Just a couple of months ago, Amazon rolled out Server Side Encryption (SSE) on its online storage web service, S3. This new feature allows you to encrypt files you upload to S3. Companies who are looking for better protection for data at rest and those who need to comply with regulations like HIPAA or data breach notification laws may find this bit of information very useful.
Managed File Transfer and Network Solutions
With JSCAPE's online FTP client, known as AnyClient Web, you can transfer files securely even if you don't have your laptop with you or if you simply haven't installed (or can't install) an FTP client. All you need is a regular computer, a Java enabled web browser, and of course an Internet connection.
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.
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.
