Managed File Transfer and Network Solutions
JSCAPE is pleased to announce the release of JSCAPE MFT Server 8.0 BETA. This release has a number of exciting new features and performance enhancements that have been identified below.
If you are like most organizations, then your FTP server accepts file uploads from both internal users (employees) and external users (customers and business partners). In addition to ensuring that data is transmitted securely via encrypted protocols such as FTPS and/or PGP, you should also take measures to verify that the data received does not contain a virus or trojan.
This video describes the Virtual File System on JSCAPE MFT Server and jailed users accounts, which is a feature that increases security.
Streamlined FTP Command Extensions is a proposal for 5 new FTP commands. I stress the word proposal, because it seems to have been abandoned, and would not progress to Internet Standard without a good deal of effort. That said, there was a decent amount of interest in at least some of the commands. I'm going to quote liberally from it for some of the descriptions.
Standard FTP already has the REST command, which allows the starting point of a file transfer to be specified:
FTP is quite a stable protocol. It's been used for nearly 4 decades to transfer files. FTP is defined in a series of RFCs (Internet Standards or specifications that describe how to implement the protocol) which are published by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), a standards developing organization.
Many different specifications (RFCs) over the long history of FTP describe its official implementation. FTP is about 40 years old, but there are about 10 "newer" specifications written over the last 25 years that implementors need to take into account, only some of which are linked to each other. You might not find them, even if you know what you're looking for! :)
FTP originated at a time before virtual hosting, where multiple servers are hosted on a single IP address but with different domain names. On the Internet, multiple domain names may resolve to a single IP address.
- Added support for SCP protocol to SFTP service
- Added new experimental AFTP (Accelerated File Transfer Protocol) for performing file transfers over low latency networks
- Added ability to view, revoke and extend ad-hoc file transfers from web interface
