Following a webinar we did last week called “Automating and Securing File Transfers,” industry reporter Dan Burger with IT Jungle spent time talking with Linoma Software’s Chief Architect Bob Luebbe to get his take on the challenges involved in maintaining secure and efficient file transfer processes.
Bob said that he’s seeing a growing number of companies who are looking for solutions that not only manage secure file transfers with trading partners, but also can facilitate database integration and ad-hoc file transfers.
“For one thing,” Luebbe said, “(organizations) want employees to initiate transfers, but with managed and audit capabilities and within an authorized and manageable FTP environment that avoids security exposure. Companies are trying to lock down email to prevent file sharing and there is an emphasis to block the use of free file-sharing sites.”
Check out IT Jungle’s article entitled “Managed File Transfer More Than Meets the Eye” to read more of Bob’s observations, and if you’d like to learn how GoAnywhere addresses the challenges of ad-hoc file transfer security specifically, you’ll want to register for this week’s webinar, “Ad-Hoc File Transfer: Easy and Secure.”
