10 Ways to Make File Transfers Easier, Automated and Secure

If you’re still managing file transfer processes using traditional methods that include complicated scripts and legacy programs, the potential risks are great. In addition to being a drain on your time, they could also be putting critical data at risk.

10 Ways to Make File Transfers Easier, Automated and SecureIn a recent webinar, “10 Ways to Make File Transfers Easier, Automated and Secure“, Linoma Software chief architect Bob Luebbe talked about key issues and how they are easily addressed using a modern Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution.

The challenges covered included:

  • old technology still in use
  • time consuming manual processes
  • a lack of error alerts or audit logs to meet compliance rules
  • employees sending files unchecked through email, cloud-sharing and portable storage devices

Luebbe went on to introduce the advantages of MFT, and offered the top three considerations when evaluating an MFT solution:

  1. ease of use
  2. centralized security and control
  3. auditing and alerts

Following Bob’s presentation, software development manager Steve Luebbe gave a tour of Linoma Software’s GoAnywhereMFT Suite and demonstrated how it can help users to simplify, automate and secure file transfers.

The webinar ended with a summary of the 10 ways MFT helps in the areas of secure file transfer, full feature data translation and time-saving automation.

This free on-demand webinar is recommended for anyone managing mission-critical file transfers, organizations with individuals sending sensitive file attachments through email and cloud storage (i.e., Dropbox), and IT professionals faced with increasing regulatory and compliance requirements.

What GoAnywhere Customers Should Know About LogJam

Logjam“LogJam Computer Bug Could Wreak Havoc”USA Today

“A Frightening New Vulnerability Could Let Hackers Bypass The One Thing That Keeps Us Safe Online”Business Insider

“FREAK-like LogJam Attack Undermines TLS Security” Infosecurity Magazine

“Enterprise, Cloud Services Exposed as Vulnerable to LogJam”ZDnet

With frightening headlines appearing last week in various news outlets around the world, it’s no wonder people are paying attention to the Diffie-Hellman key exchange attack also known as LogJam. The extremely popular Diffie-Hellman key exchange algorithm allows Internet protocols to negotiate secure connections using shared keys and is integral to protocols such as HTTPS, SMTPS, IPsec and those reliant on TLS.  LogJam exploits a flaw that could allow eavesdropping and data manipulation on affected HTTPS websites.

GoAnywhere Not Vulnerable to LogJam Attack on SSL/TLS.
GoAnywhere Services relies on the JSSE provider for handling SSL/TLS handshake operations. If configured properly, GoAnywhere is not vulnerable to the SSL/TLS Diffie Hellman key exchange attack known as LogJam.

To avoid this attack in GoAnywhere, configure your HTTPS/AS2, FTP, and FTPS Services to only enable cipher suites that utilize the Elliptic Curve DH key exchange algorithms.

For any GoAnywhere customers who have concerns or need assistance in ensuring their system is configured properly, our dedicated Support Team is always available to help. There are several convenient ways to connect with us. You can learn more on our Customer Support page at GoAnywhere.com.

Vendors and contractors can be authorized to access designated documents, and it’s an efficient way to accommodate requests by regulatory bodies.  You can also streamline the distribution of documents to job candidates and new hires.

File shares can be expired quickly and easily at any time due to termination, changes in vendor relations or at the completion of a disclosure commitment.  Permission settings on each file share let you define view-only, download, upload and delete rights.  Best of all, version control enables any document in GoDrive to be restored to a previous version and deleted files can be easily recovered without assistance from an IT Specialist.
