GT News, an association for financial professionals, just posted an article on managed file transfer titled “Data: Transferring the Burden Under PCI DSS” written Jonathan Lampe, VP of Product Management at Ipswitch.
“When evaluating for data security technology, a company should look at four categories: confidentiality, integrity, availability, and auditing. These headlines are designed to assist in assessing whether a data technology or process is likely to provide one-time compliance for the purposes of PCI DSS.”
This article is a very informative read for people living/coping with PCI DSS compliance and looking for a detailed application of MFT solutions to the 12 PCI DSS requirements. It’s also a good read for people that simply want to know more about MFT and want to learn about Jonathan’s framework for evaluating data security technologies.
IIS administrators, you may have already seen this attack listed on your favorite security sites.
However, I have good news if you’re an Ipswitch customer running MOVEit DMZ or WS_FTP Server under IIS: the filtering mechanisms in both products designed to prevent many types of SQL injection prevent this one as well. Our hosted customers, whether Sendable users or MOVEit DMZ Hosting Services users, also benefit from the same filtering technology and are likewise safe.
You have a huge file. I’m talking 15GB big. And, it needs to be in the hands of its intended recipient as soon as possible.
You can’t send it through email (thanks, file attachment burden!) and you wouldn’t want to anyways, since it contains all sorts of sensitive information. You can’t put it on a thumb drive or burn it to a disc because those are easily misplaced and could end up in the wrong hands. And you certainly can’t send it through a courier service because that’s way too expensive and really, who has the time for that?
So, how’s it gonna get there?
In the time that you wasted trying to figure out how to send that pesky little (ENORMOUS) file…the whole process could have been completed. No joke. You could have sent the file to your recipient’s email account, received a delivery notification, received a download notification, and possibly a phone call from your recipient saying “THANK YOU!!!”
How, do you ask? Why, with Sendable, of course!
