSCAPE MFT Server and JSCAPE MFT Gateway, two products that already have the necessary features to meet practically all technical requirements specified in PCI DSS that affect file transfer systems.
